Haven't forgotten about this, but have been busy. I'll post my schedule in the morning (just did the research), then the speeches.

About two hours to go. We're missing a few orders but I'm glad with how things have come in in the last 12 hours or so.

The turn is closed. The only player we missed this turn were the LibDems. I'll begin processing the turn tonight but I do not expect I'll be able to have the next turn up until Sunday night, as I'm taking a day trip this weekend.

I took some time to see how a potential Government could be formed under this projection. It's tough.

There are 253 seats on the right (Conservatives + BFP + UUP + TUV) and 299 on the left (Labour + Liberal Democrats + Greens + SNP + Plaid + SDLP). That leaves both sides well short of even a working majority, accounting for the abstentionism of Sinn Fein and the independence of the Speaker and his/her deputies, if the Government is built along left-right lines.

Change UK, with a projected 89 MPs, could support either the left, in Government with a comfortable 388 MPs, or the right, with 342 MPs.

Exciting stuff in the game, making the last half of the campaign really matter. It could go either way at this point.

Apologies for the delay, I've been very busy this week. I should be able to do my turn tomorrow.

Actually, would it be too much to request Saturday? I really haven't had the time to work on this or finish the Dance or Death turn due to a lot of pressure at work, and posting that turn is my first priority.

Good turns for many of you!

JacksonHitchcock, you seem to just be recycling old schedules for new turns, making minor changes, if any at all. This is going to hurt you, and I advise not to do so again for the next turn.

This was accudential, I use a word document to save all of my schedules and I work on them in day to day blocks so the last couple times I've been pasting in the wrong blocks it looks like. Promise it won't happen again and the penalty seems perfectly fair.

I noticed a few of your days for the last turn were duplicates, but I wrote it off as an effort to drive home the same messages.

The polls should be up by Wednesday. There is a debate next turn, so I may need an extra day to get the debate questions up. We're in the home stretch!

It's taking me a bit longer than expected to process the turn. I am working at it, though!

Lord Buckethead will make a surprise appearance at a leader's count in the Election Night thread.
