The UK election results are all in – 650 seats declared.

Conservatives “win” with 331. Labour, Lib Dem and UKIP leaders resign in “defeat”, a logical yet frustrating consequence of a first past the post system where loser apparently takes nowt. At least in horse racing you get 25% odds with a place.
