UK exit poll

If true then the lasting contribution of the Democratic Unionist Party to UK politics will have been to break up the union. Come in Agent Paisley: Mission Accomplished. 

UPDATE: to be less opaque, with a 12 seat majority, Cameron is eventually going to need those 8 DUP votes, even if he doesn't need them right away. And he'll need them on devolution and EU issues, where he has difficult constraints within his own party.
