6:34PM - Perky/Cybergoth Coalition Gotherment condemn Terror attacks

The Prime Perky announced that the recent terror attacks against London indicated that the War against Boredom was going well. Clearly Al Queda have been scared by goths ignoring them into striking out against British Goth but have spectacularly failed to achieve their objectives as no goth clubs were closed as the result of the attacks. The Prime Perky urged every goth to go out and enjoy themselves as the best way of defeating any enemies of gothic freedom.

Meanwhile the Habitation Secretary (the leader of the Cybergoth party) said this cowardly attack had failed to scare British Goths in anyway at all. The Habitation Secretary said nevertheless it was time to step up progress in the Gothbot program, which was already planning and starting to build Giant Monster Robots to defend British Goths. Habitation Secretary further stated: “Our Giant Monster Robot programme is the envy of the world. Soon we will have robots carrying human pilots plus we are working on advanced AI so the robots can function independently. We have a vast number of cybergoths willing to pilot robots to defend the Goths of the UK.”

Meanwhile the official opposition the Deathrock party’s DeathShadow Cabinet stated that those responsible for the attacks were utter bastards. Much gothlamentary debate was held over whether those responsible should be given a stern telling off and have their toys confiscated, be impaled, hung drawn and quartered, locked in a British Prison, or handed over to the Americans.

The DeathShadow Minister for Death however questioned how exactly giant monster robots can stop people placing bombs in the Tube. He also reiterated his demand that a secure committee of the Gothlament should be allowed to review progress on the top secret Gothbot programme as soon as possible, especially on its massive budget. According to rumour the gothbot programme is over budget and behind schedule.

8:15AM - Electoral Crisis - Referendum called!!!

A statement from MGA has revealed that after experts worked through the night they discovered that a significant number of votes in the election came from newly created livejournals with no entries. It seems these journals were created with sole purpose of altering the election result. The full of extent of this problem is not yet known but an investigation is ongoing. The following journals so far have been identified as suspicious being created around the same time some with the same email address:

7:03PM - Goth Election Crisis - Smiley Ballot Challenged

Recounting of the fifty-four paper and email ballots have now been completed and all are deemed valid except one. This one ballot has been challenged because it has a box marked with a smiley rather than with X or a tick. Tradgoth lawyers believe a smiley face does not indicate an exact intention and it could be a random doodle, and as the ballot calls for a X in the box of the party selected a smiley is in fact a spoilt ballot. The Corpgoth lawyers on the other hand claim that a smiley face obviously shows a direct preferance for the party indicated. Further legal adjudication has been called for. One vote however cannot effect the total results either way.

9:30PM - Complete Election Results

Here we are outside the Gothlament buildings at Blackhall in Whitehall in London. A huge crowd of Goths of all types have gathered to hear the election results being read out. There are banners of al types around saying: “Down with the Perkys! We want real GOTH!”, one huge silver banner in binary, another demanding Free Blood and so on. Wait a second, it looks like the Registrar is about to speak from the balcony:

“As duly appointed Electoral Registrar for the General Goth Election it is my duty to announce the following results for the Gothlamentary elections of May 2005. A total of 713 votes were cast and the total results were as follows:
