"Mr Clegg held his, but said he would discuss his position as party leader with colleagues on Friday."

Elected HoL is one of the stupidest things we could do to our government system, it replaces experts with HoC rejects
Labour isn't really that surprising taken in conjunction with the Tory results, given just how poor the two Eds have been (despite being multi millionaires )
Lib Dems was an interesting one, was surprised how badly they did
Still hoping for Farage to win his seat
the HoL is just HoC rejects anyway? and as i recall the HoL back in 2012 was calling for itself to be elected... plus a senate and federalization would protect the union...
I think they didn't do themselves any favours
they are the 5th largest arent they?
nahhh, UKIP is finally dead:party:

There are too many former politicians in the HoL, but it's far from HoC rejects.
In terms of seats, yes, LD is down in 5th, in terms of votes 4th
UKIP isn't dead until we're out of the EU
And a BBC forecast update: Con 329

according to google (its been a bit slow so im not sure if this is accurate) cameron needs to win 81 seats out of 110 remaining to get a majority. put like that it makes me feel more confident that it'll be a tory minority government.

You fail to consider that most of the late declaration seats tend to be Tory seats, much like most of the early ones tend to be Labour.

I know that I'm trying to hold on to the last glimmer of hope I have left.
