    Hopefully Chris Roberts,Juliette Foster and perhaps Jeremy Thompson would present it.

    I dont want to see Julie,Martin,Mark,Kay or Anna moved from their normal timeslot and steal the usual late presenters show.

    I think they should do it love from Millbank. They should have JT as the anchor with a pannel of Adam Boulton and other Political Commentators. Meanwhile at Sky Centre Julia And Martin should do a Sky News Today Like Setup to interview people from across the UKs reaction. Mark should do all the computer stuff.

    With Peter Spencer shadowing the Conservative Party

    With Glen shadowing the Labour Pary

    And Jenny Percival should do the Liberals.

    Kay Burley and Anna Botting on the street getting peoples reaction.

    Then again this isn’t a general electtion – so I am probably over the top

    I think Sky News may look at it at as a Dress Rehersal for the General Election cause Its probably not that far away.

    To be honest this isn’t that big an event. Many will look at the results of these elections as a reaction to the ‘Iraq Affair’.

    Sky News will probably not use all the big hitters for the event, if only because that means the daytime will then be filled with the freelancers and stand ins.

    So yes Adam Boulton will be at the helm. No doubt Martin Stanford will do the computer graphics stuff; He is to Sky News as Peter Snow is to the BBC (or at least used to be to the BBC).

    In your forecast of the team you missed Jon Craig. I think he’s the senior of the Correspondents on the political team.

    That could be a long, old evening. Should we be letting these two ladies alone on the street in the middle of the night?

    Looking forward to seeing how Kilroy does. No doubt will be getting plenty of ramblings from him during the day. He’s impossible to shut-up once he gets going.

    The European Parliament results won’t be out till Sunday evening though, because that’s when the rest of Europe goes to the polls.

    will the UK results not come in on Thursday?

    Yep, the UK locals will start to come in on Thurs night, but they’ll drip on thru Friday, as will the GLA votes.. the Euro votes won’t be available till Sunday, as said above – but I’m sure we’ll have exit polls. By which time, on Monday, the tabloids will all be fretting over England v France in Euro2004.. so this might all turn out to be a bit of an anti-climax.. if you’re expecting something big from Super Thursday.

    It’ll be Boulton, with Martin & Julie doing the SNT routine. All four politicals will be out at various places.. a standard reporter or two will be in constituencies which are seen as representative of the whole country, getting reports from normal people.. if there is such a thing. There will be others in important places.. (‘If labour lose here, with 13,000 majority they are definately heading for a large, heavy defeat nationwide..’ or ‘Can Kilroy upset the establishment here..?!’ )

    The usual candidates will be in the studio, chatting.. Ken Clarke probly.. the bliarite loyalist (the one in Y-Fronts), the unreconstructed leftie (Austin Mitchell?), Ming Campbell & probly an occasional Green & an obligatory interview with a BNP candidate, sadly. Oh, but on the bright side – I’m sure Galloway will get some airtime – always good TV, that.

    Will they think of a reason to get Kay in the Copter?

    They used it the other day for a Dog Vs Horse race at Kempton Park – I got to see the Copter above my house, as well as the race on Sky how cool. It’s a lovely looking machine. It didn’t linger either.. 2 mins after the race finished, it headed back towards C London.. as Kay said ‘lets goto an ad break, as we all need to get paid..’

    If it was not for the Exit Polls for the European Parliament and London elections, I doubt their would be this amount of coverage on any channel.

    This is because, as has been mentioned, the London elections are not counted and announced until Friday late afternoon. The European Parliament elections are not announced till 9pm Sunday, as other parts of Europe will not have finished voting till then.

    Add to that the fact that some Local Councils will not be counting results until later in the day, and you have less materials than normal to cover. Discussion of the Exit Polls will provide much of the coverage I think.

    I presume the coverage will be Adam Boulton from the Millbank studio, and Martin Stanford with anaylsis of the results and exit polls from the newswall at the Sky News Centre.

    BTW – Peter Snow is still doing the graphics stuff on the BBC! Should be doing it on Thursday night on BBC One, and on the BBC Two European election results programmes on Sunday.

    Thursday’s coverage will be presented by Martin Stanford, I think on his own, while on Sunday there will be coverage from 8pm of the Euro Election results with Adam Boulton.
