I was actually incorrect to say that the scrutiny sheet I produced was exactly the same as
that in 2012.  The scrutiny sheet I produced has an extra count row because (as we
discussed and agreed on Monday) same-value fractions calculated at different points in
the overall count should be treated as separate fractional buckets.  This happens for
Bresnan in 2012 where he had received 6609 votes of fraction value 1 before Gentleman's
votes were distributed.  As we've already determined, the fractional value worked out
from Gentleman's distribution was also worth 1.  Bresnan received 804 such votes.  In the
scrutiny sheet I produced, these two sets of votes of fractional value 1 were treated
separately during his exclusion.
