Election toy

I've been creating a simple toy to visualise swing and how constituencies change hands. It uses pygame, and the data from Electoral Calculus. Anyone interested, I'll email it to you...

The dots start in their positions for one election, and move smoothly into the positions they occupy at the subsequent one. You can see, for example, Tory gains; they're the non-blue dots in the blue area. And if you hover over a dot, it tells you what constituency it is.

I plan to extend it before election night...
