Dear God, the polls plausibly back a Tory/DUP coalition. If we somehow got a Tory/DUP/UKIP coalition I think you'll find me somewhere banging my head against a wall.

Do you reckon the Greens will have managed to hold onto Brighton Pavillion, then?
She's a popular MP and seems to be a very good one, I expect she'll stay on.

Although there are speculations that DUP may not be easy to get in bed with, as austerity has been harming their position in Northern Ireland.

To be fair wouldn't the Tories just take the liberals back into power without having to deal with the obscure Parties like the DUP, and without giving free PR to UKIP which could bite them in the arese later? They already have a solid working relationship. I don't see why they'd be dead.
I would expect so, Rakas mentioned correctly that the DUP could be bought very easily. Last I checked their "requirements" involved PC reformation, legalisation of marching and bedroom tax changes, plus maybe the fines abolished and corporation tax devolved.

DUP support austerity, they'll want corporation tax devolved and the bedroom tax watered down.

But i don't see why the Tories would prefer them to the Liberals. The Lib Dems are a real party for one thing.

Another seat for Labour.

Very similar results. <1000 for LD. More votes for Lab again.

Next should be Durham North West.

Sunderland west result in.

Lib dems with less than 1000 votes again. Labour secure the seat comfortably. Greens did better than the Lib Dems again. UKIP marginally in front of the Tories.

How many did the Greens get? The ITV presenter spoke over it but I think I heard 3000-something?

He should just join the Greens. They seem to approve of such behaviour.

You're acting as if they have a similar amount of votes with parties which are not expected to win, but they are not and are having like one-seventh/eighth of the votes they've got last time.
