#GE2015: the election on Twitter

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have noticed that there’s been the little matter of a UK-wide election going on, giving Britain’s people the chance to decide who represents them in the Houses of Parliament.

And what an election its been. Now, 56 out of Scotland’s 59 parliamentary seats are occupied by SNP politicians (there were six in the 2010 election), UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Labour’s Ed Miliband and the Liberal Democrats’ Nick Clegg have all stepped down as party leaders, Alistair Campbell said he’d eat his kilt is the SNP got 58 seats, employment minister Esther McVey, er, lost her job and the Conservatives are looking set to bag a majority government, signalling the end of the coalition.

People of the internet, you’ve done us proud. Good work!
