307 seats was not enough for an overall Conservative majority, 22 short of my prediction and a few short of others but nonetheless it's the situation we're in.
Due to the indecisiveness of the British electorate we're now facing more and more talks between the parties in an effort to reach some form of deal.
Nick Clegg came out and said he'd happily support whichever party had the highest % of the vote/number of seats, the Conservatives did so and have entered talks. However, out of the blue today Gordon Brown sticks his oar in and comes up with perhaps the most selfish, anti-democratic and ridiculous of resignation speeches.
He says he'll offer the Lib Dems AV, 4 more months of his unelected self (even after he lost a General Election) and another term for Labour and another unelected premier.
Whichever way it's looked at, Brown has tried to surface from his sunken boat, latch onto the Liberals and block David Cameron's deserved place at Number 10.
It's pitiful that he'd risk national economic, political and social safety just because he was too stubborn to quit on Friday morning. Now we face the threat of not only a non-elected coalition government, but one comprised completely of 'want nots'.
The nation voted in favour of the Conservatives, not enough to give them a parliamentary majority, but still a majority nonetheless and now the losing parties have the audacity to club together and still fall short of the magic 326 number.
How fantastic, we'll end up with a rainbow coalition which incorporates Scottish nationalists and a Green! (If they all join in)
Britain needs a PM and it needs one as soon as possible. If we are without a leader by Friday, the market will start to fight back. If we enter the next week without one it could spell out a very tragic story for the pound.
The Liberals should form pact with the Conservatives to help them through a Queen's speech, giving George Osbourne the chance to reveal the full extent of the Labour debt and then release the Conservatives plans leading to another General Election.
IF Labour end up in number 10 it will be a dark, dark day for the nation and Britain might have to kick the chair from beneath itself before the world aims the revolver.
