You may have heard, there’s an election on. Since we’re into the closing stages, comms2point0’s resident political nerd Will Mapplebeck does some myth-busting and fact-finding about the big day.

What are we likely to wake up with on 8th of May?
It’s probably coalition time again, but this time it may take more than two to tango. Labour and Conservatives may get between 270 and 290 seats each so it’s likely to take a number of parties to get over the magic mark of around 326 which gives you a majority even though, in practice, you’ll probably need fewer seats to function as a Government. Remember, just because if either Conservative or Labour get the largest number of seats, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will go on to form a Government.
