Liam Kennedy: Why a more fundamental value than your position on Europe in this election is that of your explicit rejection of political violence 

I love general elections. This is not because I stood in two general elections as an independent human rights candidate. That, by the way, was a remarkably cost-effective way of getting a political message across as there was free postage to 33,000 households in West Belfast, all at a cost of £700-£800. In 2005, our group netted a total of 147 votes, which I am told is the highest possible score possible in snooker. Wrong game, I suppose.

General Election hour by hour: your guide to a night of political drama 

10pm: Polling stations close across Northern Ireland, followed immediately by the publication of the national exit poll. It will be announced live on the BBC, ITV and Sky News, and will offer the first clues as to how the night will unfold. At each of the past few elections, the exit poll has produced a very accurate projection of the actual result. Counting of votes from Northern Ireland's 18 constituencies begins at four count centres in Belfast, Magherafelt, Omagh and Bangor.
