George Osborne really is in his element on the BBC’s election night special. Every time Dimbleby comes to him, Osborne stresses how this is Brown’s first electoral test and if things are as bad as they look for Labour, Brown has some explaining to do. No Tory politician enjoys getting under Brown’s skin more than Osborne does.

Update: Ben Brogan predicts Labour has slipped below 25 percent, a disaster for Brown, while Sky is mapping these results onto a general election and predicting a Tory majority of 144.
