    Say the Tories are short of 326, with the DUP, does Labour automatically get a go?

    imagine what it would have been without biased lying papers, i font know what the solution is, but media should have to hold some-sort of credibility up. Maybe extend litigation laws.

    I'm shocked, Portsmouth south my local area is now Labour. First time ever I believe.

    Not sure where they can to from here. While the Conservatives have the most seats, the "more left leaning" have more overall.

    Will the Lib Dems seal there fate by going into a Conservative coalition?. Can't see how hard brexit could be on the table with them.

    Looking at the voting percentages, more voted for Labour & Lib Dem than Tory.

    anyone is free to make deals to get a majority, typically though its left to the "winners" to try first. But I cant see how Lb could for a majority.

    Conservatives can't form a publicly or parliamentary acceptable coalition this time.

    Tory + DUP coalition would result immense backlash and a longer term scar to Tory positions.

    Tory + SNP is the only real option but the UK and Scottish public outcry would be considerable given the respective polarised positions on brexit and Scottish independence.

    Looks like there is less in it than last year's farce, 1.9% vote share difference between Tory and Labour.

    First Past The Post is making May's result look rosier than it is.

    Oh and well done Corbyn for standing on what he believed in for all these years and running a positive campaign.

    Yes indeed, Labour's share of public vote and increase in real number confidence will be a huge boost for them and make it very difficult for the conservatives.

    Labour don't have the numbers to put together a coalition. Even with SNP + LibDems + Greens they don't have more than the Tories on their own.

    So as the largest party the Tories get to form a minority govt. Only if they didn't want to could Labour try a minority govt, as I understand it.

    But that's what I mean, if the Tories have their Queen's Speech downvoted, that means Labour can rule in a minority Government being the second largest party, right?

    Don't forget they are going to change the constituency boundaries to make it even more weighted against Labour. Labour already need more votes per seat than the Tories; with the boundary changes and keeping FPTP, we can look forward to Tory rule forever! Yippie!

    Not a good result for the UK, hung parliament, no party with the authority to negotiate Brexit talks, and if there is a coalition or minority government formed, 4-5 years of political stagnation.
