If they had used PR D'Hondt like us the results would've been

Tory: 242
Labour: 202
UKIP: 83
lib dems: 51
SNP: 32
Green: 24
DUP: 4
Plaid: 4
Sinn fein: 3
UUP: 2
SDLP: 2
alliance: 1

As things stand. Would mean a tory/UKIP coalition

It's live on the TV channel. 284 now

Greens/Caroline Lucas have won/held Brighton & Hove btw
Brighton Pavilion. It's a hold.

(Original post by Inexorably)
Have the greens won bristol west or not announced yet?

Off to work, will return home to a conservative government I imagine
Bristol West has gone to Labour, but it's pretty close; the other constituency is in Labour's hands, too, and not close at all so don't know how the BBC took that as a Green win.

For **** sake. The Greens held Bighton. Now i have to see that dumb smug face for another 4 years.
She's MP of The Year last year.

3 needed 15 to go it will be a tiny majority and will likely be weakened by by-elections into a minority

Just over 5 mins ago! They said on BBC that North was coming in shortly, but not so sure about South - hopefully very soon, and with two leaders already set to quit, will it be a third...

326 is the number meant for a majority, but 323 can technically be a majority.
