42% don't vote!

As counting continued through the night, it looked as
though the overall turnout could be as low as 58%. This compares with 71.6% at the 1997 General Election, which itself was the lowest turnout since the Second World War. It would be the lowest turnout since the election of 1918 when the turnout was 57%. It seems likely that more people will fail to vote than will vote for the Labour Party.
Do they have a mandate to rule?
