Six of the Best 91

Nick Thornsby's Blog reports exciting news: Oldham Council has given him media access to the special election court that is sitting in the Oldham East and Saddleworth constituency this week. Nick writes: "This is the first time for nearly 100 years that a case of this sort has been brought about with relation to a Parliamentary election. It is set to be fantastically interesting, and the outcome will almost certainly have consequences for the conduct of future general elections. My reporting will obviously be subject to the usual restrictions and rules placed on any reporting of court cases, but I hope to blog as much as I can, particularly with the details that might not make it into the reports of the mainstream media."
