    Andrew Turner wins IoW Seat with a far reduced majority.
    (On probation mi thinks.) Rebels may strike back.
    Cameron remains PM.
    A nice little double. I win.

    Vix trebles her votes – Maybe next time madam.

    UKIP and Independent, a close call.

    Lib/Dem. Could lose deposit? Remember school fees?

    Labour. Sorry brother. Maybe when we get a LINK and more intellectuals arrive.

    Peace and quiet returns…I wonder!

    A huge turnout for my area. The first time queuing to vote. I am predicting a very strong UKIP vote but final result for Turner….. However we will all be voting again within 12 months as AT is not going to last much longer

    Of course Turner is going to win.

    There is little competition really which says a lot if all of the rubbish that’s been flying around about him is even half true.
