Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    It should be noted that exit polls suck. They've been completely wrong the last 4-5 elections in the US

    I'm actually siding with the interviewees here.

    It is way too early for the parties to be deciding on their strategy. Especially because a few seats either way cold change things pretty dramatically.

    BBC:
    #
    2236

    Police have been called to polling stations in Sheffield to move people on who've queued for hours to vote and not been able to. Former Hillsborough MP Helen Jackson says the situation is disgraceful and potentially leaves it open to legal challenge if results are close.

    Having to wait hours to vote is alien to me but it happens in the US. However, if you lined up in time you get to vote is the rule. This would be a clear Civil Rights violation here, is it not that way there?
