Temptation Resisted

Last night was the first election night for decades when I resisted the temptation to sit up through most of the night to get the results.

I usually potter about on the Internet from about 9:30 pm onwards, going to bed a little after 11. Last night I spent more time than usual on the BBC site getting early election news, but still got myself to bed just after midnight, so this morning I'm wide awake to absorb the final results.

I wonder why my own seat of Market Harborough is taking so much longer to finish its count than did such places as Orkney and Shetland and whichever constituency now includes what used to be The Western Isles.
