Finchley & Golders Green – Labour hold

Oh man, I have totally loved this – after all the disappointments of earlier in the evening, to know that in my own constituency, Labour had held off an expected Tory gain, fills me with utter delight.

I spent five and a half hours insulting and abusing the Tory party, in front of my Tory-voting flatmate, and to finally have this, not justified or vindicated, but somehow confirmed by the loss of the Tories in Finchley.

I called my dad up, to spread the news – he already knew, and told me to set fire to my conservative housemate's wardrobe —- \0/

Life really rules right now.

Of the remaining seats to be announced, I desperately hope that the Lib Dems take Cambridge. COME ONE, etc.
