election night

fell asleep at 4:30 without getting a chance to see George Galloway take Bethnal Green and Bow for 'Respect' his new party born of the anti-war movement and denounce Tony Blair in his speech.
They came second in my constituency from nowhere, but Labour got more than half the votes as usual.
A doctor running as an Independent on a 'save our hospital' ticket and a Welsh Labour party renegade running against the official candidate, a woman selected through positive discrimination, both won seats.
Apart from that, Liberal Democrats didn't do as well as I had hoped, neither New Labour or the Tories did as badly as I might have hoped, disappointed but not really surprised.
