Clacton and Heywood byelection results - Tories expect defeat in Clacton: Politics live blog - http://www.theguardian.com/politic...
Rolling coverage of the counting of votes and the results from the Clacton, and Heywood and Middleton byelections 11.45pm BST A Ukip source tells me he thinks that Peter Kellners 10,000 majority prediction for Clacton is over-egging it, but that he agrees with the Tories about turnout being in the 45/50% range. Amongst the postal votes, turnout was even higher, he says. He claims that, of the 9,000 postal votes sent out, some 7,000 were returned. A high turnout would be good for us. This has been exciting. People have enjoyed the byelection. People recognise that this is something special and that they are the focus of the country. They are quite enjoying it. There are even people who have been canvassed four times and who are saying they are not bored of this. We also think Labour thought the same too, because of the huge effort they have made. You would not have had shadow cabinet ministers knocking on doors last night if they thought they would win easily. 11.15pm BST And, while... - pb:

Readers recommend: songs about seduction - http://www.theguardian.com/music...
Dances of deception to sensual strategies, suggest your songs from the viewpoint of pursuer or pursued in this sexy topic Some people go straight for it. Was that cannon fire, or is it my heart pounding? said Ingrid Bergman to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (1942). Bang on, Bergman. I dont bite, you know unless its called for, said a rather nippy Audrey Hepburn to Cary Grant in Charade (1963). But the approach by Albert Brooks to Holly Hunter in Broadcast News (1987) is perhaps the most interesting: I would give anything if you were two people, so I could call up the one who is my friend and tell her about the one I like so much. There is something about Brookss attempt at seduction that appeals. It takes a bold step forward, but then steps back to create a tempting space into which the other person might make their move. Such are the steps of seductions dance. It also captures the essence of the seduction game how duplicity and honesty seem to go hand in hand, and how those involved...

Switzerland remain pointless after surprise defeat in Slovenia - http://www.theguardian.com/footbal...
Milivoje Novakovic penalty the difference in Maribor Lithuania edge past Estonia in Vilnius England 5-0 San Marino match report Switzerland, beaten 2-0 by England in their opening qualifier, lost to Slovenia after Milivoje Novakovics penalty gave the hosts a smash-and-grab 1-0 in Maribor. The Swiss, who were frustrated by superb goalkeeping from Samir Handanovic, were felled by Novakovics drilled spot-kick in the 79th minute after Johan Djourou brought down Kevin Kampl with a clumsy challenge. Switzerland, cheered on by a sizeable following in the 10,000 crowd, dominated from the start but Handanovic enjoyed a memorable match. Having kept out a ferocious Granit Xhaka volley early on, the Internazionale keeper parried a Haris Seferovic sitter on the stroke of half-time and then thwarted the left-back Ricardo Rodríguez as well as the midfielder Gokhan Inler.
