Ours was still busy this evening when I stopped off to vote on the way to work.

Tempted to mess up Chris' poll by falsely saying I voted for Plaid :lol:

Similar to farnboroughrob's experience, most of those I saw were 40+ ...... most of the crumblies ( sorry....OAPs ) voted this morning, so unless they voted this afternoon you have to wonder what happened to the younger voters.
I'd still be surprised if Welsh* Labour's 'AMMM' doesn't get in as usual, though.
(* Welsh because the Labour Party here have spent most of their time trying to distance themselves from 'Corbyn's Labour' )

Much the same at Blunden Hall, UKIP chap in a linen suit looking like he was off to be High Commissioner somewhere in the Empire outside!

Reports of students being turned away from polling stations across the country despite being registered after their university addresses weren't recognised. This stinks to high hell

Exit poll on Radio 5 has the Conservatives winning, but losing a lot of seats & failing to get a majority ( short by 12 seats ) with the SNP losing a lot of seats to Labour.
We shall see.

I voted this morning at about 7:30. There were several people in the polling station, mostly electoral staff etc.

Throughout this whole campaign though, we've not had a single leaflet / campaign material through the letterbox, or a single knock on the door from a campaigner - not that I like talking to them that much I do find that a little "surprising"

We'll be back at the polls within 6-12 months if there is a hung parliament - the absolute worst outcome anyone could ever think of...

If I'd known, I could have sent you some of mine, as we've had loads over the last week....ditto the 'door knockers' & phone-calls :lol:

Be interesting if the exit poll's correct.....would the Conservatives try to run a minority government, and if not who would they form a coalition with this time ?
Same with Labour, Corbyn has previously said he wouldn't form a coalition with the likes of the SNP......or would it be a case of 'needs must' ?

BBC & others reporting that Gideon Osborne's been saying he thinks the Conservatives will lose even more seats than the exit poll is predicting.
Again, we shall see.

Disastrous exit poll for T. May.

Lot of people saying that the Exit poll was almost the same (+1 seat) for the Tories in 2015 and they managed a small majority.

May be so, May could still wrangle a majority (or it could, indeed turn out to be a landslide); but that's not the point. May has positioned this to consolidate her majority. a tiny majority will not be good enough for May.

If exit poll is true, IndyRef2 would also appear to be dead in the water...

( updated as it goes ) Seats :
Lab : 256
Con : 302
SNP : 34
DUP : 10
Plaid : 3
LibDem : 12
SinnF : 7
Independent : 1 ( in NI )
0 for everyone else.

Clegg gone, Angus Robertson gone, Alex Salmond gone....unfortunately Rudd & 'Loathsom' are still there.

Apparently at least 2 bookies have Corbyn as evens/odds-on to be PM :shock:

And there's a full moon tonight.
Just saying, like.
:biggrin:

I wouldn't say so strongly, there has been a lot of tactical voting north of the border.

The ones interviewed on Radio 4 & 5 have mainly said that it's down to the youth vote in Scotland & that the youth are fed up of the SNP's 'one-track campaign'

So.....which Tory MP is going to do a Casca on May, then ?
Bo-Jo seems to be the prime candidate.

Nice to see May's got a face like a slapped haddock during her speech when she retained her seat :biggrin:

One seat left to declare in Wales ( another close-run one with multiple recounts )......so far, the Cons are down 3 ( all to Lab )...Lab got 50% of the vote share in Wales, Cons got 34%
Two seats left to declare in Scotland.....so far, the SNP are down 21, Cons up 12, Lab up 6, LibDems up 3
22 seats left to declare in England.....so far, Cons down 20, Lab up 19 & UKIP have lost their only seat.

25 seats left in total to declare, with the Cons needing 24 of them for an overall majority.

Unless the Shinners play a blinder ( after all, they're supposed to be Corbyn's mates according to the media ) and actually take their seats this time :lol:

May has to go.

She called this needless election for purely political reasons and should resign. If you're a Labour supporter you'd probably wish her to stay as she's more of an asset for your party.

Inept, hapless, clueless, weak, wobbly - I'm sure there are other words you can conjure up. She is simply not fit for the office.

As for Labour - Corbyn's common touch and sensible policies show that despite the full onslaught of a disgraceful right-wing media that could stoop lower than a hunch-backed snake has shown there's an appetite away from the austerity 'hard-Brexit' Tories.

They seem to prefer to not vote, disagree with the choices of those who do utilise their vote and then demonstrate their unhappiness at the outcome by going to London and fighting with the Police whilst attempting to smash shop windows.

Obviously - some of them can't even be bothered to do that! They'll just moan about the election outcome on Facebook/ Twitter and set up a petition demanding the election they choose to not take part in is re-run in the hope of a result they find more acceptable. And then go for a cry in their university designated safe space!

My constituency stayed 'blue' with the Tory candidate winning more votes than all the opposition but together so I'm alright, Jack.

Largely, I agree.

May called an election for political reasons as well as reasons of personal vanity and has been given a kicking, worst of all by a toxic and tainted Labour, which speaks volumes for just how utterly abysmal May is.

Running scared from live debates, refusing to meet real people, absolute crackpot policy decisions (the foxhunting question irreparably damaged the campaign from the outset, even among Tory diehards), and the "Strong and Stable" mantra became a joke and a noose round her neck.

And so we're left with an even more divided country, where the right and left actively despise each other, and there is no common ground. Brexit is the bastard child of this mess, which will anger half the country however it turns out.

Just think, if those 18-25s had voted 12 months ago there'd be no Brexit and a decent man and natural leader still in Number 10...
