Yorkshire Look North (Yorkshire)
Of course these elections are in the main only taking place in urban and metropolitan areas, and also on top of that some councils don’t count local results overnight anymore. This means that some of these regional opt outs will have very slim pickings to talk about, especially three times, I imagine most will be ‘what is expected to happen’ talk that could have been pre-recorded.

There's a by-election in Northern Ireland so they might use the opt-outs.


It's a by-election where the result is so predictable, you could bet your house on it. Sinn Féin had almost double the amount of votes the next candidate got in 2017 and the people of Northern Ireland don't really like change !

So if you're hoping for opt outs, you'll be disappointed.
