Well, I decided to try and LievBlog the election tonight. Ed was unavailable, because being the tard he is, never has his phone on, and almost everyone else I know has too much of a life to do something so dull. Except Toby - The Scottish Powerlifting Monster - who is joining me. So, enjoy as we offer our perspectives on the counting of the Ballotts!
Voice 22:46 - who are all these people in the background counting the votes? Are they just random people who volunteer to come in and count the votes? I remember when my brother was running in our school elections, and his class were counting the votes - they cheated like anything, and got his party to win, when on figures they lost! Could happen here, too...
Voice 22:47 - Ha! That's my constituency back home! Adrian Sanders - I know that guy... Well, I say KNOW, ifI actually knew him, I probably would have vote for him!
Voice 22:53, Houghton and Sunderland - 19,000 votes to Labour vs Tories 8,000? Damn, that's a big victory! I had no idea this many people voted in each constituency! And She's down 10%??? INSANE!
Toby 22:54 - why are they cheering so much, it was obvious that labour where gonna win sunderland - its the north...
Voice 22:57 - 55% Turnout is LOW? My God, I thought only about 20% of people voted - guess I'm in the minority...
Toby 22:58 - You didn't Vote?
Voice 22:58 - nope
Toby 22:58 - lol
Voice 22:59 - Who did you vote for?
Toby 22:59 - lib dems(go ahead, throw your vote away). they are doing better than i expected tbh
Voice 23:00 - fair enough. I did consider voting, but couldn't be bothered in the end
all as bad as each other, really...
Toby 23:01 - yeah I voted for clegg because he kinda has a chance of doing something and he isnt gordon brown or david cameron.
Toby 23:02 - You watching on BBC parliament, or on real TV?
Voice 23:02 - iPlayer
Toby 23:03 - a whole fucking vote counted allready
Toby 23:04 - the glasgow central MP is a muslim -first MP to swear his oath by the quaran and shit, and theres loads of muslims here, and they are the kinda people who ALL vote. and they wont even read the fucking things, just vote for a muslim
Voice 23:05 - huh, i'd never realised there were muslims in glasgow - i figured it was like devon...
Toby 23:05 - tehres a big mosque and shit man - they are everywhere
Voice 23:06 no hung parliament, huh? well, he is from oxford - obviously gonna go on about how great tories are
Toby 23:07 - ?

Toby 23:13 - some old woman gave me a green party flier when i was in the polling station.
Toby 23:14 - our quote of the week was one flamtate taking the piss out of the other
- "mark knows so little about politics that he thinks gordon brown is a shade of paint".
Voice 23:14 - lol
Toby 23:15 - fuck yeah!

Toby 23:16 - haha fuck yeah! he got her telt.

Voice 23:16 - the fuck was that? Just cut out.
Toby 23:17 - he mentioned the old lib dem leader, so got cut off. simple as lol
Toby 23:17 - i am quite impressed, the only people who actually asked me to vote for them on the street where the green party - and i live in a fucking city centre...

Voice 23:20 - I saw their page on Facebook. Don't really know what they stand for. Plundering, I guess... and parrots.
Voice 23:21 - 2:30? Fuck, this is gonna be a long night!
Toby 23:22 - they want to stop interent stuff like let people download everything freely and shit, but they have other policies - they will never become anything man
Voice 23:23 - what do you expect, they're called the 'Pirate Party'.
Toby 23:23 - you know like

*the BNP manifesto - the word count breakdown is hillarious
Voice 23:23 - let's hear it.

Toby 23:28 - labour are obviously gonna win the north east - they allways fuckin do...
Voice 23:29 - David Cameron requires a Huge swing, huh?
"This is the largest Swing we're seen since 1945".
What's with all the cock references?
Toby 23:30 - lol - swing is bullshit anyway man. who cares what the swing is?conservitive didnt win the seat, so why bother with it?
Voice 23:30 - reporters trying to fill the time before results are released...

Voice 23:32 - I don't recall...
Voice 23:34 - dude won't shut up, lol
Toby 23:36 - if people voted for who they actually wanted to
*lib dems would do better
*loads of people i know are voteing conservative becuase they wanted change but lib dems didnt stand a chance of winning
*loads of people have that view, meaning lib dems get fucked and conservatives get boosted up...
Voice 23:36 - yeah, but to be fair, they were never going to win anyway
Toby 23:37 - yeah but if everyone thinks that they will never go nywherem, wheras if people vote for them, more and more will eventually when they realise that conservatives are retards too
Voice 23:37 - lol, but that will take about 5 elections for people to cotton on - maybe this is the first one, and will lead the way for future elections...
Toby 23:38 - yeah, but thats how it works
Voice 23:39 - this chick seems to think tories have a chance in sunderland central
Toby 23:39 - lol fuck off- they have the other sunderland ones, whats gonna change it here?

*i heard 20,000 not 12,000 at first
Voice 23:43 - they wish!
Toby 23:44 - oh i bet she was
Voice 23:44 - I dunno, 1,900 people voting BNP is still quite a lot
Toby 23:45 - yeah.
So if conservatives "win", but its a hung parlament, david cameron becomes PM, but doesnt have majority in house of commons?
Voice 23:46 - i believe that's the case, yes
Toby 23:47 - "a selection of people" is bullshit...
Voice 23:48 - fuck does harriot harmon know about if they have a legitimate legal challenge?that's up to the courts, surely.
Toby 23:48 - someone told her in her in her ear piece
Voice 23:48 - should have got there earlier if it meant so much to them...
Toby 23:49 - yeah, i went at like 2. me and my flamtates where only people apart from one other guy who was leaving as we went in.
Toby 23:49 - ukip... hes not gonna win it anyway
Voice 23:50 - lol - Dimbleby just dissed Griffin! Whoooaaa!!!!

Voice 23:52 - lol, that guy sounded like Richard hammond...
Toby 23:52 - this is hillarious
Voice 23:53 - the plane crash? you're a sick man, my friend...
Toby 23:53 - its still hillarious - not that it was a plane crash, that it happened when he was pulling a UKIP banner behind it
Toby 23:55 - he has it right man - too early to say, so stop doing it
Voice 23:56 - oh, diss! Pull out Milliband just when he's bitching about labour!
Toby 23:57 - this program needs more thatcher

*think he got thrown out
Voice 23:58 - LMAO! I bet he did
*he's always being sued...
Toby 23:58 - becuase he says what he actually thinks. yeah
Voice 23:59 - doubt there'll be a difference of less than 600, tbh
Toby 23:59 - i bet john smith was on the list man
Voice 00:00 - he musta been pissed off dimbleby just told everyone he didn't vote...
Toby 00:00 - lol
Voice 00:00 - it's a new day, man! No way those mofos can vote now!
Toby 00:01 - lol
Voice 00:02 - last couple of days isn't really enough in my books - look at the preceding 3 years, people!
Toby 00:03 - good old herbert
Voice 00:04 - John Major!!!! lol!!!!
Toby 00:05 - it doesnt fucking matter who wins - if they dont reform the house of lords
Voice 00:05 - i dunno, house of lords has less power than it used to - it can no longer block bills, only delay them.
Toby 00:06 - Still, people should be elected to run the country in any way.
Voice 00:07 - an elected queen is an amusing concept. I like your style, man
Toby 00:07 - neh, not that - because she has like NO power
Voice 00:07 - NO real power, no, but all the theoretical power in the world
Toby 00:08 - theoretical power is useless - and shes german
Voice 00:08 - i'm part german you bastard!
Toby 00:09 - i didnt say it was a bad thing man
Toby 00:10 - then she should've stayed in the queue at 6, stupid bitch
Voice 00:10 - yeah, true that. people are so fucking impatient, then bitch too much over nothing
Toby 00:10 - if it means THAT much to them, then queue for it
Voice 00:11 - lol - i would laugh if cameron won the general election, but lost his own seat
Toby 00:12 - lol
arent there local electiosn going on too, on a differnet ballot paper?
*so like labour could win local, but conservatives overall or some stupid shit
Voice 00:12 - David Starkey! I remember reading his stuff in A level history - think he teaches at Exeter...

Voice 00:31 - If people I'd promised I would vote for called me to make me go out, I would intentionally vote against them! Actually, I probably wouldn't have voted anyway...
Voice 00:32 - Cameron stopping off in a pub? Getting ready for when he takes over as PM, and realises how awful his inheritance is...
Voice 00:34 – The Queen isn’t seeing anyone until after lunch? Are the results all going to be in by then?
Voice 00:37 – Man, Dimbleby’s got a hard-on for these constituencies without enough Ballot papers, hasn’t he?
I think Toby’s gone...
00:40 – Dimbleby’s microphone’s broken – he sounds like “Big Brother” – watching us all...
00:41 – 5 declerations now! Oh, but it’s Ireland, and Sinn Fein have one. Well, not gonna affect me – not as if they could ever get into power over here.
Toby 00:41 - was away for a while. yeah bring on boris
00:42 - I noticed. Are you listening to this cunt?

Toby 00:55 – seriously, this guy – “they dont have over 50%, but if you add the other 2 major parties together, they do”
Voice 00:55 - lol - now that's a slightly retarded comment. I think he's just saying we're looking at a hung parliament.
Toby 00:56 - yeah lol

Voice 00:57 - LMAO!
Toby 00:57 – lol he is Irish

Voice 01:28 – I believe so, yes.
Toby 01:29 - SNP is weird - they get in, what do they do - make scotland an independant country

it MAY be because of the minority vote?
Toby 01:49 - neh

Voice 01:59 - The Tories are performing worse in Wales and Scottland? Never! Lol – who hires these guys?
Voice 02:00 - Kirstie Allsop’s such a posh slut – I’d do her. That's a reference to the sexism and racism thing before, btw. Don't sue me! But I totally would...
And the dude from “in the loop!” awesome! And Shapi Korsandi‘s there – wow, three people I actually recognise!

Voice 02:24 – DAAAAAAAMMMN! Lembit Opik just got Prawned! Girl on the left looked alright.
Voice 02:25 You’re right, Dimbleby – very confusing. And late – I think I’m gonna call it a night, everyone (seen Toby seems to have left some time ago)! Have a good night – and I hope whoever you voted for gets in. Unless they’re cock. Which they are, because they’re politicians. Later, dudes!
