    Election results 2019: Tories on course to win majority - exit poll
    The Conservatives are set to win an overall majority of 86 in the general election, according to an exit poll for the BBC, ITV and Sky News.
    The survey taken at UK polling stations suggests the Tories will get 368 MPs - 50 more than at the 2017 election - when all the results have been counted.
    Labour would get 191, the Lib Dems 13, the Brexit Party none and the SNP 55.
    The Green Party will still have one MP and Plaid Cymru will lose one seat for a total of three, the survey suggests.
    The first general election results are due before midnight, with the final total expected to be known by Friday lunchtime.
    All our TV channels and S4C are available to watch live through BBC iPlayer, although some programmes may not be available to stream online due to rights.

    I'm American and I have a question I hope you Brits out there can answer for me: Did the Conservatives win so many Labour votes because of Brexit only, or were those voters so sick of Labour in general, they voted Conservative? In other words, was it a single issue election?

      @Blap Bloppingham Thanks, Blap. Fascinating insight.

    • Blap Bloppingham

      In my opinion it was down to three main factors -
      1) Yes, Brexit. Watching them constantly stalling was beyond infuriating, and I've no doubt that this played a large part in the SIZE of the majority the Conservatives won. They would still have comfortably won without the Brexit factor (contrary to what the delusional Labour supporters think), but probably not with 80 seats.
      2) The popularity of Boris Johnson. He is a very well liked character in this country. He isn't the most pleasant or honest man by any stretch of the imagination, but he's extremely affable, and often very amusing. Most importantly, he's an upbeat character, with a consistently optimistic outlook.
      3) The unpopularity of Jeremy Corbyn. Where to even begin? This man is a disaster of a leader. Think bigger than Hillary Clinton and her modest failure and subsequent modest defeat. Think DISASTER. Without merit. An ineffectual and morally dubious man, who allowed racism to run riot in his party. Either he was too weak to stop it, or he was happy to allow it. Either way...the thought of this man in charge of the country sent a collective shiver down the spines of so many traditional Labour voters, some of whom had voted Labour all their lives until this year.
      The perfect storm of conditions existed simultaneously to allow the Conservatives to not only win, but win BIG. The most ironic thing is that this election would probably not have happened, if Corbyn had not given his consent to it going ahead. A spectacular own goal on his part, but it was no great surprise to anyone. As I said, he is a disaster. A cock-up of this magnitude was exactly what so many of us expected of him.

      @John Day We have a similar situation here in the States. The Democrat party is now the party of white coastal elites and minorities. It's essentially a party of grevience groups. People who feel victimized by the dreaded white male. It's clear to me in both our countries white males are now seemingly overwhelmingly right-leaning. What shocked me about your recent election was how sudden that seemed to happen. In the U.S. white males and the lower and middle classes have been steadily moving to the right since the 1960's. I didn't see any evidence of that in your country. I'm happy to say I was wrong.

      To see what we feel about brexit i urge you to view the brexit song by Dominic Frisby on youtube!

    • John Day
      John Day 7 days ago

      Brexit played a very large in the swing from labour to conservative but it was the tip, albeit a very large tip, of an iceberg which, below brexit,
      consisted of the feeling that the party took their supporters for granted, that they were more concerned about refugees and people who wanted
      to come in from abroad than the ordinary working man and woman who are struggling to survive here, people who saw their children having to budge up
      in already full classes to accommodate children of people who had never paid a penny piece towards the taxes which paid for those classrooms. The same can be said of
      hospitals, the overcrowded roads, and every other public service that we taxpayers have payed into all our working lives.
      Also we had the feeling that the leadership of labour seemed to hate the country which they wished to rule,epitomised by Corbyn, who seems to support every
      terrorist organisation in the world, Dianne Abbott who gave the impresslon that she does not like people with white skin, in other words she is a racist, but
      cannot be called that because she's black. There are so many other things that i could write which, to an ex labour voter like myself, gave the impression
      that they are in fact, anti British, and there is no way i could vote for them.
      To quote your own words back, yes, we were sick of labour in general!!!

Another **_Millennium Snowflake_** has been exposed as a absolute fool and not worthy of her SEAT with the BBC - YOU ARE FIRED.

You were TOTALLY WRONG and if any dignity you should quit from your overpaid Licence Payers Job ASAP. I begrudge any single penny of my £154.50 fee being put in your pocket. Your Time will come and sooner than you expected, drain the swamp of these lousy so called Political Reporters who only have it seems ½ a brain as proven by your comrades at the BBC such as Naga Munchetty who unable to answer a simple question on Millionaires, You all live it would seem in an inner London Bubble and have no idea of the outside world.*

    *I would imagine that many faces dropped at the **_Biased Broadcast _**_-Crap-_**_ Corporation_** (BBC) when results predicted from Exit Polls. "I can't believe it we have been hammering Tories and Boris "Lies" for weeks, and now our jobs and possible even funding is in peril, try ITV asap or maybe Sky" Many at the BBC are guilty of biased programs and a big AXE maybe coming soon. Personally I don't mind paying my modest amount for free of adverts and good quality programs, but certainly have noticed heavy London Leftist leanings. Bring back the FREE over 75 Licence, after all they have paid all their lives and have paid your wages for many years. You Promised You would do this and have totally failed. Your Penalty will be that the Licence Fee be totally abolished and you will all be redundant. The Honest ones (Andrew Neil apart from one stupid slip up) may survive but the rest of you including that intolerable Fiona **-Shrek-** Bruce and dreadful Laura Kuenssberg, Naga Munchetty who is so brain dead could not answer an easy question on Millionaires - total waste of space and just shows how little they are aware of outside their tiny London Box, SACK THE LOT - YOU ARE FIRED.*

    *God only knows who Islington Voters are from - Corbynista's and Thornside sure picked 100% safe seats with (just made sure) less than 48% born in Britain, overrun by immigrants with free NHS/Schools/Benefits all free today Utopia etc etc....They have no idea, and if Emily and Jeremy had any guts at all would stand at a marginal seat, but that's pure fantasy of course. They cherry pick the safest seats in the whole of the UK*

    This era of politics will be remembered for a long time in political history. Corbyn was always going to be the underdog but his worst mistake was in trying to play all sides as you end up playing none. Regardless of what you may think about him as a person or his politics/economics...he is a poor leader in the true meaning of the word, there is no argument about that. The problem for Labour going forward is that they are a different party to what they were just 30 years ago. It's going to take them well over a decade to change assuming they wanted to and started now.

    • Astuteous Maximus
      Astuteous Maximus 21 day ago

      @DFandV Yeah we know why, he was having to play both Momentum who help get him in as leader and then Labour voters many of whom voted to leave. I was for leave but not because I don;t believe in a united Europe. The idea of a united Europe is not only sound, it;s probably a necessity going into the end of the century. I voted leave due to the people who are currently ruling the EU mate. I do not agree with their vision of Europe. If we are to unite then it needs to be a Europe that is Europe and that is for the interest of Europeans/European culture. If not, I may as well stick to the criminals running the asylum here lol

    This exit poll served as a reality check...if you were to read the comments on twitter in the days and weeks leading up to the election, you would have been convinced Comrade Corbyn was heading for a huge landslide...the youth quake was in full tremor and there was a crescendo of anti Boris and anti Tory rhetoric. It goes to show how out of touch and misrepresenting twitter is. It is a left wing echo chamber which had actively waged a war against non left wing users with right wing (or rather non left wing) accounts being closed down for the slightest infraction whilst left wing hatred is allowed to flourish unchallenged. I myself have had three accounts closed in the last year, because I failed to tow the lefty line. If us time this left wing propaganda platform is closed down. There should be no place in Post brexit UK for fifth columnists to peddle their poison and twitter needs investigating for discrimination and bias

    This was definitely one of those ‘Kennedy’ moments for me...a moment you will recall with instant clarity no matter how old you get...you will remember where you were and who you were with when you saw/heard the result of this exit poll...it was a real goosebump moment as it finally, after three and half years of dither and delay, and the foul plottings and frustrations of that ‘rogue’ Parliament, meant that Brexit would now be done, democracy had won out despite the efforts of those who sought to overturn it. It also saw off the rise of the extremist militant left, delivering upon it such a crushing battering that hopefully we’ve knocked it back into the foul fetid swamp out of which it crawled in the first place. I’m hoping we have destroyed it completely or at least immobilised it for another generation or more.
