...for the constituency of Mal's Greenhouse I hereby declare that the winner is...
Oh take a look yourself:
Here's a count of some of the ballot papers:
And here's the happy candidates.
And just in case you haven't got it yet, The parties standing are:
BLDF - Barlotti
PL - Painted Lady
SE - Scarlet Emporer
Other candidates participating are from:
PB - Pea Bean
DFB - Dwarf French Bean
DRKB - Dwarf Red Kidney Bean
Their showing hasn't been very good so far.
The votes are not all in yet so a result cannot be declared on the main issue about orientation, but the first ward to return a result is Scarlet Emporer, and the first of those to emerge was orientation "down".
I promise to give a more sober statistical analysis once the results are all in.
