He had low turnout, the order right on 1st prefs but a little out on %s, he called the elected order for Nicholson and Dodds right though he thought Dodds would be on 4th count.

Any complaints will be dealt with in the normal manner – they’ll be ignored.

frustrated democrat – drop me or Mick a line with your preferred method of payment. Hopefully next time we can get a better prize and thanks to all who played.

  • Congratulations frustrated democrat!

    Lets hope democracy is less frustrating from now on

    Well done FD. Guess we’ll all have to pay you some attention from now on

    Well done frustrated democrat 😉

    Eh any ideas for the 2.30 at Sandown Park or anywhere else that could yield a tidy sum ?

    Democracy maybe frustrating but it sure beats the alternatives from what I’ve seen.

    Thank you all for your kind words, I would also like to thank my mother, father, wife and children, the pin I used to select the order, the computer keyboard that I used to type it with apologies to anyone or anything I left out who contributed to this unaccustomed but magnificent success.

    Horses not so good at and useless at the lottery, but back the CU’s for 2+ seats at the next election and the TUV for 1+ remember you heard it here first!

    Can you please donate my excellent prize to the Slugger kitty, where would we all be without it?

  • Mark McGregor

    Frustrated Democrat,

    You are a gent, in addition to victorious. £25 on its way to Mick courtesy of you.

    Thanks and well done.

  • Chris Donnelly


    Well done, but you forgot to ‘thank the Academy…’

    What about my post as detailed below? – posted several hours before the actual count started?

    Though, to be fair, I suppose using Tallies to do this could hardly be counted as an actual pure prediction!!

    Actual Prediction taken equally from over 1,900 Tallies across all constituencies is as follows:

    Agnew – 2%, Allister – 15%, De Brun – 26.5%, Dodds – 17.5%, Maginness – 15.5%, Nicholson – 17%, Parsley – 6.5%
