The exit polls have come up with an interesting situation for us all. They are currently predicting the following:
- Conservatives 307 seats
- Labour 255
- Lib Dems 59
- Others 29
This comes across as a little crazy. I find it hard to fathom that following the first of the election debates, where Nick Clegg came out as the peoples' favourite, that taking into account 'uniform national swing', the Lib Dems actually would see a loss of seats.
It seems that either the Clegg-factor was the most short lived of politcal fads, or that the exit polls are wildly inaccurate. Still, it provides election-watchers with something interesting to keep an eye on and seems to be squarely pointing to a hung parliament.
