Hung Up

Methinks the BBC has employed a pervert in the graphics department, or they are trying very hard to 'sex up' their election results coverage tonight.

As a seasoned election watcher, I'm pretty sure that the ongoing, on screen tally of councils won used to say CON, LAB, LD and NOC, for No Overall Control.

Tonight, the NOC has gone, to be replaced with the word 'Hung'. This will lead to some very amusing screencaps, as the word 'Hung' gets plastered over the head shots (sic) of every politician on the panel. So far, I've seen a Hung Charles Kennedy, a Hung George Osborne and, bizarrely, a Hung Tessa Jowell.
