Hahaha cop that Tories, smug Blairites and the right wing media establishment!



Even managed to win a seat that had been with the Tories for 99 years! Not to mention some they didn't even campaign in - which you can say is the anti-Hillary in a sense.

This seemed like a huge risk when May announced the elections. And it was. Don't see how she can stay on as PM after this.

UK General Election June 8th?

There's no path to a coalition here, right? If we use BBC's projections, Tories + LD barely clear a majority, but I assume there's no chance in hell of that happening unless the Tories capitulate into something like a soft Brexit. Labour + SNP isn't even close.

And, thank God, Tories + UKIP aren't even close.

What happens from here, folks who know U.K. politics much better than I do? Tories try to lead a minority government, in chaos by virtue of the fact that the majority of Parliament is probably anti-Brexit?

I feel like this serves the spineless Tories right for how they've behaved since roughly 2014, but I also can't stand Corbyn's Labour Party.

Don't think the Lib Dems want a coalition with the Tories, UKIP are pretty much dead in the water post-Brexit. There's a chance of another election later in the year the way things are looking.

Wow. What a ride.

Good riddance to Theresa May, frankly.

How many independents will get seats? The last one we had here it was decided on the independents, who got their 15 minutes of fame because the two major parties had to wine and dine them.
