Scores on the Doors II

Ok there was some debate when I posted these yesterday and Rob Fenwick has made adjustments to Simon's site to make up for this debate. However, it would appear that Chris Huhne maybe hasn't had a supporter update in the last 24 hours while the other two contenders have. The current levels of public support are:

Simon Hughes 926 +266

Sir Menzies Campbell 772 +103

Chris Huhne 425 +1 (possibly due to miscount and additions not added today)


  1. I count the following (possible) duplicates:

    At least 30 on Hughes' list twice:
    Mohammed Hanif Asmal
    Jan Clein
    John Coyne
    Brian Ellis
    Joan Garrity
    John Halliday
    Lesley Hardy
    Matthew Harris
    EP Helme
    Jon Hunt
    Lawrence Hurt
    Altaf Khan
    Richard Knasel
    Jonathan Lees
    Isobel McCall
    George Molyneux
    Mark Pursey
    Jan Revell
    Paul Revell
    Debbie Roberts
    Paul Robinson
    Jennifer Sefton
    Max Smith
    Tim Smith
    Marilyn Sumner
    Nick Sumner
    Tim Symonds
    Matthew Thomas
    Joy Vincent
    Michael Williams

    (and a couple more possibles, eg "Powell Mrs E R" / "Nellie Powell"; "J (Mrs) Fisher" / "Jan Fisher"; but there is no reason to doubt the note on the site that there are two different supporters called Martin Roberts.)

    3 on Campbell's list twice:
    Colin Hall
    Graham Watson
    Sheila Clarke

    (NB also note of two different supporters both named Sarah Green)

    6 on both Campbell and Huhne's lists:
    Alan Dean
    Pambos Economides
    Brenda Smith
    John Stevens
    David Thomas
    Peter Wilson

    2 on both Huhne and Hughes' lists:
    Christopher Thomas
    David Walker

    2 on both Cambell and Hughes' lists:
    Jock Gallagher
    Rocardo Sajor

  2. While I salute your indefatigability (and evidently copious amounts of free time), looking down your list of Simon's duplicates I know I dealt with most, if not all of those duplicates this morning.

    I will however, check your list off and ensure that any genuine duplicates (ie those that are not two different people with the same name) are removed.

    It would be nicer if you could email Rob with any errors you pick up. It's not an easy job transferring over names from one site to another and then adding the new ones as they come in.

    There are only so many hours in a day so give him a break

  4. After further investigation I removed a total of one duplicate (Tim Smith).

    Every new registration is being checked against the existing list to prevent further duplicates.

  5. Gee I agree Rob some people appear to have too much free time.

    Angus fancy putting some of that to better use and telephone canvassing for Dunfermline and West Fife? We're on a roll up here and every little helps.
