Meanwhile, back in Blighty, how is all of this being covered on the News Channels and Mains? Is College Green once again a hive of activity?
On BBC World, Karin Giannone is anchoring LIVE from Delhi for the India elections. I’d imagine the UK story is starting to surpass even that!
The UK story will be resolutely silent until 2200 BST as the polls have opened for European Elections. Today's news will be anything non political so India's elections could certainly see some coverage. Today's the sort of day when packages that are more likely to get dropped on a normal day have a much lower chance of being dropped.
I'd expected this, but they're covering the PM's departure - at least on Newsbeat, and online. I didn't think they could report on political stories on election day.
Election Day reporting restrictions apply only to the election itself. You cannot report much in the way of details regarding the election itself, beyond how turnout is being reported, and if certain politicians have turned out to vote. On general election days, there's little happening in Westminster anyway, so there tends not to be much political reporting on those days anyway.
This election day is a little different, not only because of the ongoing Brexit situation, and the Prime Minister being under immense pressure to leave number 10, but also because, it's the first of 4 voting days across Europe. The Netherlands is also casting its Euro election ballots today. Most of the continent votes on Sunday, but Ireland votes tomorrow and a couple of countries vote on Saturday. In all those countries, national and local politics still carries on, but extra care is usually taken with regards to fairness and accuracy when it comes to reporting political stories during a European Election.
