    Some interesting results in there. Congrats to the Greens for making such gains in particular.

    Libertarians are now officially the smallest party in the MHoC, then.

    Also, how/when do we find out how the seats have been allocated?

    I can do some rough maths now if you want. Give me a moment.
    From biggest to smallest:

    Labour, 11-12 seats
    Tories, 9-10 seats
    Greens, 6-7 seats
    UKIP, 5-7 seats
    Socialist, 5-7 seats
    Liberal, 4-5 seats
    Libertarian, 3-4 seats
    Tehfrance, 1 seat (though he got enough votes for 2-3)

    Well done to all involved.

    Congratulations to Labour in particular. It appears making up triple dip recessions is a good vote earner.
    For the second election in a row Labour actually lost vote share.

    Well done Liberals . We did pretty damn well in this election. Hopefully the new Labour government will do well this term.
    New? Are you not sticking on the fringe left?

    And there we have it! The polls are closed and the results are in.

    A seven day coalition building period will now begin.

    In a short amount of time, I will open a proper post election discussion thread where we can do some analysis, and I'll also finalise the seat distributions. For now, feel free to have your discussions in here.

    Congratulations to those who made gains and commiserations to those who made losses. It was an election which dragged on, but it was well fought by all sides.
    Will you be posting the pre-mass PM vote share at some point?

    Don't be too bitter. We've done extremely well for a party that's only existed for a couple of weeks.

    No you're a party that's existed for years and have managed to pick up 1 seat by changing your name.

    Depending on the minutiae of the seat allocations, we could be joint with the liberals.

    In the eyes of the electorate we might as well be an entirely new party. That is what is important.

    Still, even if that were true it would still be better than being around for years and losing seats, I suppose.

    We have the same results, so seems alright.

    EDIT: OUCH. The Liberals needed 2 more votes to take another seat.

    What I meant was that we had the same number of seats. It'd be a pretty weak coalition with 8 members.

    Well done. Still, we can agree that the RL names seem to be a big boon, especially with the rise of the Greens (though they had a very active first term, so I expect they've picked up support both ways)

    You'd need a groovy third party to join the party.
