    Yeah that's what BBC are saying. Jeremy Vine has got some weird system.

    BBC seem to be saying that the turnout is above 80% in a lot of areas.

    Carswell despises the way Farage runs the party (claiming fake expenses etc) and his case for leaving the EU is not one based on the lines the Leave campaign have tried to run. He could become UKIP leader but I don't think the people who make up their support would particularly like him.

    I don't agree with a lot of what Carswell says but he is a good MP and a decent man.

    The pound has risen sharply since the polls closed, which probably means the City expects a victory for the remain campaign.

    ITV were quoting the turn outs at areas in the north east.

    No shock by a massive remain victory in Gibralter.

    Well Gibraltar is rather conclusive. However, hardly a great shock.

    I am just surprised that 823 people voted to leave.

    It's weakened against the dollar and static against the Euro.

    It rallied about an hour prior to them closing, but not done much since.

    Early predictions suggest a 62%/38% vote in favour of leave in Sunderland.

    It is at $1.49 - that is pretty strong

    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Think Frank is quoting a possible leaked sample for Sunderland from BBC - very different to what the mail's journalist said.

    Yes, but dropped since the polls closed.

    Like I said, it rallied prior to them closing, but not since.

    Farage trying to call it rigged.

    Sunderland was expected to vote leave. If it is that level of percentage then things might get interesting and Farage might want to re-write his speech.

    Newcastle might be a remain win. Think they were expecting a leave win there (as IDS put it "as the council estates will be voting")

    Gibraltar announces before Sunderland. A rock beats a hard place.

    It's that kind of tinfoil hat nonsense which does the Leave campaign no favours and which they've indulged in since day one. They must have been told somewhere along the line by someone that behaving in that way massively turns off a huge section of the electorate but they haven't listened.

    Given how disproportionately biased the media has been in favour of Leave then they cannot have any complaints at all. Were the media a realistic balance of how the country is made up then they'd have been called out repeatedly and early on their absolute bullshit claims and you would not have major titles fervently supporting Leave.

    Douglas Carswell really putting the boot in to Nigel Farage here.

    Called his speech about rigging bollocks. And then has attacked the poster.

    I may disagree with him, but I do like the way he is coming over. Very much.

    Thought they were expecting a 60/40 split for remain

    If its less than that for remain then would be of interest.

    Not sure I'm going to bother waiting up much more now (may just wait for the Newcastle result as that seems close) - will set the alarm for earlier than usual & see what has happened

    I think I will give it until about 1am. We should get a reasonable idea by then.

    Don't worry Parkin. You will wake up to the news that one of my jokes has been voted as the European joke of the year...
