Some amazing facts:
- Tories have achieved up to 11% in swing in certain seats but have achieved little or none in certain other targets.
- The vote share seems to be Tory 37% - at the upper end of the opinion poll range; Labour 27% - the worst vote share since the 1920s; and the Lib Dems on about 23%. The Tories are much further ahead of Labour than Thatcher was in 1979 or Labour in 1992 (for example) but they haven't translated that into seat gains.
- Tories have been shit in Scotland - actually falling back - and Labour seems to have done surprisingly well in London.
Very, very interesting. I think we're heading for Tory minority govt - and that's a position I'm very comfortable with. it's been an honour.
