They reckon a huge majority for the tories!

Doodle Thu 12-Dec-19 22:02:54

Probably wrong then tchgrin

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:03:22

Fingers tightly crossed in our house.

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:04:19

(That it's right)

I might not sleep now. It's gone all exciting.

Anniebach Thu 12-Dec-19 22:05:45

please not 1983 again

Sara65 Thu 12-Dec-19 22:05:58

If they’re right, and they probably are, I’m surprised.

Tooting29 Thu 12-Dec-19 22:06:28

If this is correct, its totally unexpected

If it's that bad for Labour it's the end of Corbyn.

MerylStreep Thu 12-Dec-19 22:09:47

Ed Balls on ITV news was almost grinning at the demise of Corbyn.

I think a lot of people that seem to think that the Conservatives and Johnson are on their side are in for a big shock over the coming months/years.

I might not sleep now. It's gone all exciting.

I was all set to go up to bed. I'm sat here thinking I'll just hold on a while.

I do remember though that I went up to bed on the night of the referendum with it looking as if Remain had won

And we all know how that ended up

So I am not hugely convinced about exit polls

Anniebach Thu 12-Dec-19 22:10:09

If it is that bad some good MP’s will lose their seats

Smileless2012 Thu 12-Dec-19 22:10:12

Oh Gonegirl you've got me excited now so I might not be able to go to bed.

Pittcity Thu 12-Dec-19 22:10:15

Stanley Johnson on channel 4 has already had a bit to drink I think.....

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:10:49

It's only a projection though. Must remember that I guess.

Still really exciting. tchgrin

Alima Thu 12-Dec-19 22:12:39

Ooh, this looks exciting! Got the blanket ready, may well stay down and watch.

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:12:43

Reckon people just want Brexit out of the way now, whichever they voted in the ref.

Drum1234 Thu 12-Dec-19 22:13:24

Unfortunately, the exit polls are normally an accurate prediction. Goodbye NHS.

Anniebach Thu 12-Dec-19 22:14:29

2017 election - prediction was 266 seats for Labour , they won

Urmstongran Thu 12-Dec-19 22:14:31

This was on Sky News. I photographed it as it’s only a prediction.

I just posted on the wrong thread by mistake.

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:14:37

Gotta rub my sons nose in it share the news with son now.

twiglet77 Thu 12-Dec-19 22:17:00

Exit polls can be wrong... but I hope they're not.

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:17:16

I'm a bad mother.

Gonegirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:17:45

With you there twiglet

Luckygirl Thu 12-Dec-19 22:17:46

If the poll is right then I think this has been a Brexit vote - the desire of many to get out of Europe at all costs may have overridden the offensive nature of a liar and a cheat as PM. Troubled times.

BJ will be able to hop into bed with Trump - makes me shiver.
