Blamerbell at the Beeb...

So, I'm sitting here in the semi-outside with Joe Allen. There's loads of booze opposite me, which is great as it's my birthday. Problem is it's from the Pobl y Cwm set so it's probably fake.

Word in the Beeb is that turnout is variable (whoaa, revelation), but probably very high in the hyper-marginals. There were queues this morning at one polling station in Newport East, apparently. Did I say polling station? I meant family planning clinic.

Elsewhere, it seems it's a straight race between Plaid and the Tories in Aberconwy and there are whispers that Labour are already lowering the bar about what constitutes a 'defeat' tonight.

Guto Thomas has just joined us. Suddenly it smells of chips.

Don't go away tonight chaps. Still to come I've got five minute quizzes, predictions and much more anoraky madness.

Also, if you've got any gossip from counts or the inside, do get in touch. Email me: blamerbell[at]

Adrian Masters has just come by to tell us he has a dressing room, for the first time ever. And a bowl of fruit. He's just taken a photo of us anoraks with his mobile phone. That probably makes him geekier than us.

UPDATE: Some of you have requested a list of all the bloggers intending to live blog tonight. Joe is currently working on this and it will appear on Wales Elects shortly.

I encourage you all to get blogging tonight. If you've never blogged for, start now. Email me or post a comment to let you know what you're up to and join in the parade. It's YOUR chance to shine. Otherwise come along and post in the comments here. I figure that's the only way we're all going to stay awake.

WHISPERS: Just come back from makeup where I bumped into Lembit Opik, Elfyn Llwyd and Kevin Brennan. Lembit was the only one who hadn't heard the Lib Dems were talking up Newport East. Elfyn Llwyd says Aberconwy will be very very close. Tried to get him to call it 100% but he refused. Wanted to ask Lembit if his girlfriend's twin was free for a drink tomorrow night. Decided not to push my luck.
