That's brave James! Let's hope you're right!

152 Con gains

167 Lab Losses

Are the BBC steaming the footage live off of their website this evening? The TV is in a different room to the computer and I don't really want to keep running to and fro.

Yes Richard, I think they're streaming it live online :)

Con Gain 230

Lab loss 205

I won't try to guess a figure but I'm hoping there will be a substantial cull of all those intellectual pigmies and wannabe politicians who run our local politics into ruin.

If James Burdett is right it will be a marvellous night.

Conservative win 188
Labour lose 169

Con gain 323
Labour lose 171

No prize??? Not even a mug?
Well in for a penny. I'll top James Burdett.Tories to gain 290 Labour to lose 320 plus.

Tories to gain 260.

Labour to lose 160

I don't really want to guess the numbers. As long as we start to get the momentum to change the goverment in the next election. But I hope I am elected as a Conservative in the Owton Ward in Hartlepool.

Conservative gain 221

Labour lose 165

369 con gains

351 lab losses

I am going to upset people here!

The LibDems were on Iraq War high last time...many of those seats will go back to Labour.

These seats are in Labour heartland areas generally- the Conservatives cannot win many more and we run some councils there now....and not all councils are successful.

Prediction- loses for LibDems- substantial(80 losses net).
Minor overlall losses for Labour (20 net)
Conservatives - about 90 net gains.

Con gains: 275
Lab loss: 230

Con loss 100
Lab loss 130
Lib Dem gain 230

labour -25
con +75

We're at too high a base and they are at too low a base for a massacre. Libs will be interesting to watch.

Con gain 220
Labour loss 250

I think Labour's going to get a hiding from everybody this time, even the LibDems, and I don't think we are quite so automatically the people to go for as some of the other estimates above suggest...

Cons Gain 150,
Lab lose 120

Incidentally, I assume that Labour is going to come third in vote share by some margin? Anyone take a different view?

Con +89

Lab -101

How low could Labour's national share of the vote go? Is 22% out of the question? How low would it need to go to trigger an immediate crisis in the Labour Party?

Tories to gain 205, Libs to lose 47, Lab to lose 139.

Both Libs and Labour to be buffeted by the fallout. There will also be one or two milestone results of the Tories (e.g surprise council gains or new territory won)

Con + 129
Lab -97
Lib -32

289 conservative gains

315 labour losses

Conservative +142
Labour - 165
LibDems +1
Others +22

"How low could Labour's national share of the vote go? Is 22% out of the question? How low would it need to go to trigger an immediate crisis in the Labour Party?"

Well the worrying thing for Labour is that last year they were scoring 26-27% when the polls predicted about low 30%

22% might not be out the question, but turnout is everything. The good news is Brown seems to be resigned to losing by a large amount, and that will kill Labour morale.

At a wild guess:
Conservative 41% +100
Labour 30% +110
Liberal Democrat 20% -220
Green 4% +20
BNP 1% -15
UKIP 1% +5
Other 3% +0-

Conservative Party gains-167

Labour Party loses-152

Liberal Democrat Party loses-75

UKI Party gains-17

Thanks all. Average of all 35 figures above is 182.

Conservatives +200
Labour -120
Lib. Dems. -25

The Liberal Democrats actually seem to be making modest net gains which is very surprising.

It looks like a toss-up between me and James for closest at the moment...

So it seems Andrew, Although according to Sky I'm about 80 out on Labour and about 20 out on us.

BBC has Conservatives up 252 (so me fractionally closer), Labour down 310 (so you much closer).

My guess is that you'll have it in the end.

Andrew - I'll share the non-prize!!
