Most memorable election moment

A bit of light relief from the heat of this campaign. What’s been your favourite or most memorable moments from election campaigns and election nights from the past? Could also mention personal memories of elections past.

Have to say, one of my favourites was the Prescott punch in Rhyl from the 2001 election campaign.



In one of the documentaries of Blair’s years in office, there’s an amusing clip where Tony describes picking up the phone in his office and being told that they’d just received news that ‘the Deputy Prime Minister has punched a member of the public.’’


As someone that has disliked the Tories from a young age, my most triumphant election moment came when the exit poll was released at the last election in 2017. Fully expecting a strong Tory majority as nigh on all polls were predicting, and telling myself that once I saw the inevitable I would go to bed as I couldn’t bring myself to watch the results come through as I’ve done in years past; to see Dimbleby announce May was expected to not win a majority was like watching Palace score a last minute equaliser at Old Trafford. Certainly celebrated it like it was.

Portillo in 1997 (or whenever it was). I do quite enjoy his railway programmes, though.

I'm too dim to post images and clips on here, but I remember when the Mellorphant Man lost his seat in 1997 and during his concession speech, Sir James Goldsmith (standing as an Independent) led shouts of 'out, out, out', which obviously annoyed the hell out of Mellor !

Yes Portillo and Mellor were stand out moments from the past.. any chance this can be added to with the likes of Patel and Raab at this election?

Undoubtedly contributory. I remember watching it at the time and curling up with embarrassment.

Probably not. Portillo for PM doesn’t seem such a bad an idea by comparison to the present bunch. Boris on travelogues? I could cope with that.

That ‘92 election was the last time the exit poll got it very wrong. It said it would be a hung parliament with the Tories ahead by just 3 seats. Of course Major got a majority in the end.

The sad thing about Gordon was because he was socially awkward, the right wing press took great advantage of this and let in the dim, toffy weasel from Eton that has plunged this country into disaster.

I’m sure had Gordon won that election this country would be in a far better state than it is now - without doubt.
