British Election Results in Hung Parliament, First Since 1974

What’s the deal here, was the first-ever televised debate to blame for a lack of a majority? Simon Veazey writes in the Epoch Times:
UK Election

The British election has resulted in a hung parliament, with the Conservative Party gaining the most seats but falling short of the overall majority that would automatically grant them governance.

The apparent meteoric rise of Nick Clegg failed dismally to translate from the opinion polls to the ballot box, with his Liberal Democrat Party increasing its share of the vote by only one per cent, and most likely losing seats.

The election results have not been all declared, with 24 constituencies still to announce results at present. At present the Conservative seat count stands at 299, Labour at 255, and Lib Dems at 54.

However, it is clear from the results that the Conservative Party cannot win the majority needed to automatically claim the right to form a government.

    The election was a farce new voters were registered at labour councillors houses just before the registraion period finished, so many were registered that full checks could not be carried out, Shiria Khatun who was standing for election slammed the door in one reporters face when he asked about 3 new voters registered at the address. The reporter claims her husband shouted “Get out of here bloody bastard.” Charming!
    Hundreds of voters were turned away from polling stations after queing for hours, what kind of backwards democracy are we living in in the UK? Nevermind the presidential style of the leaders debates, we've imported the corruption that comes with american democracy, we'll probably find out next week hundreds of people from cornwalls votes haven't been counted beacuse they're too cornish.
    All it means is we're probably going to have another election within 2 years, great, more bullshit to listen to from insincere toffs who pretend to be progressive, more whispered insults of being bigoted by the so called representatives of the working class, and the torys. Can't fucking wait.

    This is amazing. Although it will create a difficult situation as far as governing the country is concerned. A hung parliament will make it almost impossible for effective government to occur because of the stalement that will occur when trying to get legislation through the house of commons.
