The election has been framed largely as an ideological battle between The Conservative Party leader Theresa May and The Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
There’s also the little matter of the health of the Union as calls from Scotland’s SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon for a second referendum on Scottish independence seem to hang in the balance with the incoming election results.
Below are the results of the District Magazine Exit Poll on an election considered by boffins and busybodies to be the most important to Ireland ( ..after our one, anyway). Here’s who we met.
