LIVE election and results blog

What a great night of live election blogging we had last night. Loads of people on, up to the minute results and analysis, lots of laughs and the odd bit of verbal abuse. Great fun! Thanks to all who spent the night with us and made the General Election tolerable. :-)

I bet loads of fascists will be joining in. It's only through Lancaster UAF that they can get detailed info. about what's going on in their own party.

Excellent. I'm looking forward to it. :)

The BNP are already preparing their excuses for tomorrow's expected poor results. They are:

"ZanuLabLibCon" and the Electoral Commission have secretly conspired to destroy BNP votes before they are counted and give every ethnic minority man, woman and even child multiple votes where the BNP are strong.

OK, got that?

I predict Griffin to finish a poor third, and a net loss of council seats in Barking (and nation-wide), and the Stoke Central seat to see the BNP trailing in outside the top three - and quite possibly on an approximate par with the National Front. And a net loss of council seats there, as well.

Remember, you read it here first!

EDL UPDATE:

-----------------------
English Defence League protesters appear before Dudley magistrates
May 6 2010 by Matt Lloyd, Sunday Mercury

MEMBERS of the right-wing English Defence League (EDL) who held a rooftop protest in the Black Country were remanded in custody charged with burglary and inciting religious hatred.

Leon Mccreery, 28, of Dumbarton Road, Stockport, and John Shaw, 39, of Littondale Avenue, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, indicated not guilty pleas before Dudley magistrates yesterday after the Bank Holiday Monday demonstration.

They will appear via video-link at Dudley Magistrates’ Court for a committal hearing on May 10.

The pair allegedly occupied the roof of a disused factory on Hall Street, Dudley, in protest at plans for a new mosque on the site.

During the protest Islamic calls to prayer were played over loud-speakers.

Meanwhile police quashed rumours the pair had been denied access to legal advice whilst in custody which had been spread on social networking site Facebook.

Chief Inspector Matt Markham, who monitored Monday’s protest, said: “All those held in police custody are held in accordance with the Police and Criminal Evidence Act and codes of practice which set out clearly the rights of those in custody.”

Of Monday’s police operation to control the EDL protest, which attracted around 200 supporters of the group to Dudley, he said: “The EDL gave us no prior warning as they have done traditionally.”

BNP webshite replaced with a single static web page as of 12.26

Denise said...

The BNP website this afternoon:

A message from Simon Bennett due to the volume of phone calls and emails I am receiving:

This website and domain are no longer in my control. I have not sabotaged it. The domain name has been pointing to the new BNP server since last night (5th May) which is completely out of my hands. If your Emails are affected, again this is completely out of my hands and control.

If you are reading this message it is because they have set up their server incorrectly and this needs to be resolved by the new webmaster.

It is important to note that I have been working hard to negotiate a seamless switchover of the website, but for reasons unknown to me the leadership have chosen to force the domain from me, steal my work, data and systems and go it alone rather than paying for it. I will continue to work hard to try and resolve the situation quickly, professionally and amicably. This is in the hands of Nick Griffin and Jim Dowson, not me.

It should also be noted that they have decided to put a personal grudge against me before the interests of the party and its members. This was not a fight of my choosing.

Denise said...

Bennett posting on BDF:

I have truth on my side and hence nothing to fear. The very fact that Nick is trying to pressure me into signing a non disclosure agreement should tell you something. I have no intentions of signing anything whatsoever.

Denise said...

From the Grauniad's election live blog:

“According to people out campaigning against the BNP in Barking and Dagenham there is no sign of the far-right party’s London organiser, Bob Bailey, who was caught on camera fighting with some local teenagers yesterday. However, the BNP’s London Assembly member, Richard Barnbrook, is apparently furious with Bailey and has been on the phone to party leader Nick Griffin.

This is latest in a series of setbacks for the BNP in recent weeks, but campaigners at Hope Not Hate said this morning that things are still very tight in Barking – particularly in the council elections. Forty or 50 volunteers have already turned up to help get out the anti-racist vote, but they say more are needed – especially from 4pm onwards.”

Re: Bennett

If they are acting like this before the election (when differences are patched over) imagine what it's going to do like after! Griffin's only hope is to get a high vote (I don't expect any MP's or control of a council) so he can spin it to save himself.

Sunderland results expected soon

2005 bnp results
Sunderland South 1,166 (3.8%)
Sunderland North 1,136 (3.9%)
Houghton and Washington East 1,367 (3.9%)

Boundaries/constituency names have changed but look out for city-wide vote.
Sunderland was the first local authority to field a full slate of candidates in 2004. This year they've only been able to contest half the wards as they're in a real mess.

I already posted this elsewhere, but in the BNP fight video BNP thug Bob Bailey insulted the Asian lads, calling them "robbers" (why?!) before they came over, then, BEFORE they spat at him, Bob Bailey also called one lad a "***** bugger" (bleeped).

This is not audible in most of the shorter edits of the fight that the BBC broadcast, but can be seen / heard in this footage...

Anonymous said...

There was only a 55% turnout in Sunderland and still the BNP share of the vote is down 2%. The higher the voter turn out generally means a smaller share of the vote for the BNP. This result is a good indication that it should be a bad night for the BNP!

Is Houghton Sunderland a different place to Sunderland South, then? Wasn't is 3.9% in Sunderland South last time, and 1961 is a fraction over 5% this - and a saved deposit? If the figures are correct, and my maths. I don't have a TV, so relying on you for the results.
If it is a saved deposit, bad news to start, but hardly a major result; a result that will be forgotten in a few days at most.

Houghton was not part of the Constituency last time. So difficult to guage BNP support from this one seat. 8 per cent swing to Tories. Labour lost around ten per cent.

OK, not the same seats as before, but the three seats combined still cover about 98% of the same people as they did in 2005, so to say votes have gone up is fair comment.
But still early days, and the NE is not a great battlezone for UAF or BNP, very much a backwater.
Let's not get too het up as to the exact % swing, but accept that the BNP has improved its vote, by quite a bit, in Sunderland, but nowhere near the extent they need to to be a serious force in the area.
More interesting results will be in soon, at the moment it is 0-0 with the BNP showing a bit more than we would like in the first few minutes, but no goal yet!

Probably beaten by the Bring-a-Bottle Party. This is like the old days and the laughable results the NF used to get.

saved deposit

Sedgefield: Mark Walker just retains deposit. Bnp vote down on 2007 by-election result (2,494) as opposed to 2,075 today.

Should we blame the candidates's spot of bother at work and ensuing NSPCC investigation?

City of Durham: bnp lose deposit (2.5%). Candidate Musgrave puts money into the bnp - he paid deposit for 2007 Sedgefield by-election.

After 38 results in, the BNP have 27 492 votes in total and (I believe, correct me if I'm wrong) six deposits saved - several votes of less than 1%, highest vote 6.6%.
OK, their best seats are yet to come, but it's hardly a political earthquake so far, is it?

BNP 1.8% of total votes cast thus far

How will the BBC justify their next support of them?

"Candidate Musgrave puts money into the bnp - he paid deposit for 2007 Sedgefield by-election."

A lot of BNP candidates are 'guilt tripped' into stumping up their own deposits (except, of course, for Griffin's favoured inner circle). Mugs!
