Election Night Drinking Game!

Surely I can't be the only person to seethe urgent need for drinking game rules this election night. I've cribbed some of these shamelessly from various intenet sources.

Help me out with suggestions below, but to kick us off:

Take a sip whenever

…a constituency changes hands
…a swingometer is used
…someone says:

"voter apathy"
"low turnout"
"war in Iraq"
"the immigration issue"
"Blair" and "liar" in the same sentence.
"concerns about the postal vote"
"key marginal seat"
"I'll have to stop you there"
"Just a bit of fun"

Finish your drink whenever

…a Lib Dem complains about being overlooked by the media
…a Tory is forced to admit they supported the war
…Andrew Marr uses more than one metaphor in the same sentence
…John Snow's computer graphics go wrong
…there is a technical hitch resulting in, no picture, no sound or some other hillarious cock up.
…someone accidently swears.
…you hear the votes called out for a Monster Raving Loony Party candidate

Do a shot whenever

…a cabinet or shadow cabinet minister loses their seat
…Veritas wins a seat

Drink solidly for the next four years if

…the Tories win

I'll add to this as the comments come in and I get ideas..

  1. Take a sip whenever a constituency is called

    All 659 of them?

    With that list of rules you'll be wasted in minutes, if not seconds!

  2. Aw c'mon, it's only a sip.

    But I prolly should revise that a little somehow..

  3. There we go, just for the constiutuencies which change parties now.

  4. Nevermind drinking for the next four years if the Tories win. How about "Take a load of painkillers and chase them with whisky"?

    It's actually 646 seats this time, but still, you'd get pretty pissed.

    Of course your enjoyment would be hightened by coming to Cholo and joining in with RaW's Election coverage live from 9pm until late.

  6. …raise a toast every time a Tory MP is unseated.

    …drink everytime there is a technical hitch resulting in, no picture, no sound or some other hillarious cock up.

    … when someone accidently swears.

    … everytime you hear the votes called out for a monster raving loony candidate.

    … down your drink when the first constituency is called – to get the evening going (Sunderland South at around 10.40pm)

  8. No alcohol did pass my lips that night. I drank coffee on a leamingtonians floor. I also cheered whenever the tories got a southern constituency becuses i a labor-hating scumbag
