The exit poll shows a Conservative win with Labour a poor second.
and with bigger margin than I could have imagined!

144 polling stations polled. Just 22000 voters polled.
So.....
How many poll stations in UK? How many voters?
How many people told Mori to mind there own business?

The pound surged against the dollar after the exit poll figures were announced, with sterling gaining 3% to $1.35 - its highest level since May last year. The pound also jumped to a three-and-a-half-year high against the euro, perhaps it wasn't Brexit that caused it

Now watch this Country progress for everyone's benefit. Give this new Tory Government 4-5 years to change the face of every voter for the good.
They will not get everything right, but the Corbyn alternative was a dreadful prospect. Hopefully a new proper Socialist Labour Party will arise.

Somebody's on the pitch, they think it's all over...

Despite all the Labour lies and negativity, common sense has prevailed. It was a case that the people of the UK understood democracy and that leave meant to leave. All that remains is for the people of Scotland to realize the same thing and that they had their democratic vote in 2014. The SNP should and must realize that that was their democratic choice, and defer from this ridiculous clamour to kick democracy in the gonads and ask the people again. If they lose that, what comes next, oh let's make it the best of five.

The Tories have won an election, with a manifesto that in effect said the last 9 years were all wrong, and we will now say we will reverse all previous Tory policies, on NHS on police on education and so much more.
Democracy will now be under constant threat for the next dozen years as they ride roughshod over the courts, parliament, the BBC, the NHS, local democracy, immigrants, Scotland and Northern Ireland and so much more, but especially those who cannot stand up for themselves.
They have prattled slogans, without explaining anything. They have avoided scrutiny, frightened to discuss anything. They have shown themselves to be utterly cynically uncaring. And utterly cowardly. They have lied continually, they have avoided questions, they have hidden in fridges, they have been kept from speaking their thoughts as they are so right wing. The people have voted according to the slogans, not the policies,
There are virtually no policies within the manifesto. Just vague words which are sinister and which do not bear scrutiny. There is no evidence to show that we will be better off as a country. They were blessed to be confronted with a clown of an opposition leader who should be ashamed of the mess he has allowed to happen. People have voted against him.
I expect taxes will either fall or not rise as they might have done. This will benefit the wealthy, to the detriment of the less able. Soon it will be forgotten, that Brexit has caused this or caused that. I expect to be personally better off in narrow financial terms. But we as a country will suffer for decades to come in so many ways.
Be fearful, do not be old, do not be young, do not be sick, do not be mentally ill. Be fearful.

The country has gone to hell in a handcart. If you voted Tory, suck it up and reap what you sow. For me, I'll be dead sooner than later so it doesn't matter.

Besides the Bristolians old world rhetoric posting, (which, lets face it, is well past it's sell by date), therein lies that posting above from Brian, which says everything that is wrong with this country.
All I can say to you is Brian , never trust a politician, but no doubt you are a pensioner so you should be wise enough and more experienced enough to know that by now without all that clapping. But good luck old feller.

Those that voted Conservative will get what they deserve.
Those that did not vote Conservative will get the benefits as well, even though they don't deserve it.
