Our own little corner of Stewart
Hi MontanaI've had that a few times, but I've persevered and eventually got through.Have you tried to post there?
Blogger's been a bit 'tarded for me too, but I'm getting there eventually.
Agreed, I have told anyone on the other thread to come on here instead.Sunderland has been held. Did you see all the plastic fake labour party 'supporters'.
Anyway, time to crack open the cherry beer. One bottle, not even a pint, is enough for me.Georgie Porgy Osborne looking like s smug up twat on the BBC. He has auch an awful smirk.
2nd page trouble here also. Most inconvenient not to mention annoying. Any ideas anyone?
Had some trouble but managed to beat it into submission. Using the Back button helps, then navigating by Newer/Older. Or that could be a coincidence.
I think it's probably a traffic 'issue'.It works better for me the less windows/tabs I have open.
Hank, have you found us over here? Make the trip to Sheffield, ya twat.
From Beeb:Sky News is showing footage of a dispute between would-be voters and election officials in Islington South, after dozens were turned away when polls closed at 10pm. There are also reports that some failed voters in Sheffield are blocking roads around polling stations to stop ballot boxes being removed.Sheff / MsChin / Princess - ???
Cheers, everybody. I opened up Opera and managed to get to the 2nd page easily in Opera. Don't know what difference the browser should make, but there you go.Shall we go back to the daily thread or stay here?
ThaumaI don't know what's happening in Sheffield but from what I am hearing on the news things aren't looking good. But then what hope was there of a 'good' outcome from this election?Am feeling very gloomy.
Stay here Montana. It only makes sense. I am guessing you cannot post on the other thread to tell them to come here. Oh well. I told them to come here.
The posts seem to be descending into bitching anyway. In vino veritas. Speaking of which, time to inebriate myself.
Sheffpixie,It'll be ok.If worst comes to worst, I'll open a commune/political asylum centre in one of the sheds I've been looking at buying, and you can all come here........
that should probably be worse comes to the worse!Is worst a word?
Apparently in Baghdad when there were queues at polling stations they kept them open until everyone has cast their ballot.Seems we have more officious little jobs worths running things here who think they can just disenfranchise people at the stroke of 10 o'clock than they do in that bastion of democracy Iraq..
Yep. It's a word, James. Superlative of bad.Bad -- worse -- worst.I wouldn't ordinarily do this ('cos I hate pedants who publicly correct people), but since you asked about 'worst' -- I think the phrase is "If worse comes to worst"

JamesI think its a sausage - or is that a wurst.Just heard on news that hundreds of people have been denied their chance to vote when polls closed. The Electoral Commission has said they will have a 'serious review'. Sod a serious review - a bloody major stink needs to be made, if not a proper chllenge...
Who the fuck runs the electoral commission anyway?Off to bed ... hope not to find things too dire in the morning. Fingers crossed.'Night!
Montana,Cheers.Worst just didn't sound right (even though I knew it was a proper word), but worse coming to worst sounds like it makes more sense, from an expression point of view!!(I'm a bit of a pedant too btw, and I generally fink it's important that we all speak proper and that...)
Shit, twin thread posting confusion.thauma/sheff:There was some sort of UN (?) election observer interviewed on C4 the other day, having monitored polls in Iraq and Haiti. Wonder what he’s making of all this…I always thought it was “if worst comes to worst”, though maybe “worse to worst” makes more sense.Talking of the DUP, as I was on the other thread earlier, sounds like Peter Robinson is in trouble.
Looks like Peter Robinson might have lost his seat....which would be good news.
sheff thaumbut clegg according to the bbc was in sheffield to "apologise" to those who were turned away......no doubt very consoling......not personally I would have told him to sort it out and then to take a fucking walk....
sheff: It’s official. At least he won’t be propping up Cameron.
P Robinson, first minister has lost his seat! First cheer of the night.
So here's to you Mr Robinson,. Lol.
I don't know why they let anyone vote. Just let me decide...
mish:Sounds like your idea of not letting anyone vote has already caught on in various places.Looks like it’s going to be a long, long night, and I don’t have the energy to stay up for the rest of it.Try to play nice, and make sure you tidy up and switch the lights off when you’re finished.
I've said it before but I'll say it again:http://misharialadwani.wordpress.com/2009/02/26/we-are-not-amused/
I know you're all pretty invested in the election results right now, but this just raised my hackles.Women obsessed with penis size??? Women???
Hey montana.......how's you?stopped at the point about penis bones didn't know that about primates...thank gawd for evolution.........
Lolz, at the fasicst standing behind Gordon Brown.
morning all.montana - bewildering. would have thought most women have an evolutionary interest in a man who isn't a cock, but there you go...
Has everyone gone to bed or just committed suicide? Where's the night shift?
(waves back)would quite like to pass out gently, but have guests...we are running out of booze though.
Has there been a "Portillo" moment yet?
not unless lembit opik getting canned counts.when's ed balls' constituency up?
OK, from the other side:1) Apologies to Hank. Maybe crossed wires a few weeks ago about what this place is for. Hank's one of the good guys so listen up.2) That is all.
If this farce of a so called "democratic" system institgated by the "Mother of all Parliaments" in Westminster was taken on board by a "Banana Republic" in South America our politicians would be jumping up and down and kicking and screaming at the injustice of it all and it's anti democratic nature.We are being held to ransom by corporate vultures, end of!
Is there any hope for the Hazel Blears or Ed Balls "moment"?
Ah well, back to the future. Business as usual for the neoliberal elite and screw the rest of us because we are feckless idiots. Be careful: someone has to serve the coffee!
Good morning.I imagine that Sheffield (Lib Dem) Council decided to save on paying for polling officers, leaving polling stations without enough people to run the poll properly. My local polling station had 2 polling staff; 3 booths; and 1 very small ballot box which was smaller than my kitchen bin. Not so long ago (when we had a Labour council), there were twice as many staff, booths & ballot boxes. Not a candidate in sight outside the polling station this evening, I understand. How the bloody hell my council thought that it could have 2 elections - city council + parliamentary - without enough people to run it, I really don't know. I hope the Electoral Commission savages them. I'll find out more about what the consequences of the 'serious review' might mean. And now I'm off to bed!
Hmm, confusing that the Untrustees are split between two pages.
