Secretary-General of the United Nations at the first opening.

Sadly I could very much see that as a solid potential.

It is (pretty much) unwritten rule that candidates from the "big" nations (a.k.a the Security Council permanent members) are not even considered.

As convention says Speakers are not opposed by mainstream parties, handfulls of randoms and allsorts are found on the ballot.  This was also pre-Register of Political Parties, so names like "Independent Labour" were allowed.

592  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

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.
