This is a note from Nick for those who’ve been asking: “It seems, however, that nominations for the Westminster elections do not close until 19 April – so I won’t be able to launch the contest until the following day! As in 2001, I will be asking contestants to predict the outcome in each of the 18 Westminster seats, and to guess how many seats will be won by the five largest parties in the local council elections which also take place on 5 May”. We’ll let you know as soon as the site goes live!
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
