Where Angles Fear to Tread

Disaster for MayCon

Filed under: Politics, UK Politics — Right Angle @ 11:06 pm

In 2015 CON = 331; LAB = 232, and the exit poll is suggesting that CON will drop and LAB will gain with a dramatic fall for SNP.

As an exit poll it is always difficult to know whether it is right, wrong, or badly wrong but if it is true, or CON don’t get at least 331 then this will be bad for May and could spell the end of her lead in the Conservative party. She may be able to survive if they achieve at least 331 (but would be unlikely to make it to 2022) but any lower than this and one would assume that she may not even make it to the start of Brexit negotiations in June.

Unfortunately, she only has herself to blame for this close run election. Don’t trust polls (a message from 2015 & 2016), and run a good and positive election. (Which she failed to do – see my pre-closure blog earlier). I’m still hoping for a CON majority to give us a slightly more stable government, as a minority government may see another election in October / November which I’m sure is not what anyone wants!
