Before I leave for a second longer-than-usual day at work, here's the latest post on the BBC's live election blog:
0621: Three new polls out today show how close the race is now between the three biggest parties - with only 4- 5% between them. A ComRes poll for ITV News puts the Tories on 32%, Lib Dems on 31% and Labour on 28%. An ICM poll for the Guardian puts the Tories on 33%, Lib Dems on 30% and Labour on 28% and a YouGov survey for the Sun puts the Tories on 33%, Lib Dems on 29% and Labour on 28%. A three-horse race it is then - expect the hung parliament chatter to continue.
They mentioned these polls yesterday evening (as did Michael Crick, who was almost salivating over them). Now they mention them again. They haven't done that before. I (rhetorically) wonder why!
That last sentence in the BBC post (and can't you just smell the enthusiasm in it!!) - "A three-horse race it is then - expect the hung parliament chatter to continue" - is a prediction anyone could have made, given the sheer amount of chatter on the subject across the BBC yesterday.
