The party with the most seats is given the first chance to form a coalition. If May only needs a couple of seats she will easily get them from the unionist parties in Northern Ireland. There's nothing in those poll numbers which suggest Corbyn will be Prime Minister.

I think May's poor performance, if true, should be put down to the evil, vindictive policies she has overseen as both Home Secretary and Prime Minister.

I honestly can't see these polls being accurate....but who knows?

Who would form a coalition with The Tories?





Nick Clegg will stab Tim Farron in his bed, take over the Lib Dems again and jump back in bed with them

Its just a guess right now, based on an opinion poll , not the vote counts.
Labour Majority is 20/1 on Bet 365

It's an exit poll (so they ask people who they voted for in key seats after they leave the polling stations).
I can't see Labour getting a majority at all but Labour don't need a majority for Jeremy Corbyn to become Prime Minister.


In the U.K. they're notoriously unreliable. Last time they bared almost no resemblance to the actual result. It was really quite remarkable.



The Exit Poll in 2015 had The Tories on 316 seats. The actually result was 331.

So only 15 seats out.

Yeah just looked up the past exit poll results to the actual results. The 2015 election the exit poll gave the Tories 15 less seats than they actually achieved in the end. However, the 2010 election exit poll was pretty much bang on the money!

Interesting...

They're talking on BBC how May's call for an election to gain strength might blow up in her face.

A frightening prospect....as is the thought of Corbyn and Sturgeon cozying up together.

Here's an interesting thing.
Looking on the betting site, there is money coming in for the next PM.

May 8/15 Fair enough.
Corbyn 5/2 again, I can see that.
Boris Johnson 7/1 what the hell?
Amber Rudd 20/1 again....
David Davies 66/1 ??
Phil Hammond 66/1 ??

Tim Farron 1000/1 lmao


What gets me is, who knows what? Is there some inside money on a leadership challenge or a May resignation? 7/1 for Boris looks crazy short.

That would be crazy considering Teresa May was constantly saying vote for ME.
Maybe someone put some big money on it so they lowered the odds to reflect that.

Great TV show for sure....but, thinking about it, if the Cons only manage a minority government, then May will have to resign in the morning....Damn, Boris might just be PM.

Any kids in here who havn't yet voted get up of your arse and get to the polling station.. Dont leave it to people like this guy to decide your future.


Just glad he doesn't have a dog, really.


Been there done that. When I was a kid our neighbor had a dog which would poop everywhere outside our front gate. Mum told us to take a plastic bag, scoop the poop and put it somewhere that our neighbor would know where to find it. So we put it through her letterbox
