    And now Workington. Another significant Conservative gain.

    Nope, I don't live on the south coast, but I know it well. Family connections to Bracklesham and East Wittering. One of my favourite pubs is at Dell Quay.

    Across the north formerly safe Labour seats will fall to the Tories. Not a surprise if you know the area but looking for crumbs of comfort - it will mean that Johnson will have to keep the support of working-class former Labour voters over the next five years. It might make the knee jerk prophecies of public services being cut and cut again a bit overplayed.

    Results do seem to be slower coming though this year.

    I was waiting for the result in the constituency where I live - what used to be a safe Labour seat, now a Labour marginal. According to the exit poll there’s a 99+% chance of it going to the Conservatives. Takes some of the drama out of the result.

    I know it well.

    As for Bracklesham, the last time we visited was on a ridiculously hot day just after the new pound coins came in. My sweetheart thought the dog would like a swim and rushed off down the beach with him, leaving me to sort out the parking fee. The meter didn't accept either of the two coins I had, so I qued up at the ice cream stall with the tenner I had on me, in the hope of getting some change the machine would accept.

    It took a long time to get served and when my time came, the girl handed me the three icecreams I'd asked for, then told ne she didn't have any change. She handed me the icecreams then ran down the road with my tenner to get the change.

    By the time she came back, and I'd put the coin in the machine. my sweetheart had returned with a wet dog, the icecreams had melted down my arm and that was that.

    Time to move on before the shops shut early on Sunday.

    It's life, but not as we used to know it Jim.

    Well if you're in Jo Swinson's seat you've got a new MP.

    My constituency should be declared in the next half hour or so but i think I'd be surprised if the current MP lost the seat.

    As predicted, we still have Dougie Chapman, and the SNP have gained seats with the Tories losing them. Gutted but not surprised at the English result though. Bring on the next Indyref.

    Anyone not a Tory is wasting their votes where I live. Roll on PR.

    We need to get the Brexit done before starting the more complicated Scexit.

    We will have the same MP until he’s carried out in his coffin in Selby and Ainsty.

    Our MP, a Conservative, took over from Labour at the last election with a 3000+ majority. He was re-elected with a 8000+ majority. Well done Lee Rowley.

    I do the opposite @Lara mfl 05 I vote for the party that most closely reflects my position politically. It was just once Tory, mostly Labour, but this time Lib Dem. The candidate didn't have a snowballs chance but I used my vote to show that the party had a small piece of lindenlea shaped support. Personalities do come into it too I have to admit, negatively this time though.

    Very happy that the constituency I'm doing my PGCE in stayed red.

    However, for goodness sake, North West Leicestershire! Andrew Bridgen is a disgusting, vile creature.

    Rumour has it that the pub at Del, Quay isn’t as good as it once was. Mind you, I wasn’t that enamoured of the Anchor Bleu at Bosham.

    We have the same MP. I didn’t vote for him and very nearly chose to spoil the ballot paper. It was a close run thing.
