So the polls close in less than 30 minutes, with the first exit polls coming out at 10pm, and the beginning of a beautiful night of democracy. Hopefully many of you will be joining us here through the evening.

Ten minutes until the poll closes and we get our first exit polls. I'm expecting a Conservative majority, and the Conservatives will probably end up with at least 10+ seats more than the exit polls suggest, as per 2015.

Anxiously awaiting the exit poll results. I still think there's some chance the Tories might be about to do a Blair.

Well, this one obviously doesn't have the same sense of NERVES at last time, it's just how big the win is for May. I'm going to up my guess to a majority of about 90.

Final prediction: around 365 seats for the Tories.

Really all I'm here for is the (probably slim) chance of Naomi Long unseating the THUNDERCUNT that is Gavin Robinson in East Belfast.

I think it'll be quite close, but still a win for the DUP.

Then again, I was wrong about the UUP gaining 2 seats in 2015, so what do I know?

I think we can fairly safely say they WON'T be holding either of them after tonight, however.

Conservatives being predicted 314 seats, short of a majority.

Just remember that the Conservatives were predicted a similar figure in 2015 and ended up with a majority, so they still could scrape a majority still. But still not the landslide that they would have wanted.

Well, whatever happens, this pretty much signs May's death warrant (at some point within the next year). Unless the poll is seriously out.

There is no way she will be allowed to fight another election after her woeful performance this time.

I still think she'll get a majority. Amber Rudd may be in trouble in Hastings.

And this was with YEARS of undemocratic press attacks and media bias.

No wonder the Elite was shitting itself and apoplectic with rage.

Exit poll suggesting SNP will lose 22 seats? I don't really see that happening.

2015 exit poll had Con 316 vs Labour 239 and it ended up Con 330 vs Labour 232. Will be interesting whether it underestimates the conservatives this time round or not. Will be a very interesting night!

But we'll still have a Tory gov't, albeit one propped up by Irish unionists.

I wonder if we'll see the end of 'wee jimmy krankie' though?
