The last projection that I saw had the Conservatives with the largest number of seats, but 16 short of a majority. They could, possibly, run a minority government but it would be unstable and fractious. A Labour / SNP coalition would still be 19 short of a majority. This could be an interesting time for the Northern Irish and Welsh parties…
Paddy Power will give you 8/1 on a Conservative minority but only 2/9 on Conservative majority..

My general predictions are:

Scotland - gains for Conservatives but more for Labour, possible gains for LibDems but not certain, dreadful night for SNP
Wales - good night for Conservatives, Labour targets fail, poor night for Plaid
South west - LibDem targets fail
North west - good night for Conservatives
North east - Conservative targets mostly fail, but possible surprise upset at Sedgefield (Blair's old seat)
East Anglia - very close result at Cambridge, otherwise few changes
London - bad night for Conservatives, good night for Labour, LibDems lose Richmond, Vince Cable fails to regain Twickenham
Northern Ireland - few changes
Brighton Pavilion stays green
Tim Farron's seat (Westmorland)- a recount and very close result, possible loss
Nick Clegg's seat (Sheffield) - held - possibly only English LibDem seat to remain

How about a little sweepstake tomorrow evening — how many seats will the Conservatives win? £5 to play, nearest takes the pot. Entries would need to be written down blind until all entrants had made their choice, then can be revealed.

I won't be down for lunch as planned, but will endeavour to be on parade early enough to assist with setting up..

Because the result of Thursday’s election isn’t clear in advance, I will need to return to the office in time for the 10pm exit polls. So, for me please, slightly small pours.
Cancel that. Not needed in office. I’ll be a full regular non-meanness usual attendee.

Will you be working all night? Tom and I are likely to be at the other end of Regent Street from your office for most of the night if you need a break and a booster glass.
Despite a little nervousness, the bookies are still offering odds of 9/1 on a Labour minority win (and 16/1 on a Labour majority) so taking into account the risk of a 'close run thing' requiring extended office presence, I'd guess there's a 75% chance you'll be stood down by 10.30 - so why not plan for that eventuality?

Really?! All I can see is that Britain is following the Italians or Belgians having lots of goverment variations and elections going fwd. :roll:

Does that mean that there’s an error, which should be corrected? Or that you have printed and it’s too late? Or, confusingly, both?
I have already printed this off - so let's leave it.

I can easily do a reprint tomorrow and get across to the B&F for 4 if that is helpful?

Don't forget you will need to come in from the Union Street end - the other side is still blocked off.

Returned this afternoon from 8 lovely days in Cornwall celebrating my sister's wedding, and beside myself with excitement for tonight's tasting... but unfortunately some unfriendly folk have smashed in the back doors of our house, been through every draw and cupboard, and as well as taking stuff left me with a very upset family. Suffice to say, I shan't make it this evening, but I very much hope that a great night is had by all. Obviously with all that's been going on, Rosie and I have only lost a few bits and pieces but we are all safe and okay... so in the current context, all is fine. Once again my best to all for a great tasting and I look forward to a glass another time instead.

Thanks Phil... just one of those bumps in life's road. We are now already having 'fun' dealing with the insurance company. The joys!
