    This is going to a be a tense few days. Not sure if the exit poll was such a good idea anymore lol
    Well, put it like this: At least your party is still active, has definitely gained seats, and is not in the grave like the Libertarians!

    Or, you could say that at least the Libertarians already know how many seats they have and have no reason to be nervous at all.

    An Exit Poll was posted by Birchington in the GE Thread

    It predicted the seats of the house would be as follows:

    Labour: 16
    Conservative: 12
    Greens: 8
    UKIP: 7
    Liberals: 4
    Socialists: 3
    Others: 0

    I have also conducted a poll of 50 voters, which predicts the seats as follows:

    Labour: 11
    Greens: 10
    Conservative: 10
    Liberals: 7
    UKIP: 7
    Socialist: 3
    Honeywell: 1
    Barnetlad: 1

    Let's see which is closer to the final results.
    (Reminder no formal discussions between parties should be held until confirmed results are released.)

    [EDIT] For comparison last Parliaments seats are as follows:

    Green: 13
    Labour: 9
    Conservative: 9
    UKIP: 7
    Socialist: 5
    Liberal: 5
    Libertarian: 1
    Matthew_Lowson: 1
    As promising as this may be, given that a sample size of 50 would mean only 1 vote would get me elected, I shall take it with a pinch of salt!

    Do not take pleasure in the demise of a historically important HOC party :hand:

    A clear win for the Traffic Light Coalition Government, with both scenarios projecting an increased majority in the House.

    Just to point out that looking at the votes given no indies can get a seat so the exit poll is wrong!!!!

    Of course my exit poll is wrong, it only needed one voter for an indie to get a seat.

    Okay, the exit poll itself was crap, probably a badly selected sample. Personal estimate was decent though

    Fair enough but I would have thought they'd have been lower with the green s a bit higher, but the greens didn't get much attention recently so maybe they went to labour.
    When push comes to shove the election comes closer the swing tends to go away from minor parties. Plus I think people on TSR have been pretty sufficient at tearing apart the Greens recently.
