Whether we end up with a hung Parliament or not Theresa May is a now a busted flush.
I think Theresa May has won own goal of the season.

This poll is different. It is NOP/Ipsos MORI poll for BBC/ITV/Sky and has proved highly accurate in the past. The exact figures don’t matter, if this is a hung Parliament and Theresa May has thrown away her majority with an unnecessary election and a pathetic campaign reduced to cheap smears and personal attacks in its last days both she and “Hard Brexit” are finished. Period.
Europe is laughing about the Conservatives, first they organize a not-necessary referendum they loose, then a not-necessary election…. https://t.co/cpdOUlQAoh

The aim of the exit poll is to get it within 20 seats, it has been spot on 2 out of 3 past elections. Warning: TV exit polls in 1992 & 2015 showed Tories largest party but short of majority, but they ended up with small majorities both times. This exit poll has 76 seats too close to call. 76. This is going to be a long night but The first 10 seats called usually give an accurate steer to the final outcome.
A lot of senior Tory spokespeople have been pulled from Live
TV in 10 O'Clock Hour

A Tory majority is possible, but it won’t be the mandate May wanted. No sympathy, she didn’t deserve it with a campaign that culminated in the desperate Conservatives sending out bumbling liar Boris Johnson to spread muck on the last day. If you are going to build a shallow campaign around a manufactured personality cult it is useful to actually have a personality.
Well here’s one prediction The Skibbereen Eagle is happy to make. It’s gonna be a long night for Theresa May and the Tories. Whatever happens May is TOAST.
