The local elections in England then? Here in That London we don't get a vote on anything this year, but where are OTF's coal-in-the-bath carrot-crunchers going to be casting their votes?

When is that? A week today?

I'm voting Green. I might take the next day off work and sit up all night watching the results come in.

So might I, but that's cos I'm a tedious nerd about this sort of stuff. And you never know, Blair might resign in the middle of the night or something.

I'm not particularly nerdy about it, but I like any sort of TV that gives me more information than my feeble mind. Mix that with a bag of weed and half a bottle of decent gin, and you're onto something. I still don't think it's sunk into the Labour Party yet that they're going to take a battering.

We have five BNP councillors in Stoke-on-Trent. I will therefore - and for no particularly constructive reasons - be voting Labour.

I'm a candidate in Hove (=no chance of becoming a councillor).

Count won't be until the next day; apparently there was fisticuffs last time, so they're having it booze free and sober like. What's the bloody point, I ask you?

Smuggle a load of booze in Nathan, and you might be able to win favour with the people counting the votes.

Good luck anyway.

Good luck, NHH.

I'm surprised that there has ever been fisticuffs in Hove over anything other than the council's policy on bowling greens.

We have elections in North West Leicestershire. However, as noone has put anything through my door yet or tried to convince me to vote for them, I have no idea where they stand on the local issues.

At present I will be spoiling my paper.

In Staffordshire Moorlands they have a crazy party called the 'Ratepayers' who always seem to win. They're basically Tories, but who don't want to be associated with the Tories for some reason or another. Farming bastards.

Erm, the one I joined at the age of 18. You know, the disreputable ones currently running the country.

Is Hove part of Brighton council? And if so, thus embroiled in that big brouhaha over the school places 'lottery'.

Yep - merged when they created the City status lark. That makes sense, regardless of the City bollocks.

That school policy's on the right lines, sort of, isn't it?

We've got a weak case of "the elections" in Worcester.

As I'm the Branch Chair, I suppose I'd better resist the temptation to vote Green, and will vote for our young, no-hope-of-winning, Labour candidate.

The Green candidate for our neighbouring ward is called Olaf Twiehaus, which I reckon is a pretty perfect name for a Green.

Good luck, Nathan!
