Britain goes to the polls
After a month of talking about little else, it's almost time for us to put our election coverage on hold. While the polls are open, the BBC's various outlets won't be covering any election-related issues. That includes our blogs. Here's the official line:
In line with the political parties and other UK broadcasters, the BBC will not be reporting the election campaign or offering discussion about the campaign while the polls are open on May 6th on any of its outlets. Our messageboards and many blogs will remain open on Polling Day, but we ask all users to refrain from discussing the election while the polls are open. Usual BBC House Rules will resume once the polls are closed after 10pm on May 6th. See the guide to the special election house rules for more information
That means we've had to close the comments sections on some of our election-related entries on this blog. But they'll re-open after the polls close at 10pm.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!
