    You mean in Europe, or also in the US?

Europe and European Union is a different paradigm and you must also look at the achievements which are very important andwere not the result of orcing some to the will of others. And furthermore, even if many fear globalization, it is a trend you cannot stop and Europe is one of the only tool and response. So oneway ofthe other Europe is going tobuild itself, especialyl if Briain is no more in the game.....

    The Guardian reports a "hung Parliment" predicted off exit polls.

    Pound falls.

    Shock exit polls, hung Parliament! One can but hope. Cons must be set to lose big in England, since they were expecting to take some Scots and Welsh seats. It's going to be a long night.

    What happens if no party has enough seats to put a PM in place? Does May just stay on, because she wasn't defeated?

    Coalition.

    Two parties join together to form the government.

    The party with the most seats has opportunity to do this.

    I don't think it's hysteria to suggest terror attacks are planned to influence elections around Europe.

    Whether Russia is directing them or not.

    But if Putin is that involved, he is pushing the West to the brink of tolerance. At some point, this would have to be recognized as Putin making war on the West.

    Unless......?

    In a hung Parliament, the biggest party (likely the Conservatives) gets to choose to go it alone, or form a coalition. Labour, SNP and the Greens have said they never will, The Lib Dems might, but there's less than ten of them, and having fought the election as the only "reverse Brexit" party, they'd be dead in the water if they did. The Northern Ireland Unionists will probably fall in line.
    After two results, turnout is up, and going Labour, and Ukip is losing votes back to the Conservatives. Both Labour seat have increased their majority. Early days.
