14:23 – Update – With all but one seat declared and a clear but very small Conservative majority, David Cameron has been to Buckingham Palace for an audience with the Queen to ask permission to form a new government. Meanwhile Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage have all resigned as leaders of their respective parties. The full results can be found here.

7:13 – We are not a news source. You know we are not a news source. But it’s impossible to have an opinion without the appropriate context behind it from which it can be formed.

Bearing that in mind, it’s just gone 7am here and it’s time for us to get some sleep. So we’ll leave you with this.

Following a shocking exit poll by the BBC every single poll has been proven wrong. The BBC is now predicting the Conservatives to have 325 seats in the commons. That’s one seat less than the amount technically required for a majority but could well mean that, in practice, the party has enough to govern alone as a de facto majority. More details here.

So that’s it, the results are in and the virtually all the polls were proven wrong. No doubt there will be a lot of confused, angry and disappointed people – and thats just the pollsters. But seriously, in the days, weeks and months to come, right up until the next election infact, a lot of people are going to have a lot to say about the current state of British politcs.
