    Sorry for non UK people who don't care but the results of the UK poll are just coming in and it is one of the closest polls in decades in which is expected that no party will get a majority. 

    Is anyone else watching it?

    Also it is shocking that many people were unable to vote despite queuing for over 2 hours before the voting was due to close.  Also it is shocking that at least some polling stations ran out of ballot papers - seems absolutely shocking!  Any hubbers experienced this first hand?

    Yeah, I'm watching it, from France.  Brilliant so many people got off their backsides to vote, crap that the powers that be were caught not so much napping, as in a coma.  If I had been denied my vote due to such buffoonery I would be hopping mad.  Last election you couldn't have got people to vote even if they got a free burger and fries with their election slip.  Hooray for moat cleaning, duck house building MPs!

      Well one person has admitted that they were caught out majorly as they didn't expect more people to vote than the last time!  Bit unusual that since this is supposed to be the closest election in years with loads of publicity so of course loads of people will try to vote.

      Apparently at the moment it is expected that there will be a hung parliament but then that could change as the night goes on!

        It looks like a hung Parliament is on the cards. Brown has always hinted he would try to make Parliament work anyway. Not likely to hold is it? A hung Parliament I mean. smile

    In Canada we've had minority governments lots of times.. they can work.

    In fact, some of our greatest leaders were well hung
