If you live in central London and are thinking of making the effort to go out and vote on May the 5th then don't bother.
At least that's the advice (sort of) coming out of the Electoral Reform Society. According to the BBC the five parliamentary constituencies in London are a foregone conclusion.
So the result should be (look away now if you don't want to know the score):
Labour: 3 | Conservatives: 2 | Liberal Democrats: Sweet FA
Not surprisingly the Lib Dems are quick to remind us that "Londoners must never underestimate the power of their vote".
We'd like to add that with great power comes great responsibility. But if the idea of great responsibility is a little scary then please remember that fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering.
How will Londonist be voting in the face of this shocking news? We're hoping that there's an old movie on TV that afternoon. Something with Leslie Phillips and James Robertson Justice would be good, but we'd settle for a Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes.
