It is the first hung parliament for 36 years and the first coalition government since the Second World War.
But hundreds of BBC viewers were left furious because the broadcaster dropped episodes of EastEnders and Holby City to broadcast a news special on Gordon Brown’s resignation.
The programme showed the Prime Minister's resignation speech, detailed the end of 13 years of Labour rule, and David Cameron's arrival and speech at Downing Street.
Be-fecking-Jesus, you could hardly make it up, the fall of their government - okay I know the sort of person who complained is the sort of fat indolent type who has never dragged their blubber to the polling station - even if they never voted for it. Maybe they should put the polling stations in KFC or MC'Donalds branches?
Yet they get upset as their daily routine of pretend characters are taken off air to inform the masses that something of importance has happened.
Do they care? Nope, they just sit there with a blank expression wondering who is that fat Scottish bloke is who is saying he is off and who are these Cameron and Clegg people anyway? Then the anger starts, not the anger that for decades they have chosen to drop out of politics, that they have no voice, have never cared; but the self indulgent 'how fucking dare they remove my telly program for THIS!' anger.
Over a thousand took the time to use their fat KFC grease covered fingers to dial up the BBC and piss and moan about their fantasy lives being inturrupted by events in the real world.
Astonishingly by last night more than 1,000 had made formal complaints to the corporation, angry at the interruption to their television schedule on Tuesday night.
You could not make it up, dictators love people like that. No matter how bad shit gets, give them the modern equivalent of bread and circuses.
Nothing has changed in 2000 years, seriously it was fuckers exactly like these who wasted their lives watching folk die in the arenas whilst the barbarians poured across the Roman Empire to bring it crashing down.
