no big surprise about the uk elections. however, one point of interest is rupert murdoch throwing his complete support behind labour. rumor has it that this came on the condition that blair not step down (and yield to gordon brown) before serving another full term. the back room negotiations had to be interesting, and makes one wonder how many much more media deregulation in britain will be on the horizon as a result.

on another note, my former london postcode, cities of london & westminster, voted as follows:
Conservative 47.3%
Labour 25.1%
Liberal Democrat 20.0%
