    Polls are due to close and all will be revealed in the next few hours.

    The GE thread is huge but now out of date so here is a new one to discuss (remember this is CA so no fun) the consequences of the result!

    Labour win!!! ? FFS let me out of here.

    Tory win but not with any real increase in majority - PMTM becomes ex-PMTM.

    Tories with huge majority - all benefits stopped, tax cuts for anyone with a Tory party membership card. Donations to Tory HQ repaid £ for £ through tax rebates!

    Hung parliament and we all go through this again in October/November!

  3. Latest poll on BBC one suggests conservatives will be largest party but not getting the 326 seats majority.

    Hung parliament would be interesting or disastrous?

    Disaster! Snap election and not engaging with face to face tv appearances have blown up in her face.

  7. Biggest consequence for me is a total lack of faith in any politician.....I voted conservative... but not with any enthusiasm .... they have lost the support of many middle income hard working people...trouble is the alternative was Corbyn... would probably of gone UKIP if the Cons had not cocked up their campaign so badly.
    T May will now be remembered as the PM who misread the voters almost as badly as the previous PM THAT is an achievement

    The pounds collapsed, after the exit polls came out it looked like it fell of Dover Cliffs.

    There will be no Brexit if the Tories don't get in with a working majority. IMHO.
