    Indeed, but I suspect Brownstuff will cling on to the bitter end.

    I don't go anywhere near code so I might be wrong but isn't there a possible flaw in that code in that the government might not wait until the last possible moment to have the election and it might be earlier than 3rd June?

    started a topic Countdown to election

    Countdown to election

    For any bloggers among you here is a simple countdown until we can get Labour out thingy.

    In <head> section:-

    script language=Javascript>

    window.onload = init;
    function init()
    function election()
    var today = new Date();
    var sec = Math.floor((Date.parse("Jun 03, 2010")-today)/1000);
    var min = Math.floor(sec/60); sec = sec - 60*min;
    var hr = Math.floor(min/60); min = min - 60*hr;
    var dy = Math.floor(hr/24); hr = hr - 24*dy;
    document.getElementById("howlong").innerHTML=dy + " days, " + hr + " hours, " + min + " minutes, " + sec + " seconds";


    In body text somewhere:-

    <p>Time until we can get shot of the New Labour bastards:<br>
    <span id="howlong" style="font-size:15px; color:red; text-align:center;">Too long</span></p>

    PS document.getElementById bit is all one line
