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!
