Yesterday I was looking around the web, trying to find out if anyone was running a sweepstake on the election – not for profit, “just a bit of fun”, as Peter Snow might say. I couldn’t. So I made one. The qwghlm.co.uk election sweepstake is your chance to impress everyone else – pick the number of seats that you think Labour will win by. Whoever gets it right will be rightly lorded as all-seeing and all-powerful, and you will have the right to brag about it on your blog for all eternity. There’s no actual prize as of yet, though I might well toss one in if enough people join in.
The code is a bit rough and ready so bear with it if it is buggy in any way. And please no spam, I’ll notice it and then block your IP.
Minor update: 12 hours in, it seems that most of the bets are between 40 and 80, even though most opinion polls have Labour consistently in three figures… do we know better than they do?
