Conservatives win enough seats to form a majority Government

Houses of Parliament

The Conservatives have won enough seats to form a majority government following yesterday's General Election.

At 1pm today, the Conservative Party had won 326 seats, Labour 230, SNP 56 and Liberal Democrats eight, with 18 seats left to declare: 326 were needed for an overall majority.

The results mirror the preference of respondents to a Fleet News poll, which found that 52% of fleet operators felt that a Conservative Government offered the best policies for the fleet industry.

    For years all parties have had a good stab at sorting things out and look where we are today. They have done good and some not so good. They have been given a chance to shine, lets hope they grab it with both hands and do some good for us all. Fingers crossed the Conservative Party can begin to improve the damage that has been done.
