I'm actually surprised.  I thought his cheeky celebrityness might keep him in.

National press doesn't mean doodoo if his constituent service was lousy.  If he didn't work for the people in his district.  In short, if he was more concerned about grabbing headlines than doing his damn job.

Ive always assumed he was actually secretly Gay, and the celebrities were cover, but thats my cynical reading of celebrity culture rather than anything concrete

OMG no.  I've met him a number of times. He is a perv. My large chested friend wasn't looked at in the eye once.

Thought we were discussing Lembit? He's a Lib Dem.

I thought we were talking about fat-boat-party guy?

Ignore me.  I'm usually in bed two hours earlier than now, so if I go crazy in the next couple hours, you've all been warned.

If the fat Boat party guy is the one I think you're refering too then by co-incidence both him and lembit are part of long running private eye photo jokes

He has just been interviewed, you can see he's been crying.  It's obviously unexpected for him.

In the opinion of some people who aren't necessarily here tonight, Opik might be charitably described as a bit of a nutter.

But what happened to the LD vote? Where is it?

No one believed the exit poll, but it's looking more and more like it was spot on again.

I don't see any way to describe this other than as a disaster for the Lib-Dems.

It's a disaster for everyone - almost no danger of PR at all.

But a win for Murdoch and the gutter press, as usual.

One thing, a month ago the Cons were considered a shoo-in.  Whatever happens, it isn't going to be that.

The fact that Cameron is at all doubtful to get a majority is pretty pathetic for the Tories.

Ironically, the only guy who seems to be getting above expectations in this election is Gordon Brown.
