Don't know if there's any tangible correlation, but the pound is down about half a percent in the past three hours. Have the markets got an inkling of the final result? :shock:

Scotland has 59 seats, the exit poll predicts the SNP will get 55!

I think a big Tory majority is most calculated to frustrate the SNP's ambition, despite their success.

Looking like cheats and liars are on a roll.

NHS? The poor? The excluded? Foreigners? The Climate? The UK? Forget it.

Only 144 constituencies had the exit poll so I think the Tory majority will be smaller than the forecast.

It'll be there or thereabouts, unless the UK Electorate has committed the biggest mass fib in history.
