UK Politics

ByTheMinUKPolitics

Hello everybody, Ewan here, if you've been following our ByTheMinute Politics stories then you'll know me, that annoying socialist 13 year old that keeps waffleing on about the Tories being bad, so happy I can say that now it's 10:01pm BST. I will be covering the election till midnight, from which many other amazing ByTheMinute writers will also be covering until 8pm.

The exit polls will be out at any moment, i'm primed and ready to give you my prediction on the election as soon as it comes out! Meanwhile, Jody, will be giving us all the reactions and results from my homeland of Scotland. http://www.bytheminute.co/events/5357

EXIT POLL: HUNG GOVERNMENT HORRAH! I LOVE IT! YESSSSS! YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

CONSERVATIVES: 314 LABOUR: 266 SNP: 34??? LIBDEM: 14 OTHER: 22

TORIES SHORT BY 12

Tories survive on this - winning post is 324 due to SF abstentionism. 10 Unionists put them on the line.

I don't even care if it's a hung government... The Tories were 18 or so % up, now the average is 6% or so. Corbyn has done amazing!

50 minutes until the first the first results are due to come in! Houghton & Sunderland South.

A good point by this ByTheMinute replier, Emperor Slowking: Tories survive on this - winning post is 324 due to SF abstentionism. 10 Unionists put them on the line.

On Channel 4 the Tory experts are arguing with the Labour experts, again, May couldn't be bothered to argue.

What I find ASTONISHING is SNP, 34 Seats! What the hell is that, I thought it was a mistake! I can't believe that.

What surprises you about it? I feel sick at the thought the rest are Tory
