Fellow political anoraks will like this map of the May '06 London election results.

Hackney's muti-coloured political map

Hackney is the bit with the solid black line around it. As you can see, it's mostly red but with blue, yellow and green bits. I can't help but wonder what it might look like after the next election. Especially if the voting was fair - not, of course, that it wasn't last time.

On a totally unrelated matter (there's not much relationship between what I write and local politics in Hackney!) this site will soon get its 60,000th hit. Which is pleasing - someone must be reading this crap.

If you moved Hackney due East you could be all Labour again. Mind you, then you'd probably have John Cruddas as your MP.
