Iain Dale & Hopi Sen - Live election results broadcasts 5th and 7th June

Mrs Rigby doesn't for a moment imagine she's a political blogger, she just has a few things to say. She has however she read that Iain Dale is asking people to advertise this
. :-

She decided that every little bit helps but is bloggerly challenged and can't manage to get it to fit into the side bar, so is uploading it as part of an ordinary blog post.

His message today (not quite the same) says
As you may know, on Friday and Sunday I will be hosting two marathon election results programmes on, with Hopi Sen as my co-host.

Obviously we'd like to let as many people as possible know that these programmes are happening, especially because the BBC is not doing a live results programme for the county council elections on Friday, and only a three hour programme on Sunday.

And if you'd like to help us on the day by providing us with news from counts, gossip or comment that would be great. We want to make this the first meaningful election programme staffed entirely by citizen journalists.

We’re interested in receiving as much information, results and gossip from you as possible throughout the course of the day. You may be at a count, or have picked up some into from friends and colleagues, or even from blogs and websites. We want it all fed into us in our live election studio. You can do this in a variety of ways.

If you want to appear live on the programme call 01243 556161. Obviously we can only take one call at a time so you may have to wait a bit, but don’t give up!


Dial up . We can take Skype calls, and also Skye chat messages.


You can use my twitter name @iaindale, and it will appear on my Tweetdeck app, or you can use the hashtag #electionstudio. The hashtag is probably best.
Mrs Rigby can't understand why BBC isn't broadcasting live, these are really important elections. But she doesn't understand a lot of things the BBC does these days.
