578  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Where (online) can I find old UK Council Election results on: September 10, 2010, 09:38:39 am
You can't.

Well, slight exaggeration. There are a couple of websites with results for very specific areas; David Boothroyd has published ward results for Westminster and Paddington since 1900 and Tower Hamlets 1964-1998, a former LibDem councillor in Sheffield has published results going back a couple of decades. There's probably more out there that I don't know about. Also, there's some stuff on wikipedia; Manchester has especially good coverage (goes back to the mid 1970s, IIRC). Newcastle used to have an archive going back to 1982 on their website, but it was scrapped years ago.

I once stumbled across a ridiculously far back local election results archive for Harrow, but I'm damned if I can find it now.  I remember seeing something similar for Wigan (or was it Barnsley?).

For results from about 1995 onwards you could always give archive.org a go.

Wigan has results going back to the 1970s.

Preston has Council Compositions back to the 1970 reorganisation. It's not completely up to date, though, er, recent events or summut....[sneeze, cough]

Are you all sitting down? Yes? Good. Because Dennis Skinner has just endorsed David Miliband.

I thought he nominated Diane Abbott....?

He did, but MPs don't have to vote for who they nominate. Skinner's decision isn't actually all that surprising; David Miliband's proposed policies aren't actually significantly to the right of the other candidates ('cept Abbott, obviously) and Skinner hates the Tories more than anyone else on the planet and obviously thinks that Miliband is the biggest threat to them. There's been a lot of cross-factional support this leadership election, which is interesting.

Ickle Ed Miliband must be somewhat angry.

I did, in the end!  Kind of....I'm at work so can't remember the exact details, but....

Eccles and Prestwich looks bonkers on a map but that's just the shape of the eastern wards in Salford
Salford Quays and Urmston (.....no, wait, Flixton? No, Urmston.....) means I cannot join Manchester with Salford at all now, but such are the sacrifices one has to make...
Altrincham and Sale West is pretty much the same as before

Wythenshawe and Didsbury almost skittled the whole thing, I think Didsbury has been split in two but can't help that.....
Stretford and Chorlton looks a bit odd, but I needed

I was at THAT LibDem Conf where Charles Kennedy looked a little tired. And emotional.

Almond Valley has a notional majority of just four votes! Why not just go for a tie and be done with it?

Yeah, all those Hindu nutters violently trying to take over a country...or those Buddhist nutters stoning rape victims....or those Shintoists burning Australian flags over a minor issue.  Roll Eyes


Why is it wrong to point out that one specific religion's nutters do 95% of the crazy religious nutter sh**t?

Because the argument is very rarely put in those terms.

So, he looks well over three hundred pounds.  Would that be accurate, since I don't know what one stone equals?

His weight was something to do with an illness, though I don't know the full details.
587  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Cyril Smith is dead on: September 03, 2010, 02:57:53 pm
He will be missed, an icon of liberal (and Liberal) politics has been taken away.

Right, it looks awful on a  map but **** it, "Manchester South and Sale" means I've sorted out Trafford.




For now....

David Amess, Conservative, Southend West

Possibly best known for somehow holding his Basildon seat in 1992 which foreshadowed the Conservative victory of that year.

Best known for "Cake", surely?

lol

Quote from: Hansard, 23 July 1996
Mr. Amess:
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action the Government propose in respect of the import of "cake" to the United Kingdom.

Mr. Sackville:

We are not aware of any reports of misuse in the United Kingdom of the substance known as "cake" but the advisory council nevertheless has under review the question whether this and a number of similar substances should be brought within the scope of the 1971 Act.



Absolute classic.

I have become really, really stuck in Trafford. There's no wiggle room at all, I'm feeling a bit trapped by the constraints.

My latest attempts are:

Davyhulme and Salford Quays - over 78k
Altrincham and Urmston - over 78k

This leaves about 41k with Stretford, Sale and....well, it has to be Manchester's western bits.

Worsley - 73k

Salford, Eccles and Prestwich WAS looking alright, until I divvied off the southern bits for the Trafford seat, so now I've got Prestwich, Eccles and....er...random bits leftover.

Manchester North East - 73k (Bradford, Ancoats, Moston, Blakely....)
Manchester East - 73k (Gorton, Ardwick, Longsight, Burnage...)
Manchester West - 73k (Hulme, Moss Side, Whalley Range, Chorlton....)
Manchester South - 72k  (Baguely, Didsbury, Northenden....)

Norman Baker, Liberal Democrat, Lewes

F***ing nutter and general skeevy creep extraordinaire. I look forward to the day when he's accused of raping badgers.

That'll be the bloke who got to the bottom of almost every scandal or potential scandal Labour were involved with then, yes?

Baker is a prized asset, he deserves a knighthood.
595  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Why 'that' topic was deleted. on: September 02, 2010, 03:54:56 am
He can be attracted to anything he likes for all I care, I'm more concerned about how he and his party are f-cking this country up.

Well, the Coalition are doing no such thing, but that's a separate issue.

I have blogged about this whole matter, follow the link in my sig Smiley
