Election Exit Poll Gives Conservatives Minority Government
8 June 2017, 22:00
The Conservatives will be the biggest party but short of a majority, the General Election exit poll claims.
If that poll holds, that means that it will be a hung parliament.
The previous two exit polls have been extremely accurate, so it remains to be seen how accurate this exit poll will be.
Iain Dale told LBC's Britain Decides: "If this exit poll holds up, the Conservatives are heading for a minority government. Indeed, it might be that they can't form a government at all.
"I got a text from a Tory cabinet minister a few moments ago. He said 'it is not plausible'."
Conservative's David Gauke told LBC: "Obviously, we would hope for a better result. For the country, what we need is a leadership and a government who can deal with the challenges that we face, most notably Brexit.
"Very clearly, I'm hoping for a better result than that."
