People Are Freaking Out Over The Election Exit Poll

"Oh God."

Posted on

The exit poll suggests that the Conservatives have a large lead over Labour – but not so large that they would have a majority government. The number of seats they need is 326.

If the poll is totally accurate – a big if – the Conservatives can form a coalition government with the 10 seats the much-weakened Liberal Democrats allegedly have.

The other extraordinary thing about this poll is the overwhelming success of the SNP. Last time around they only won six seats.

And the overriding reaction is...

Oh god please no that exit poll

Oh God... https://t.co/CObynD2Xr9

Oh god please no https://t.co/pqoknjbidg

There are also a whole bunch of people who say they're getting ready to emigrate.

If this exit poll is true and conservatives do win, I'm moving to Yemen

Here if the exit poll is accurate i am actually moving to Antartica and not coming back. Ever.

To a lot of different countries.

If that exit poll's right I'm moving to Mongolia

Exit poll. This fucking place. Moving to Sweden.

If this #exitpoll is true fuck it I'm moving to Canada.

If exit poll is correct, I'm moving to Switzerland.

Mind you, Paddy Ashdown doesn't believe it.

This Lord Ashdown guy is threatening to eat hats he doesn't even have! #GE2015

So there's still hope for all these people.
