    BBC just published the results of exit polls which indicate the Conservatives will lose some seats, Labour will pick up a lot and the SNP will be the big losers.

    But there are 18 seats in the "other" category outside of Greens and UKIP. Are those independents?
    Thanks from Madeline

    That might be a blessing for the Conservatives in the end.

    There are Welsh nationalists, and Northern Ireland equivalents to Lab and Con.

    The Beeb's numbers guy is saying the first two results aren't showing as big a swing as the exit poll.

    The first two that they have announced, and I'm not sure if those are partial results or those ridings are a done deal, but Labour won them but with a much lower percentage, the Conservatives gained in percentage and the UKIP lost big on a percentage of vote basis.
    Thanks from Madeline

    American YouTube has various other nation's news feed streaming live. O la la!

    Sky News is from Britian.

    The Canadian and EU YouTube probably has something similar.

    Sky News expects May to shed 18 seats, and Cornyn to collect them all. 6:45 pm.

    Will Corbyn make a coalition PM?

    Possibly with SNP, the next biggest party, and others. I doubt May's seat is under threat, but her position as PM/party leader definitely is in imminent doubt.
