I knew that UKIP was polling well, but hadn't realised that their vote was as high as that. The UK optional first past the post system makes results very hard to call unless you know the seats. For example, in Scotland the SNP is threatening remaining Labour seats, while the high UKIP vote need not translate into seats. It depends where that vote is concentrated.
This is the current party position in the House of Commons.
|Social Democratic & Labour Party||3|
|UK Independence Party||2|
|Total number of seats||650|
