Don't think we were ever close to something like that happening Adders LOL

I think the best I can hope for is a Hung-Parliment, at least then everyone will have an input haha...though surprisingly i've not heard anything about changing the system this election...it usually pops up every election about changing from FPTP to Proportional Representation.

So voted UKIP. Yes I know it's more or less certain they won't get in but if everyone has the attitude it's a wasted vote then it's 100% certain they won't, every vote still counts and I can go away with the peace of mind that I went with the party who's policies I supported the most.

I couldn't bring myself to vote for Labour led by a guy who thinks the answer to terrorism is to make them a cup of tea and give them a hug. Conservative just seemed to be too focused on the wealthy rather than the working class for me.
I liked a lot about the Green Party but their hippyish lovey dovey views on what to do about terrorism and immigration and the fact they are adamant about staying in the EU even though it's already been decided we are leaving put me off.

The Green Party usually have a very good manifesto, unfortunately not many people will vote for them, which is a shame. I don't have a GP representative in my area but if I did it would be interesting.

Plus what I would say is don't vote for the leader, vote for the manifesto but each to their own. I don't particularly like any of the leaders and I think we'd all be better off without them but that's another story haha.

Baz ya stalker I told you owt could happen lol.

Saw in paper that 70 odd percent of over 60s vote Torys and 18-24 Labour.

Doing that here means young voting for an old MP and older voters voting for a young MP. You'd think generally people would do what I did and vote for someone of similar age.

Almost guaranteed that my MP will be Tom Watson, voted green personally.

If the exit polls are true May will be gone sharpish, well worth dropping a tenner on Boris for next tory leader, possibly worth laying against Gove.

May has to resign if she doesn't get a majority.

She didn't have to call an election, changed her mind about it being arrogant expecting a landslide and now she's getting a rude awakening.

It's screwed exchange rate for those planning on going abroad.

Tories have lost their majority. SNP been battered in Scotland, so could we see a Torie lead Co-Alition or will May want to lead a hung parliament and hope for the best?

I voted Labour, no secret there. Labour won in my area, and had 57% of the votes. We had a 62% turnout too which is high for us. Also UKIP lost 15% of their votes in the area LOL

Well I voted SNP and they held the seat. The wealthier areas of scotlandbket some cun....i mean Tories and Labour candidates in. But a hung parliament is a fair result, the Mutant May will have to resign now. Dunno if people will be happy with another Cun....Torie led coalition but we will see going forward.

But Corbyn did alright though all them gains.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

A possible Tory/DUP will be utter chaos. DUP don't want an official Co-Alition...they want some kind of vote for vote thingy...and given what i've read about these guys...they'd probably screw the tories over to get their own way haha....that's not to mention May probably being screwed over by her own party at times.
