    That Portillo Moment

    Justine Greening would have been a hell of a Portillo moment - 10000+ majority down to 1500!!! #close
  2. THAT WOULD MAKE MY YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! Amber Rudd would suit me fine, IDS would be amazing.
  3. Lots of Labour grandees giving praise to Jezza tonight. Looks like Corbyn's Labour might be here to stay for another election cycle - so 6 months!
  4. I don't think it matters hugely what happens to the SNP. If they lose all those seats, then we end up at the exit poll with the Tories short of a majority. If the SNP re-gain some of those seats, then it makes no difference really, a couple may come from the Tories, which pushes them further from the winning post, but even if they come from Labour or the Lib Dems, it's just switching the progressive vote, the numbers stay the same in terms of Tories and opposition. If Salmond and Robertson go Indy 2.0 will be firmly off the table for the foreseeable.
  5. Can't read anything into the early results. I think the exit poll will be pretty close to bang on, John Curtice is usually pretty accurate. Even if she scrapes in with a majority, Theresa May's credibility is shot, she won't last long, that's my tip Bingo fans!

    Still not decided on my 25, every time I look the polls have changed. Think there's going to be a lot of changes too, with lots of parties exchanging seats and no clear pattern. Some are going to surprisingly hang on while others will shockingly lose, it should be a fascinating night. Or the polls are wrong (again) and Theresa May gets a stonking 100+ majority. Either way, I have around 36 hours to make my final choices...

    See, this is why I'm not very successful at deadpooling...I lack the dedication to get to the very top.

    I was going to say I'll take that but, having re-evaluated the health of a 78-year old billionaire, I'm less confident. I'm assuming my lack of 'outs' is because both Death Impends and Toast have John B. Anderson and George H.W. Bush and also have 7 hits to my 6, while Death Impends also kiboshes Lyndon LaRouche for the same reason and msc supersedes us all on Bob Dole because he has had a unique hit? Only in the Scavenger Hunt Bingo. But equally if I score another hit in any category (I'm looking at you cricketers) then I'd enter a three-way tie with Death Impends and Toast with 7 hits if Bush Sr. or Anderson go (and in so doing ruin your perfect tiebreaker ). While if the death is Windsor Davies I also tie msc on uniques! This game is fantastically bonkers. Other observations, in no particular order... 1. Wouldn't it be hilariously anti-climactic if after all this Ali wins with one of his original 6 outs? 2. Will time or Handrejka get off the mark before we have a winner? And on that note, hilariously both time and Handrejka are still only 3 hits away from winning this if they get unique picks and I count 6 of those for time and a whopping 14 for Handrejka (although I think a few are pie in the sky if I may be so bold...) This game could run a while yet. Or be over tomorrow. Oh, and finally... Yes. Yes it could.

    Maryport's Midsummer Dead Pool 2017

    I fully intended to enter as last year but alas I simply forgot. Glad you still got your full quota and that Spade failed to wrap this up even more quickly than he managed last year so we actually have a game on our hands! For the record, I may have gone with perennial tease King Michael of Romania, so I'm pleased he's represented with Grave Danger. This feels like if the Deathlist Cup went to golden goal or summat.

    This game is amazing. The twists and turns! I'm not in the picture at the moment but still rate my chances. Surely the excitement of the ICC Champions Trophy is enough to finish a couple of old international test cricketers...

    I wonder how many seats the Tories will take from the Cons..? My entry will be in at some point.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    Nothing like being optimistic eh Biblio? Kate Hollern, Labour. Local council leader who took over in 2015 from Jack Straw. Somehow failed to make an appearance in Corbyn's revolving door of a Shadow Cabinet, which is surprising given our other two post-war MPs both rose to be Cabinet Ministers. (Yes, that's right, in 72 years we've had 3 MPs...we're what you might call a "safe seat".) Looks like it'll be staying Tory this time then Spade...

    It must be most recent election to dissolution I would suggest? That's who's defending the seat in 2017. So for Richmond Park if Goldsmith regains, he gets Olney's majority + half from 2016. Otherwise it's a bit silly.

    Tell me about it. The people of Tatton are particularly fortunate I feel. Aside from the brief interlude of Martin Bell, their last three MPs will most likely be Neil Hamilton, George Osborne and...Esther McVey. Well...if you will keep voting Tory...

    Ouch. Gc's getting more than a taste of his own medicine here. However, good news for Grim or Heef - DI needs to scout out 7 more players for his semi final tie! And there's still a week to go to make it 8 or 9!

    General Election Game

    Having seen this in the By-Election Bingo, I was hoping it bear fruit. I'll be taking part. Just one question to see if I've understood correctly... Say I predict the Lib Dems gain a seat from the Tories. If that comes true, I get 150% of the 2015 majority, if the Tories lose to Labour instead I still get 100% of the 2015 majority and if the Tories hold the seat I get nothing. Correct? Sorry if I'm being dense. On the general election discussion I have thoughts I'll share...but when I'm more awake.

    Funny how this works. I was just pondering the US Presidential picks and thought that if George HW Bush or Bob Dole went it would probably push someone over the top, but I see not. It would however create pandemonium. It would leave 6 people (myself included) needing a solitary hit to win (in a whole host of shapes and forms) while also giving Ali yet more potential outs. I look at my remaining 'needs' and can quite easily see an unsurprising path to victory before March is out. Equally, I might still be waiting at Christmas.
