Please don't let the Tories win. Please don't let the Tories win...

It seems like around 90% of the people I know are voting Lib Dems, 9% are going for Labour, and abotu 1% want the Tories back in power to rape and pillage the land. The annoying thing is that I suspect that the Tories are going to win. Poop.

Anyway, I hope all you Brits have voted!

Woo! Nice one, Novy. A friend of mine recently moved to Brighton, and whilst I'm unsure which way he voted, if he did, I know he's excited about their result (as am I).

I've been watching the coverage since last night (hooray for no sleep!), and it's actually becoming really interesting. It looks to be that if Labour try to form a coalition, every single left-wing minority party will be important in achieving that; the welsh parties, the scottish parties, the lib dems and even possibly the single green constituency, depending on how the last few votes fall. Whilst I wouldn't have voted for Labour, they would be my second choice, and with their policies tempered with the Lib Dems, SNP, welsh and irish parties and perhaps even the Green party, a much more widespread left-wing government might be formed with concessions to the more left-wing parties' policies.

I may just be sleep deprived, but this thing is keeping me completely interested throughout...

Oh, and with the Tories having basically said no to a coalition with the lib dems, their chances of forming a majority are very small indeed, and the talk is that even if they form a minority government (which means the other parties can tell them to take a long walk on policies, if they unite against them), it might last a year before another general election may be called for.

I'm, like, 0_0

EDIT: and now Gordon Brown has said that Labour are up for a coalition with the Lib Dems, and that they're willing to concede on finance and political reform. How exciting. I'll shut up now, because I'm not actually saying anything that the BBC aren't anymore...
