I should take this more seriously...

but HUNG PARLIAMENT? Really? Oh you Brits with your odd sense of humour and complicated voting system. Also, welcome to to the world of coalition governments. According to Wikipedia, that has only ever happened during wartime?
"Nick Clegg and his Liberal Democrats now have their moment of power, but it will be just a moment. They have failed to win enough votes to carry an overwhelming moral case for electoral reform, yet they have not supplanted Labour on the centre-left. They may pray for the Tory lead to be big enough to leave the decision in the hands of the nationalists, but that seems unlikely. Whatever they decide they may well split over it, and may have to defend at an early re-election. Their recent ecstasy will swiftly turn to agony."
