Right

Purdah ends when the polls shut in twenty minutes. We won't re-open the old thread as there is so much circular bitchiness on there. This is the new place for your referendum discussion. Please bear in mind this is your "after-result" discussion so please don't dredge up the old arguments.

And play nicely. This thread will be watched and misbehaviour from posters on either side of whatever the result turns out to be will be looked upon gravely.
 
None of the TV companies seem to have commissioned one. Very odd.

Farage has said he thinks remain have "sneaked it", so someone has an exit poll somewhere.
 
Can anyone explain why there's no exit poll?
According to the BBC it's all to do with comparing with historic results and because how the result is counted (every vote counts and not done per area like an GE).
 
It'll be remain I'm 99% convinced of it I'd be amazed if I wake up at 0630 and find it going the other way.
 
No exit poll as nothing to compare it with as last vote was 41 yrs ago & a very different animal being voted on
 
Whatever the outcome will be interesting to see how the Conservatives put themselves back together (if they can) after the divisions created over the last 2 months
 
Its odd isn't it.

First past the post but all one BIG constituency of 42 million voters.

Whatever the result that will be difficult to reconcile. Clearly some irreparable divisions. Not sure how the party will deal with it.

Huge turnout. Pleased about that.
 
I sincerely hope this is the end for Farage in British politics.

- Seven attempts at getting himself into Parliament. Seven failures.

- One seat won for UKIP at the last General Election, a bloke who has been sitting there for years as a Conservative and would have got in on local issues (because he is an excellent constituency MP) regardless of which party he was affiliated to

- Promised to quit the UKIP leadership if he failed to get elected in South Thanet. U-turned on that after about two days

- Losing this referendum despite having the benefit of an ill-informed public with pockets of rampant xenophobia in his favour, plus a Remain campaign more tepid than a badly cooked half time pie at the football, led by a lame duck PM and underpinned by an ever more unpopular Government

We have no place in our politics for someone who plays on division, fear, outrageous statements that push the boundaries of racism to the absolute limit (if you're being kind), a proven failure who lies habitually and has no time for facts, reason, logic or decency. He's a sham of a politician, I hope this is good riddance as there is no value in a UKIP vote ever again. There won't be another referendum. They have no domestic credibility. Time up.

Ah yes, that rings a bell. Exit polls are small samples taken in areas that historically have similar results to the national vote.

I read over here though that banks have paid consultants to poll people leaving polling stations in order to better speculate on the pound. Don't know how much truth there is in that though.
 
I think both sides have conducted themselves extremely poorly.
Remain to win 52/48 according to Yougov
 
City Traders think it's a win for Remain.

If not a lot of Traders are going to be hurting tomorrow morn
 
My TV is in danger until that rodent face cuntasaurus IDS leaves.
 
It is almost certainly true. I haven't seen confirmation but I would be surprised if the City didn't get as much information as possible because tomorrow's currency markets could be anarchic.
 
Wonder if UKIP will accept Farage's resignation this time?
 
I do love the Tyne/Wear counting battle.
 
Meanwhile, if it's a win for the leave camp, I'll likely need to find a new profession :/
