With all but 20 or so seats still to declare, the likely result of the 2017 general election is projected to look like this:

    Party, seats won [seats before the vote]Cons 318 [330]Lab 262 [256]SNP 35 [56]Lib Dem 13 [8]Green 1 [1]PLAID CYMRU 3 [3] UKIP 0 [1] OTHERS 18

Here’s how the votes stacked up:

A government needs to command at least 326 seats to command a majority of the 650-seat House of Commons. So Prime Minister Theresa May will now need to negotiate with other parties in hopes of forming a government.

She may not be able to. Having thrown away a poll lead of up to 20 points back in April, her own party members may insist that she resign.
