Nah, they'll manage to rally themselves under new leadership, they will have a tough decade or three but they're not down for the count just yet
it's gonna feel like 3 decades under this government...

Not in the slightest bit. Right-wing Protestant-fundamentalist bigots most of them.
shows how little I know about NI...

I meant the fact if they share the same values as the UK Conservatives, I can't see why on Earth they'd merge ---
Oops I skimmed your post.

Yes the conservatives may have won in the constituencies where it was lib dem majority overtaken by cons, but I'm saying that because they lost their centre-left support, they didn't have enough votes to prop them up and would have been overtaken by cons in those areas if you understand me
I get what you're saying... but do the voting figures match that???

Yes. They never merged because of hard times though, the SDLP split from Labour because of the militants and allied with the old liberals, if anything they merged because of the success of that alliance.



I think what happened is that the left of your party left and the right of the party crapped themselves at the thought of a Labour led SNP so rallied behind the larger coalition partner.
Intended pun or not?

Yes your explanation makes a lot of sense too. My grandparents actually voted that way - they picked conservatives because 'they didn't want labour-SNP in government', and my nan said she would have voted Lib Dem otherwise.

I've decided as I've got time tonight, to make some exit polls for the TSR election, to be released when the vote closes.
Is there any issue with me contacting some on the fence voters confidentially to ask them how they voted, so to form the stats?

OK, so it wouldn't just be a choice of sitting MPs?

I think AMS makes the representation problem redundant though, as the Speaker's constituents could contact one of their regional MPs instead.
No. Thats true, but would it not be preferable to have an active MP?

Would be interesting to see, if horribly inaccurate (where have we seen that before?).

They'd have several regional ones.

No as in a primary MP.

That shouldn't be too important when they have a number of others to represent them.

A bit behind here... but for anyone interested, here's a (albeit slightly outdated as it doesn't have a few constituencies on there) map showing 2nd place results in the election:



(pro paint skills I used to edit some of the uncoloured).

I) Devon East is uncoloured because independent was 2nd
II) If one of the uncoloureds near the top is bradford west, it's cause respect came 2nd
III) Don't know what constituencies the other uncoloured are.

I'll echo the not enough purple, the only time it not being purple is acceptable is if it's blue (with UKIP having won). The third place will have even more purple, being third in something like 364 seats (second in 120), and I guess you really won't like this biggest swing map:

I think that there'd be more due to the ones you can't see...
also with PR more people would vote green!!!

Holy crap that's astonishing.

I'm just about to update my post with the uncoloured seats (though there's three small ones near the top which I have no idea of - is one bradford west? if so, then it's still uncoloured cause respect [other] came second).

Devon east remains uncoloured too cause an independent came 2nd, her vote share increased by 22pcnt or so... hats off to her.

I think a third place map would potentially show more greens, not 2nd place though.
