“This exit poll is remarkable. If true then the Tory’s mandate is seriously in question. Any Green MPs elected tonight will do all they can to keep the Tories from Number 10, and back a Labour-led Government on a case by case basis.

Whatever happens we’re proud that we have worked with others in a handful of seats for the best chance of beating the Tories.”
