Clarification today on the number of invalid entries on the Mayoral Referendum petition.
4736 signatures were submitted, but only 3808 were valid. The threshold of 3887 was not then reached, and the petition was 79 names short. The confusion seems to have arisen as some names were invalid for more than one reason. The report to the special Council next week has been re-issued.
There's been some fairly excitable speculation both here and on the Liar about the likely outcome of next week's vote. I intend to blog at the weekend on how I intend to vote and why.
