    -3 apparently.

    +97 for Tories

    -94 for Labour.

    At least that's what I think flashed up on the BBC just now.

    That exit poll is incredibly depressing as a lifelong LibDem voter.

    If the Lib Dems have significantly increased their proportion of the vote and LOST seats, it really does make a fucking mockery of our political system even more.

    I hear you. There's the prospect that Britain has chickened out at the ballot box looming.

    I wonder how quickly Labour will ditch Gordon Brown? Surely if they lose around 100 seats (or more) they are bound to. Although I don't think historically they have been as ruthless as the Tories at getting rid of leaders, have they?

    Do you not think he'll want to go? I bet he wants a nice lie down, and to have everyone stop being a cunt to him.

    I have said this to EVERY person that's asked about this at work this week... I am gutted if Lib Dems drop seats. It's so fucking WRONG.

    I like that Kirsty Wark is assuming the Clegg's are watching the BBC and not Celebrity Juice on ITV2.

    TOTALLY. Nick Clegg has been fantastic during this election and its completely UNDESERVING and almost cowardly, if the Lib Dems haven't managed to translate that energy into actual votes.

    I know that I definitely wavered as to whether I should vote tactically or with my head/heart and the latter gave way.

    Neither do I really... a shame but I can see its inevitable he'll be forced out, totally at odds with so many positives that could be attributed to him and a nail in the coffin of political politicians over personality politics

    He's so relentlessly angry. I wonder if he's like that with his wife and family.

    Well I'd quite like-
    LOOK WHAT SHOULD I COOK
    Well
    WHY CANT YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION?

    Sadly, voting Tory means that Jark is still massively in the negative points range.
