So . . .
I wonder why every TV radio/station, every newspaper and all news reports are clearly stating a Tory majority.
Correct, mathematically, in this case it is not true. But we live in the UK. In a GE the party which secures the most seats are referred to as the majority party.
If yourself or CJ wish to complain, start by challenging all those media outlets.
I am sure they will listen to you. We'll wait.
