    I'm not sure advance tickets will help in this case then.

    As I understand it, each person can vote for as many places as they want, but only on one occasion; that is, you can't log back in and vote for your favourite ten million times. Each vote has equal value with anyone else's vote and there is no ranking of votes. So there's no counting of second or third choices, each of the votes is treated as being a first preference.

    I make you right there and any other system would become far too complicated. It would be nice to see this resolved in time for advance tickets and cheap advance bookings at budget hotels if required. Advance rail tickets still seem to be all over the place as I can't book anything for January.

    If Newcastle O.T. to Chesterfield is the North, and Brighton to Peterboro' is the South, we have a very large "North & South!" and a very small Midlands squashed in the middle that doesn't even include Birmingham!

    Conversely I've heard Macclesfield (Cheshire) referred to as North Midlands and Oxford as South Midlands


    How could anyone tire of Geography?

    Though not infallible, I think the Wikipedia definition of what constitutes the Midlands is about as accurate as anyone's going to get: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Midlands
