This is interesting: -
UKIP will get 3.5m votes and 1 seat, while the SNP will get 1.5m votes and 50 seats.

Recount underway in Ed Ball's seat, must have narrowly lost it.

It sounds like your 'First Past The Post' (FPP) electoral system is past its use-by-date, and the UK should update to the NZ system (mixed-member proportional representation or MMP).

I mean the % votes between Labour and the Tories wasn't actually all that different either was it? It's just that Labour weren't translating into individual seats.

Again, I think who wins in politics has a lot more to do with individual personalities, rather than policies, especially under the antiquated FPP system.

One of the greatest slow moving wave trades in the short history of bf.

Looks like Farage will lose which I'm gutted about (the Commons would have been a better and more entertaining place with him in it).

UKIP have done very well especially given the media coverage (got precious little apart from the negative stories).

Thankful Ed Miliband has lost and that we won't be having any socialists in charge for a long time.

Well done to Cameron.

The UK doesnt seems less united than ever today
It would be ironic if the Tories sowed the seeds of a break up in this election

Will be interesting to see how different this government may be this time without the Libdems supposedly 'moderating' them.

Tbh I thought the Tories were relatively restrained in a lot of the things that they did last time compared to what the left may have been fearing, so it will be interesting to see if they go full throttle on things from this point in.

The Labour campaign was terrible. In years to come we will look back on how for some time Ed Miliband was actually odds on to be prime minister :lol:
