Labour to win on reduced majority

We can only go on feel, but in Britain they have an exit poll with suggests Labour will win, but with a reduced majority. The first results are in about an hour and a half. If the earlier extrapolations are accurate then HOward will have done extremely well in pinning back the Labour majority to something within striking distance of another general election. But we’ve seen these kinds of extrapolations shift quite substantially in the past. I’m heading home to watch the result programme until I fall asleep – probably within about 20 mins.
