Tories have finally overtaken Labour. I'm surprised it took this damn long.

 

Oh, and UKIP: 0%. It'd better stay that way!

It's official. The Tories literally physically cannot make it to 326. There just aren't enough seats.

My. Fucking. God.

 

 

MAY YOU MOTHERFUCKER. There hasn't been a more spectacular fuck-up of one's chances at victory since the 2016 US Presidential Election.

I mean, June is the end of May, so what did I expect?

Tories (more specifically May) f*cked it big time, but the biggest losers (in terms of seats lost, not being a dick) are the SNP with 18 seats lost.

They deserve it and to be honest I am glad it failed miserably, The most of the UK have woken up to their lies since May got in power around a year ago. I am actually shocked that Labour did so well as well, Also sad that the Greens didn't get another seat they were trying to get Bristol West.

This is the worst election blunder since David Cameron and the EU referendum :p

 

One staggering result is that my home town (Canterbury) voted out the tories that have held the seat for 99 years! With Sir Julian Brazier losing his seat he has held since 1987. I literally never thought this possible. There was an incredibly strong student social media movement. The youth turn out changed this whole election.

Labour even won Kensington too! :) (or so it seems – there's a recount underway)

 

If true, that's completely mental. To give some idea to non-Brits about what this means, it's the equivalent of a Democrat senator winning a very safe GOP state in the USA. Kensington is the richest, most luxurious borough in London and indeed the entire UK.

 

It seems Brexit was a major issue in this election. Speaking of which, UKIP has been annihilated. :)

 

The youth vote also helped, as you've said.

Yeah I'm still amazed. In Canterbury and Whitstable, the 99 years of Conservative monopolisation only goes back to when the constituency formed in 1918. It's actually been almost 160 years of Conservative rule in Canterbury. You couldn't have found much of a safer Tory seat than these.

Theresa May will visit Buckingham Palace at 12:30 BST to seek permission to form a UK government, despite losing her Commons majority.

The prime minister is attempting to stay in office on the understanding that the Democratic Unionist Party will support her minority administration.

 

With one seat left to declare, the Tories are eight seats short of the 326 figure needed to command a majority.

 

Jeremy Corbyn has urged her to quit, saying Labour is "ready to serve".

 

The DUP are crazy, but there is a good chance they would form an alliance with the Conservatives. They were very pro-Brexit after all.
