That Cross-Broadcaster Disparity In Full

Yes, we’re a bit slow on the uptake, but we’ve just thought of putting the web stream of ITV’s coverage up on our second monitor while we watch BBC One on our proper telly. This means that for the first time ever, we’re actually watching ITV’s coverage of the election results! Yes, you’re right to look surprised and astonished, it ACTUALLY DOES EXIST. It’s not an urban myth!

So, while BBC One are reporting:

image Lab: 3, Con: 0, Lib: 0, Others: 2, ITV are running with

image 8 seats to Labour, and 4 for other parties. That’s thanks to their policy of peering over the shoulders of people at the counts and reporting results as they’re announced, which is ALL WRONG, but still. Physical evidence that ITV do run live election night coverage.

This taken at precisely 00:43, by the way.

Erk. The first shot looks like a scene from the Z Snyder remake of Dawn of the Dead; the second invites the caption, "No, Mr Bond, I think you shall find it is you who -- Oh, he's escaped with a cufflink."
