So the UK election is finally over, except it’s not because we still don’t have a government.
So while we are waiting for a government to be sorted, here is my guide to the good and bad things to happen on May 6th
- We have a hung parlament and a real chance for electoral reform.
- Northern Ireland’s First Minister and all round dodgy character Peter Robinson lost his Belfast East seat to the Alliance Party’s Naomi Long, giving Alliance its first ever Westminster election win, and their second MP in the party’s existence.
- Lembit Öpik lost his Montgomeryshire seat having previously held a 7000-vote majority
- Curious George Galloway is no longer an MP.
- The Ulster Unionist Party, now re-branded as the Conservatives and Unionists, has has no MPs and cannot prop up a Conservative government.
- UKIP Leader Nigel Farage failed in his attempt to unseat Speaker John Bercow.
- The BNP died on their collective arses.
- The Conservatives won the most seats.
- The new dawn of British Politics with a stronger Lib Dem party, was a rather false dawn.
- Expenses abusers and serial liar Nadine Dorries managed to keep her seat
- Science spokesman Evan Harris lost Oxford West and Abingdon by 176 votes.
- Millionaire journalist bell end Zac Goldsmith is now an MP.
- Iain Dale is still asked to appear on TV.
- All those piss poor well hung parliament jokes.
