The end of a long month of electioneering
Tomorrow, in the Westminster parliamentary constituencies of Middlesbrough, Rotherham and Croydon North, voters will be electing new MP's following the deaths of the sitting MP's for Middlesbrough (Sir Ian Bell) and Croydon North (Malcolm Wicks) and the resignation of the sitting MP for Rotherham (Denis McShane) over the continuing fallout over the expenses scandal that hit Westminster in 2009. As it is very unlikely the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) will cover the results live (and that these elections will bring to an end the most dense electoral calendar in the United Kingdom for the best part of 18 years) I will be covering them myself (with the help of some colleagues of mine from other parties and none in the United Kingdom) using the Blyve service. You are more than welcome to drop in during the night (the coverage will start at 10.00pm GMT) and comment or indeed ask questions about how the United Kingdom elects it's MP's.
