Election Live: Just like Dave and Samantha

Live Blog: May 6/ 6.58pm

TWO votes for the Conservatives! Chris Philp and wife Lizzie head into Keats Library polling station late this afternoon. The street outside, Keats Grove, sums up the tug of war between the Tories and the Lib Dems in areas like this with Lib Dem stake boards clashing with Tory boards. Nobody is prepared to give an inch.

Moments before Chris went in and voted for himself (we presume he voted for himself) Ricky Gervais was spotted popping into mark his cross. I wonder what the comedian would have made of Chris and Lizzie’s Dave-and-Samantha style stroll out of the polling station, admittedly slightly staged for our local press lenses.
