The tradition of politicos that gave us the famous quip ‘Were you still up for portillo?’ is under threat by new voting laws. New requirements to check postal ballots could mean a shift to next day counting. First the swing-o-meter goes now this! It wasn’t like this in my day ye know etc etc….
I was up for Portillo and it was memorable but the bigger memory [Editor: fuzzier surely] was four friends and I drunkenly celebrating Chris Patten’s defeat in 1992 much to the annoyance of neighbours. Any other election night memories from the political nighthawks out there?
