They say a week is a long time in politics so for those of us reporting from the campaign trail it’s sometimes felt like an eternity.
Here at SW Londoner we’ve been scouring campaign literature, doggedly pursuing candidates and securing exclusive interviews to bring you comprehensive coverage of each of the 16 south west London constituencies.
It seems that the days of ideological monoliths battling it out to produce strong single-party government have taken a back seat.
Instead a myriad of candidates from across the political spectrum have fought to the wire in a bid to secure their seats in the House of Commons.
There could be weeks of protracted backroom negotiations before we know who actually runs the country.
But before the dust settles on this highly-fought general election campaign, let’s take a look back over the last few weeks and months of canvassing.
In February we kept a close eye on Malcolm Rifkind’s former seat of Kensington after he resigned as security committee chairman and MP following the ‘cash for access’ scandal.
In March One Directioners were left bereft when the news broke that heartthrob Zayn Malik had left the band.
The general election campaign took a bizarre turn in April when the Green Party launched a campaign video featuring a cheeky quartet of their own.
We even managed to sneak in a cheeky April Fool declaring the former PM John Major was to be the face of the new Brixton Pound note which didn’t go down well with some readers… until they realised the date (and clocked the author’s name).
As the election campaign really got underway we secured two exclusive chats with Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg – the first of which branded Labour’s economic plan ‘farcical’ and urged caution against voters lurching to the right.
During our second meeting he turned his attention towards his right-wing opponents.
He praised Cabinet colleague Vince Cable while warning against the country ‘dancing to the tune of Nigel Farage and the right wing swivel-eyed brigade’.
Not content with rustling a few UKIP feathers he mocked Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith’s reliance on ‘vast private wealth and handful of charm’ ahead of the general election.
While we’ve had the opportunity to chat with the Liberal Democrat leader, tracking down David Cameron and Ed Miliband has been much trickier.
We’ve been searching high and low for any sight of Dave and Ed but sadly to no avail.
We did manage to track down Boris’ unmistakable blond mop while he was out supporting Gavin Barwell, but it’s not just BoJo who’s sprinkled some celebrity magic on the Croydon Central campaign.
Labour’s Sarah Jones welcomed actor, comedian and life-long Labour supporter Eddie Izzard on the campaign trail.
Selfie enthusiasts went into overdrive again in the marginal seat when comedian Steve Coogan dropped by to lend his support during his whistle-stop Save the NHS tour.
But it’s not all been smiles, kissing babies and photo ops.
Today we’ll be launching our live blog which will collate our exhaustive round-the-clock coverage from our 16 south west London counts.
SW Londoner reporters will be at the counts revealing immediate results and chatting to the election winners and losers.
