Apparently, they will be announced on Sunday evening/Monday morning, so an all nighter, but at the end of the weekend.

In the past, the verification process (checking that the number of ballot papers in each box matches the number issued) has taken place on the Thursday night with the count itself on Sunday. This year (here at least), the verification process is on Sunday morning. I have been led to believe that the count will start in the afternoon which may mean a declaration very soon after the polls have closed in the countries sensible enough to vote on Sunday.

It goes beyond that. Just one week before the local elections there was a Tory MP on HIGNFY. That, apparently, was perfectly OK. The BBC / Hat Trick Production went ahead and recorded the programme on Thursday night knowing that there was an election due in just two weeks' time. They obviously went ahead in t he belief that there wouldn't be a problem. They spent Friday editing the programme and were all set to show it. Then, less than an hour before it was due to be shown, the show was pulled. The whole thing stinks.

Meanwhile, Farage is on the Andrew Marr show tomorrow along with a Labour and Tory guest. No doubt he will be given the usual soft ride. There will be no Lib Dem on the show. There wasn't one on the show last week either, despite the fact that it came just a few days after the party had performed spectacularly well in the local elections. I look forward to the whole of next week's show being given over to Vince Cable or Tom Brake (EU spokesman) just to restore balance

And, just to add to the mix, the BBC are due to show the first episode of o five=part series about Thatcher on Monday night. According to my EPG her inner circle will be revealing how she rose to be PM. That makes it sound like a series of one-hour Tory PPBs, but apparently that's OK a few days before an election.

Doesn't sound fair - is it from one of her auto/biographies? I've read a few and they're quite good. But yeh propaganda just before a vote. Might help to highlight how her system has caused the flaws we are living with nowadays though!

If so, I suspect that won’t be until later episodes - after the election.
