Election Live: First shout is a Tory
Live Blog: May 7/1.05am
At the count in Chalk Farm: Slightly OTT airport style security at the door. The bonus is that we are allowed to keep our belts and shoelaces.
First person to shout me down is a leading Tory who cries: “4/1 – you could have got 4/1 to one on Chris Philp. And now see what happens.”
The claim from the Conservatives is, a possibility repeatedly discussed by the Camden New Journal in recent weeks is, that Labour and Lib Dems may have split themselves in Hampstead and Kilburn, allowing Philp a shot at the big one after all.
