So vote Labour to get rid of the Tories.
I’m sure you will be keeping an eye on this Nick.

Hi Terry,
The table reflects a seat forecast the full methodology is available on the website;-
http://www.electionforecast.co.uk/
The forecast changes daily as polling information becomes available.
The forecast shows Labour to gain 19 seats, whilst the Conservatives lose 23, and the Liberal Democrats 30. This result would leave the Conservatives as the largest Party (by sixteen seats) returning them to No 10 as a minority government.
However there were 41 Labour MP’s in Scotland before the election but with the SNP forecast to gain 36 seats in Scotland – Labour are forecast to lose 30 Scottish seats. If those 30 seats remain Labour then Labour would become the largest Party and get the keys to Number 10.
So the assumption is that the English and Welsh forecasted gains for Labour are undermined by the losses to the SNP in Scotland. The map on the website gives a clear picture. Election Forecast are the research used by the BBC.

Hope that clarifies
