Oh yes LOL. I got confused with the seat predictions.
Good thing with being a tiny party is that if those predictions are correct, we will double our seat share which is a great success! Small party, small expectations.

The Greens currently hold only one seat in Brighton Pavilion, by the 2014 MP of the Year, The Hon Dr Caroline Lucas, first ever leader of the Green Party.

It's in the exit poll by the BBC that says the Greens will​ have two seats, possibly Bristol West?
Yeah I corrected myself in another post haha x)

I wonder what the other seat they are predicted to gain is.

I didn't even see you make a prediction in your post, jeez I'm blind.

I heard #votegreen was trending all day in Bristol but the pollster said that it could be any of our 3 targets.

It's indeed be quite interesting since I don't think anyone really expected the Greens to win a second seat. The focus was more on getting that 5% vote share nationally.

Do you reckon the Greens will have managed to hold onto Brighton Pavillion, then?

If they are left with only 10 seats, it'd be quite obvious that from a vote standpoint the coalition has harmed them greatly. If they continue with it, it's likely that they'll fare even worse.
Well the voters that were left voted for them despite going into coalition, I doubt they'd turn against them the second time around. And you're not taking into account that the Lib Dems were the protest party of the left in 2010. Their core vote remains actually liberal supporters. Furthermore, last time it was a choice between helping labour or Tories. This year it would be the choice of a Tory government with their voice, or a Tory Party propped up by populist and loony parties.

Yes but my point is another coalition is unlikely to help them rebuild the party, whether voters turned their back because they were on the left or now they vote Con because they don't think there's any point voting LD.

That has been very consistent throughout all the polls though it's a battleground seat.

Labour was second in 2010, not the Liberals. But both Lab and Lib are having new candidates.

I believe it's a Labour target seat.

I cannot at Ed Balls doing damage control on ITV. He looks like he's going to cry.

There's no reason why it would hinder them though.

Perhaps, but as is it a battleground seat, there is still a small chance it could change to labour, or even tory.

Results for Sunderland Central in. Lib Dems barely scrape past 1000 votes. Tories remains 2nd. Labour increased their majority significantly.

lol no. It's between Lab and the Grn.

Second result's in!

Labour won with more votes, UKIP once again No 2 with a massive surge, LD behind the Grns again to be under 3%.
