The exit polls in the UK 2010 elections are suggesting David Cameron’s Conservatives will be the largest party with 305 seats.
It falls short of the magic 326 needed to hold an absolute majority.
But there is no way Labour will be celebrating that. The exit poll says they are heading for 255 seats, a loss of 94 seats, and a huge personal defeat for the prime minister.
The maths for the coalition forming for Labour are even worse than for the Conservatives.
The Liberals will again fall short, promising so much, yet unable to deliver when the crunch comes. Exit polls suggest their support is flat.
