until 12.0 A majority - big or small?
Your verdict at the polls. The fastest and fullest results service. Forecasts and Analysis.
With 200 or more constituencies likely still to declare their results on the day after polling, the nation may be in for a 'cliff-hanger' climax determining the size of the next Government's overall majority. The odds are that the winning Party will tick up the magic 318th seat sometime after midday.
Whether on your domestic set, a car radio, or a transistor where you work, Radio 4 invites you to keep in touch with the latest results with the least possible disturbance to what you have to do.
As in the overnight operation. Radio 4's special Election team concentrates on flashes from constituencies of special interest and interviews with leading Party spokesmen, journalists and personalities from both sides of industry.
