Well, I didn’t see that coming.
I will leave (for the moment) others to begin the unpacking of how the result happened. I want to just do a quick (and accurate) check on where this leaves the House of Commons and therefore power.
Firstly the Conservatives have won 317* seats at the time of writing (with 649 of 650 seats declared).
(*not 318 as the BBC are reporting. For some odd reason they are including the Speaker – who is no longer a member of any Party – as a Tory as I explain here.)
