UK General Election, Results Coming In



A sleepless night for many, for the politicians, journalists and media staff in particular.

I had predicted a hung parliament.

Results for West Dorset

Results for Yeovil

Results for Somerton and Frome

Rather untypical.

Results at 4.45 am (UK time), after 577 of 650 seats declared.

Scotland: Alex Salmond and Angus Robertson lose their seats.

Update:

0620, after 639 of 650 seats

"UK set for Hung Parliament -No party can win a majority in parliament as Theresa May's Conservatives lose seats in England and Wales to Labour and the Liberal Democrats",BBC News

May to forge 'government of certainty' with DUP backing, BBC News


FT Analysis


"The country will soon go into bat against Brussels with one of its weakest teams in decades - surely Britain can do better than this?" The British political class is not up to the job, The Economist
