Election day - just hang us upside down!

If you've switched on the news or surfed the news pages recently, you will know that here in the UK our political parties have been crazy off their feet with the elections which took place yesterday.

I'm not a very political person myself, but have admittedly been sucked into watching the live political debates (first time ever to be featured in history) for the past three weeks. Nothing however could really prepare us for this messed up outcome.

The three main parties - Labour (currently in power), the Tories and the Lib Dems are now fully under the spotlight, probably in equal measure since none of the parties have had a land slide victory. In fact, although the rightist Tory party have gained the most seats in Parliament, they actually haven't got just enough to be accepted as the victorious party. As such, Mr. Brown is still Prime Minister, for now, until something called a hung parliament is arranged.

For my sake, please don't ask me what that means, just yet anyway, as like proabably every body else in the UK, I haven't got the faintest of what is going on.

Oh Lordie.

Lol, Im fed up of hearing about the elections!
A hung parliament is where the main parties can join up with one another to form a coalition government.
Its messy and can cause issues between parties.

However there maybe issues to whether it was a fair vote and it is possible that there will be another election very very soon
