Three down

And Labour are three seats up. But hardly surprising given that all three are in the stronghold of Sunderland. That said, the swing in the first two to the Tories was worrying large, although the final seat, which was the most Tory, had the smallest swing. So, more unextrapolatable results.

In other news, if the excitable media are anything to go by, there's a storm brewing in seats where people hadn't been able to vote in time. It seems harsh not to be able to vote, but it's also not clear why people weren't processed in time. The polls are open 15 hours, so it's hard (for me) not to think "didn't get your arse to the polling station in time, did you".
