7.26am JB: Nigel Martin elected in Hotspring there, rounding out our new Parliament, and as you heard, some slightly acrimonious scenes where Si- sorry, of course, he's not actually a Sir, Pete Waterman, was once again bottom of the pile, defeated by the Sir Not Pete Waterman Party twice in a row now. Actually, let's just go to this for a second: PW: WHO ARE YOU TO DISAGREE WITH SIR PETE WATERMAN? I WROTE NUKE THE ECOJ! Sir Not Pete Waterman: Look, I don't wa- [PW rushes towards SNPW. The SDP candidate separates the two. PW points at audience.] PW: I keep losing hundreds of thousands of pounds a year because of you idiots pirating the songs I write, and the moment I do anything to try and stop it, you all laugh and vote for him! You're crazy! Thieves! And you just can't not build more railways! You've got to do it, Nigel! Got to do it! Simple as that. There's no economic evidence against building a railway no matter how much it costs. You can't not afford it. You're ludicrous! [PW walks off stage, shrugging his shoulders and shaking his head.] JB: Right. So, anyway, that's the end. Nigel Martin comfortably re-elected in Hotspring, the largest constituency in the country, for the Citizen Alliance. 497 MPs have been elected. Some new faces, some less new. But let's get a final look at the map. Pauline? PA: Yes, we've got the map here: So it might look from that like the Citizen Alliance are the largest party by some way, followed by the Democrats, and then by the SDP, but that's because the SDP are a lot stronger in more densely-populated, smaller seats. You could probably fit all their seats into Hotspring alone, for instance. But here's an animation showing just what's changed compared to the notional results from the last election three years ago. Huge gains there for the Citizen Alliance, from the SDP in the north and northwest of the country - Maien, Fitzon, Maron - and also in parts of Orontes and Sham. But big gains too for Emryc Isla's team from the Democrats in the east. The east used to be Democrat country, but now it's most definitely Citizen Alliance heartland. JB: It's almost like the Citizen Alliance are encircling the country. PA: Yes, they've had a very strong appeal in the peripheral areas, and especially the border areas. Mountains, deserts, oil towns, and also some of the less fashionable commuter suburbs - look at that ring around New Birmingham for instance. It's a real coalition of what Emryc Isla calls the 'unfashionable, neglected, and proud'. RM: What's interesting is how the rural vote has broken down. More marginal farmers have gone decisively for the Citizen Alliance, while Angleter's breadbasket - Dayra, Eastern Berea, Quareytene, parts of Elkhand and Kerkesion - have all stuck by the Democrats. That big blue ball in the centre of the country. PA: That's right, and there is one border area that hasn't gone to the Citizen Alliance - Neolombardia, and the border with Neo-Venetia in the southwest. They love the Democrats' hawkish stance there, and it's fast becoming one of that party's few remaining strongholds. And as for the SDP - our winners tonight, if you can call it that - this is basically a map of their traditional strongholds, plus a few marginals with the Democrats, and minus quite a few seats in Orontes and Sham that they've lost to the Citizen Alliance. Very few seats outside the southwest and the big cities. If the right wasn't so split, then this would be not far off the classic map of an SDP drubbing. But we are where we are, and that means this is enough to come away with the most seats. Will it get them back in power? Who knows? PK: Well, as was said earlier on, what if the left wasn't split? A lot of SDP people will be wondering if things could've been very different if they'd stopped the rise of the CSL, or even kept them at 6% or 7%. JB: And what we can be sure of is that, until something changes, Sam Courtenay will remain Prime Minister. That's how this country's constitution works - until a new coalition is formed that topples him, or he loses the confidence of Parliament or the party or the monarch, then the Courtenay government will continue. It won't be able to do anything of note, but we do actually have a government. Ish. Now, let's see the full results. PA: Certainly. So there's twelve seats in it, and just under 300,000 votes in it too. But going different ways - SDP for the seat count, and Citizen Alliance for the popular vote. PK: This actually puts real strain on the Democrats now. There's no clear winner who they can justify throwing their weight behind on those grounds - if they try backing the SDP because they've got the most seats, then someone unhappy with that decision would point out that the Citizen Alliance have got the most votes. And vice versa. So it's a real quandary for Sue Fareham, and that's what will dominate the news cycles for the days, weeks, or even months to come. JB: Indeed. Interesting times ahead. But this is where we leave you. It's gone 7am, if you've been up with us all night and you don't have to go to work, then I'd suggest you get a bit of sleep. Certainly what I'm doing, and certainly what our excellent team here at Sirion should be doing too - my thanks to them, and to all of you who've stuck with us or dropped in every now and then. If you're going to bed, there'll be plenty of news to go around when you wake up, I can assure you of that. But to sum up, once again, we've asked the Angleteric people who they want to govern them, and the answer is, we don't know. That's all from us - good morning!The theme music plays once again as the camera pans out and the lights dim in the studio, followed by a montage of scenes from the studio and around the result declarations over the night, finishing once again with the ELECTION 2018 title card over the same shot of Parliament House, this time in the morning sun.
