Election live-blogging post 5.
06:35 LibDems hold Bermondsey & Old Southwark (Simon Hughes), and Sheffield Hallam (Nick Clegg)! Majority for Nick Clegg is doubled, to 15,284. 6.9% swing from Conservative to LibDem :)

06:43 ARGH GITFACE ON THE TV.
Paxman: How much of your own money did you spend on your campaign?
Goldsmith: "It's not about money" - no, that's how come you bought 500 matching jackets for your team to wear! And that's the smallest thing I know of. Great, so you were elected an hour ago, and you're lying to us already.

06:45 LibDems gain Wells from the Conservatives. The incumbent MP was highly implicated in the expenses scandal, having spent £30,000 of taxpayers' money on manure!

06:58 The LibDems lose Camborne & Redruth to the Conservatives with a majority of 66 :o Seems that every seat we gain is balanced by a loss.

It's all gone rather quiet. Wondering when to go to bed. Waiting for 66 more seats, which could make all the difference between a Conservative majority or a Lib-Lab coalition :X

Now that's democracy in action!

(End peanut gallery.)
