Get your backside into gear...
All over the country on election night thousands of ballot boxes are opened, ballot papers counted and the result is declared within minutes of the end of the count. Give the same job for one district to the Senior Master at the Royal Courts of Justice to do and it takes two months to organise the count, and another month to declare the result. What's the matter with these people? You've seen the count take place, tell us who won... get on with it!
