Final Update

CSPAN cut away from coverage just as things were getting interesting. It's like the time in 2002 that our local ABC affiliate decided to pre-empt the World Cup final with an infommercial. Bastards.
Well, Norfolk South stayed Tory, Norwich and Ipswich stayed Labour, and no news yet as I prepare for bed on St Albans. Rural Cambridgeshire and Suffolk are pretty much true blue Conservative as always.
The big news on a confusing night is that the Tories are mounting a modest resurgence against the big target of a sitting Labour government- bad news for immigrants and sensible reality based politics I fear. The Liberal Democrats are on course for their biggest slice of seats since Lloyd George lead the once great party of Victorian government into genteel decline in the twenties.
