As we get to the nitty gritty of some finally tuned maths there are (it is now 6.46am) just 7 seats left to declare. 4 of these are in Cornwall which tend to be later on because it is hard to collate numbers from diverse rural constituencies.
More interesting is Dudley North – very definitely not a rural constituency and one can only assume this is a seat to close to call. Ditto the seat of Richmond Park where it has been very close in recent elections but surely Kensington has not become a marginal too? Maybe the votes got lost in a swirl of pink gins….
