    Can't they just end it with the current results?

    No one yet. Even when all the votes are counted, no one might have won

    Nezt to impossible.

    And impossible.

    But who knows?!
    Labour will opt for a coalition with SNP to make Alex Salmond the PM

    Do you mean the EU won't allow the UK to stop Brexit? OR do you mean getting the necessary support at home to halt Brexit would be almost impossible?

    The reasons people state for voting this or that way are just beyond ridiculous.
    "I've eventually decided to vote for Corbyn because over the course of last weeks he seemed to believe in himself more" via BBC's random public interview.
    I think it's the time for the UK to again consider proportional representation instead of these ancient shambles they have.

    She was hardly going to mention voting against gay rights was she? :-?

    In her defence, I've done it too as a kid but I've been a lot naughtier since

    Another hung parliament will be May probably wishes she'd never started this snap election.

    The Guardian is the only press I've seen be positive towards Corbyn in the last week - no surprise there. Sadly uneducated people tend to read lesser media.

    It's still unlikely

    How has her campaign been that bad? To me, it was on par with all lousy campaigns, but nothing stood out to me to call it abysmal
    It was the aesthetics of the campaign...
    • Her numerous u-turns or failure to follow through on policies like her social care plan (the "dementia tax"), fox hunting etc.[/*:m:1zcsi28c]
    • Focusing her campaign on "Brexit" instead of developing domestic policies like Corbyn promised via his manifesto.[/*:m:1zcsi28c]
    • An underwhelming manifesto.[/*:m:1zcsi28c]
    • Refusing to give interviews that no sitting PM has done in 40 years or participate in debates. [/*:m:1zcsi28c]
    • Failure to secure the future of the NHS. [/*:m:1zcsi28c]
    • "Strong and stable" [/*:m:1zcsi28c]


    And so on. For the record, I'm not saying that Corbyn ran a good campaign.

    Considering she only called this election because she was miles ahead in the polls and it was supposedly a sure thing, tonight is already a disaster.

    Even if they form a government without a majority (which is possible) her position as leader is surely up for debate.
    She's run such a terrible campaign, the worst I can recall in the 10+ years I've followed politics. To see Fallon towing the party line on the BBC at the moment is just cringe.

    I cannot get over how poorly she has done in the campaign - if she does get the majority here and retain the confidence of her party, she seriously needs to up her game.

    Either way she hasn't won by a landslide - she might just get across the finish line but she has worsened her parties position in parliament either way. She won't retain the same number of seats.
    Given that some opinion polls prior to the election closing predicted just a 1% difference between her and Corbyn, I think her losing 1 or 2 seats is perfectly expected. If that does happen (the Conservatives finishing on 329 seats - a loss of 2 seats) and the SNP perform as expected (retaining most of their seats), then Labour haven't really progressed either - so is it a disaster for May or is it a disaster for Corbyn?

    One of them is going tonight.

    If the exit polls are right, it would take the combined force of Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP to match up with the Conservatives (314-314). Which could mean that the Greens or DUP are "king-makers".

    According to the BBC, it is rumored that the Home Secretary Amber Rudd's constituency is seriously tight - it'd be horrific if the Home Secretary lost her seat.
    She deserves to lose it.
