Very nice!

What are the numbers of seats by party? It looks as though the Tories can form a majority government, but I'm not sure.
Con 252 (-79 from OTL)
Lab 207 (-25)
UKIP 86 (+85)
LD 54 (+46)
SNP 33 (-23)
DUP 5 (-3)
SF 5 (+1)
UUP 3 (+1)
SDLP 3 (+-0)
PC 2 (-1)

So Con+UKIP would be a comfortable majority, but not Con alone. Con+UKIP is also about the only working coalition you could cobble together from this. I think a path to Brexit is very, very possible to imagine in this scenario as well.

I don't know what happened with Lothian either - at a guess, I counted it wrong for 2015. Not redoing that though, I've saved basically none of the side calculations.

I now have the full national result in seats, the map will go up as soon as I've figured out where the levelling seats go.

Code:
Conservative and Unionist Party - 289 (-28 from OTL)
Labour and Labour Co-operative - 273 (+11)
Liberal Democrats - 50 (+38)
Scottish National Party - 20 (-15)
Plaid Cymru - 2 (-2)
Democratic Unionist Party - 9 (-1)
Sinn Féin - 7 (+-0)
Others - 0 (-3)
What, you think anyone else in NI made it over 12%?

Dear me, not even with Sainte-Laguë and it being an entire constituency of its own do any other parties than Sinn Féin and the DUP win seats in Northern Ireland.

I would assume though that there probably would be some valtaknisk samverkan between the Lib Dems and the Alliance, and (maybe) Labour and the SDLP, whereby their leaders get spots on their respective national lists.

Now that is a well-hung parliament.

Looking at the numbers, Tories+Libby Dees gets you over the line, but given that in the Vallasverse the Tories had just paired up with UKIP, it seems like Coalition 2 Post-Brexit Boogaloo would be untenable, no matter if Farron's views on the gays would fit well into UKIP.

Probably the most likely outcome is a) a Bonfire Coalition of Labour, the Liberals, and the ScotNats, or b) a bunch of bickering trying to set that up which leads to another snap election.

The issue with Northern Ireland is that none of the parties there stand a chance of breaking 4% nationally, so the single Northern Irish constituency has an effective 12% threshold. I can't for the life of me imagine them actually implementing this system that way in real life.

The same thing goes for Plaid, and also the SNP, but it's less of an issue with the SNP because they comfortably clear 12% in every Scottish region, so the only thing to worry about for them is not getting any levelling seats.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Would Plaid actually get any more seats without the 12% given the highest number of seats in a Welsh constituency is, er, 5?
