UK Election Results Coming In

Results Flooding In

Most of the UK election results are now in and they have provided a big shock for almost everyone in the country, except in Scotland.


The polls over the last few weeks have been suggesting that there would be no clear winner among the political parties in the UK, apart from Scotland where it was predicted that there would be a huge victory for the Scottish Nationalist Party. That prediction came true, with what has been described as an "election earthquake" in Scotland. Elsewhere, the campaign polls were wrong, with an exit poll carried out by the media companies suggesting an overall Conservative victory being greeted with disbelief but now appearing to be correct. It looks as if the Conservatives (similar to the Republican party in the US) will have a majority, and will not need to form a coalition with any other party. The Labour party (similar to the Democratic party in the US) has lost many seats and the centre party, the Liberals has also lost many seats. Many big names have lost seats.

Hope whoever wins does not let down the trust that people have reposed in them.

It is viewed as the fiercest and the most uncertain election in the UK after world War II in the media .The government should better people's lives whichever party rules over the country .

I honestly don't know what to say about the result - and that is really not like me. I normally love a good political debate but I am just so shocked that the SNP have won all but three Scottish seats.

I'm very disappointed with the results, If I'm honest I believe they were fixed.

I think the Scottish vote really had a knock on effect everywhere else. Any votes for anywhere else were lost. Interesting results though. London is still Labour while the country is Conservative. The two politicians I know who have come to church meetings (Andrew Smith, Labour and Nicola Blackwood, Conservative,) got in so I am thinking God was watching over Oxford!

The Scots already warned England of what might happen if the whole nation voted SNP. Now that its done, it will be interesting to see how Scotland and England can work together. Im pleased in a way but I didn't vote SNP.

I think I am inclined to agree with you. I have read many cases of people who were told they couldn't vote at the polling station ! Why? Others were flatmates who went to vote and their vote had already been registered-what is going on?

The result was quite a shock to a lot of people.

This seems to be a really big year for both elections and referenda. Canada has its federal election coming up in October. I'm hoping that the Conservatives here will be unseated, as they were in the province of Alberta last week.

So, now that the SNP had made such a sweeping success, do you think there will be calls for another referendum for independence before long?

It seems like your system works the same as the one in the states.
