    I think it is essential that these things be informative.

    That's quite impressive.
    Pretty chuffed if I say so myself.

    Indeed. Though we still have to factor out the ineligible votes first.
    Agreed, there's probably going to be some change. My instinct is telling me the ineligible votes will be more towards Labour than the tories. Don't ask why I think that though hahah.

    I've been saying for ages that we'd get at least 3 seats

    PetrosAC Before you accept to be Labour's poodle for another term I think your negotiation needs to include Labour agreeing to whip their MPs to support some unique Liberal policies, cabinet positions people are interested in, and the ability to veto a budget the Liberal leader does not like.

    I politely thank you for your advice, though I do not need it. I will also point out that I was not the Leader that negotiated the last coalition deal, and this will be my first at the helm.

    I think you deserve it, even though I might be a bit bias.

    Well in fairness I wouldn't say it is - we've had a very high output of Bill-to-MP ratio, probably the highest, and we've been one of the most productive parties this term.
    We were definitely the most productive SP though

    Based on the exit poll, the government has a net loss of two seats.

    I wouldn't call that an endorsement

    If what I hear about the last hour or two is true, that is about a dozen votes or so all to a single party, it does smell somewhat of questionable, if not outright illegal play, I.e. some form of directed canvassing, and if on site probably explicitly against the rules.

    You aren't the only person who can see the polls, there is also the matter of watching the vote count and inference from your own comments

    I'm aware of that but people shouldn't be peaking - and if they are so weak-willed as to do so they certainly should be spreading rumours.

    My comments are a riddle wrapped up in an enigma wrapped up in html. :ninja:
