The people have spoken. What did they say?

Well the polls are closed and the people have spoken. It will be a few hours before we know what they said (and probably several days until we work out what the bloody hell that means) but here at Ipswich they’re busy verifying that the number of votes in the ballot boxes is the same as the number of votes issued. That should be finished by about 1.30am and then we’re expecting a result some time after 5am.
