So, the local council website's election page has crumbled under the no doubt enormous load of people trying to look at the results. And yes, Java and Apache Tomcat.

Lots of 2 member wards with one LibDem and one Tory - people obviously punishing the LibDems for going into a national coalition with the Tories by, er, voting Tory.

In the one ward I looked at before the server crashed (ours) I see that that first Tory and first LibDem in alphabetical order were elected. If only Aaron A Aardvark had been persuaded to stand. (The null hypothesis has got to be that a decent number of people voted for the Green or the Labour and one LibDem).
