“like that weird videogame that you downloaded for free and tried to play once”

AT EXACTLY 10PM last night, Theresa May knew she had f**ked it all up, and there was no coming back from it.

While everyone was reeling from the exit poll, the BBC coverage introduced us to Jeremy Vine – who was standing in a “virtual Parliament” counting out the projections.

And the background graphics left a little to be desired

Later he was trapped inside a virtual Big Ben

And a virtual Downing Street

Please, just release this as a game for retro consoles.

All the serious election stuff was going on, yes, but the election graphics were the only comic relief we had
