My thoughts on the UK election: https://t.co/9km7vyi53B

I'm actually not surprised. This is what the results mean (in the context of media coverage in the run-up):1. News media have a liberal bias in the UK, especially when the conservatives are in power. I know this sounds like a cliche, but it plays out in AU/NZ every day.2. The swing voters are unhappy with how things are, but they have absolutely zero faith in Labour.3. The Scots were funneled to the SNP by a hard-line Tory and less-hard-line Labour. The Scots have a chip on their shoulder because they perceive themselves as second class citizens, even Scotland as a whole benefits from income transfer.4. UKIP is a joke. Everybody suspected it, and it has now been confirmed.5. LibDem sold their soul to be in power with the Tory, and are now paying the price.This is exactly how I predicted the election would turn out. I do benefit from not reading/watching any UK election coverage though.
