Yes, I know that must sound like sacrelige, but let me explain

I bought a copy of the Media Guide for the 2005 notionals and duly entered it into a spreadsheet over the course of a week expecting it to tally up a Con 210 Lab 349 Lib Dem 62 Others 29. Imagine my suprise then when the tallies came to Con 209 Lab 350 Lib Dem 62 Others 29. I naturally assumed that I had made a mistake somewhere (usually putting a Con vote in the Lab column and vice versa) and after sorting those mistakes out was left with Con 209 Lab 350 Lib Dem 62 Others 29. Now, I am putting the figures into UK-Elect (hoping to find out what the correct answer is) but fear that having tallied the spreadsheet numbers four times, what happens if UK-Elect comes up with Con 209 Lab 350 Lib Dem 62 Others 29. Do I write to the University of Plymouth and ask if they've added something up wrong?

Having entered all the results into UK-Elect and getting Con 209 Lab 350 Lib Dem 62 Others 29 I think I know what must have happened. The summary at the front of the book (Con 210 Lab 349 Lib Dem 62 Others 29) is wrong whereas the information inside the book in right.

Nope, it was me!

I e-mailed them and it turned out I'd put Sittingbourne and Sheppey into the Lab column by 22 votes, when it should have been in the Con column by 22 votes!
