Disastrous exit poll for May and Tories.

Tell us more, Andrew.

From Twitter.

Exit poll: HUNG PARLIAMENT Tories – 314 (-17) Labour – 266 (+34) SNP – 34 (-22) Lib Dems 14 (+6) Plaid – 3 Green – 1 UKIP


Many people who registered to vote in the last few months and who had been given a voting a card found they could not vote when they arrived at the Polling Station.  I moved house a year ago, and had updated my address, but this fact was not acknowledged on the Electoral list at the Polling Station when I arrived there this morning.  I had to go back to the place I used to vote before we moved to be able to vote there.  I was told by the officials in attendance that they were still using a list of electors which was from last year, as if that was all OK by them.  This tends to confirm the reports of people, voting for the first time, being turned away and not being allowed to vote, even though they had a voting card, and were registered.

    If true a Lib Dem/Tory coalition looks most likely. A majority of 3! I wonder which seat possibly went UKIP?

  2. NPP says:

    BBC 1 says no UKIP, otherwise BBC 1 a bit surprised.
    Crane says Lab-Lib-Dem-SNP would be nightmare.

    Strap yerself in!

    BBC rumour Hastings Tory in trouble… Crane mentioned watch Hastings.

    I’ve never seen so much emphasis on ‘exit polls’ since before the last election.

    Seems a bit like mental conditioning to me, the incessant “Tory, win, Tory win, Tory win”.
