So What On Earth Is Happening ?

We have no idea who is going to be running the UK. It is most disconcerting !

At 4:44pm, the Conservatives have won 304 seats . They are 22 seats short of a majority, with 2 still to declare a result.

We will be having a hung Parliament, but it could be Labour/LibDem or Conservative/LibDem.

 Under the unbelievably insane regulations, if it’s a hung parliament, it’s not the party with the largest number of seats that has first go at forming a coalition - which would be the Conservatives- rather, it is the prerogative of  the still sitting Labour government.

So we continue to wait patiently for the three parties to meet, wrangle, dispute and negotiate until two of them reach an agreement.

Crazy.  We desperately need electoral reform in this country.

The news people have been following this story, too, and I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who can't figure it out. However -- I don't live there. When the people who *live* there can't figure it out, yes, reform is desperately needed.
