BoJo has shortened now from 7/1 into 13/2 there is some decent money coming in for him it seems..

WOW.

ETA DD and Phil Hammond both in from 66/1 to 20/1


Anyone but Phil Hammond. He is the most loathsome man in the Tory Party. Which is really quite impressive when you think about it.

I thought it would as this is also a vote on the type of Brexit we get.

Pound to dollar it went from $1.295 to $1.2704, so not a massive drop really. I'd keep an eye on it overnight though, when the results come out.

Newcastle exit poll said Labour should have had a 7% swing.

The actual vote gave them a 2% swing so it could be good news for the Conservatives.

Is there somewhere which keeps a tally of the votes cast for each winning party at each seat? It's how many people cast votes for which party overall that will also be telling.

IF may wins its going to be a sad day.

Really says a lot about the state of the British electorate voting for a woman who wants to adopt a "dementia tax" or continue to further privatise the NHS while cosigning up to the Trump.


I have to say, with the massive cost of care homes of a decent quality for people with dementia and how long those people live for, its kind of reasonable for people to pay out of their estates for the care they receive. Hell, the NHS is a money pit already, where else are we gonna get the money from? (And care assistants also deserve more than minimum wage)

I don't think its wrong to use everything above 100,000 pounds to help cover the costs. No matter how much the care costs, that's still £100,000 to leave to your kids.


Not everyone has a big house worth £250K, and those prices are high just because property has been treated as stocks
due to the fact that the UK just doesn't do mass transportation right. If we did transportation right, it should be easy to get from any two points that are the same distance apart in the same amount of time regardless of where you live. Then prices would be more even. But because of the limited options in London, large Victorian homes are being bought up by buy-to-let landlords and rented out by the room. That just creates an even bigger shortage of homes. The prices then get set by how long your commute is.

Which areas are uncertain to which way they're going to swing ?

Do they have the potential to determine a majority government ?

Just curious.

Sunderland Lab hold

Conservative vote up to 12000 odd from 7000 !


Exit poll predicted a swing from Con to Lab of 3.5%

The actual swing was 3.5% from Lab to Con.

Despite all the predictions being aired on TV I still think The Tories will end up with an overall majority, maybe not as much as I previously predicted.

If so then hopefully we'll have a strong opposition who will hold the government accountable and keep them on their toes.
Probably the worst case scenario would have been an absolute avalanche in favour of the Conservatives.

If it stays like this then May is out.

She has to win with a majority.

It is just to early though to really say how things are going one way or the other

Yeah, the exit polls, were too optimistic for Labour based on these two seats. The Tories did much better which has a bigger meaning when it comes to the contestible seats.

Apparently 25% of the vote was cast by post, which will affect the polls. The pollsters are using past performance to account for postal ballots in this election.

BBC guy saying that if the exit poll is as wrong everywhere that it has been in Newcastle and Sunderland, the Conservatives are looking at a majority of 80 to 100.

The more moderate chap says 30-40.

Quite a volte face
