Solicitor Emily Waterhouse got in touch with the Guardian to tell us that she had to wait an hour to vote at her polling station, stour space on roach road, in the constituency of Bethnal Green and Bow********************************************.

When Waterhouse arrived at the polling station at 816 she said that were about people i n the queue:

“The problem was there was only one woman there taking the register. I’m lucky my workplace is lenient so I could wait but everyone is trying to get to work. There were about 150 in the queue when I left at 936. ”(****************************************

A protester dressed as Elmo, a character from children’s TV program Sesame Street, was restrained by security guards as she tried to approach Corbyn as he entered the polling station.

As the woman in fancy dress argued with security and police, Corbyn said: “Hello guys, can we stop the arguments please.”

France’s media have been following the UK election campaign closely, and did not take long to draw their conclusions. “Boris Johnson: the liar weakening Europe,” was the front-page splash in the popular Le Parisien tabloid last month.

The paper called the prime minister as “Europe’s bogeyman”, a politician for whom “pretty much everything is either an empty promise, economical with the truth, or a downright lie”.

(****************************************************Ben McPartland(@ McPBen)The French press have cottoned on to Boris. ‘Boris Johnson- The liar who is weakening Europe’. @ le_Parisien (calls) @ BorisJohnsona ‘crafty devil, manipulator but amiable’ and notes that he’s been caught lying numerous times throughout his career … pic.twitter.com / lVnhnsr2Y2 (November) ****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************, ****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************Le Monde said, earlier this week, that neither Johnson nor Jeremy Corbyn looked particularly promising for Europe. The Labor leader was “a leftwing Eurosceptic who views the EU as a capitalists’ club”, it said, “and has never admitted that leaving will jeopardize all his fine promises of a radical social and economic reform”.

But the paper reserved its fiercest criticism for Johnson. “No longer the clown, the prime minister has started to show his true face,” it said. “Brutal; hungry for power; fleeing the public and awkward questions; disregarding parliament; brandishing a nationalism and an arrogance worthy of Trump. ”

For all Europeans, starting with Britain’s closest neighbors and partners, the French, “the entrenchment of a sort of mini-Trump, who dreams of tearing up social and environmental standards and transforming the UK into a tax haven at the doors of the continent, would be very bad news ”.

In its eve-of-election analysis, Libération was equally damning. This was, it said, “a different kind of election, far more than the simple renewal of a democratic parliament. Its outcome will define the country’s future for several generations. ”

And yet the  five-week campaign had been “brutal, packed with untruths and even outright lies, bitter, devoid of substantive debate. It was also, and above all, uninspiring.Boris Johnsonand Jeremy Corbyn have both, for very different reasons, broken all records for unpopularity. ”

So will voters choose “Corbyn’s radical, hard-left program, or the certainty of Brexit on a plate by Johnson? The two leaders both talk of uniting the country after three years of division. But each led a deeply polarising campaign. The chance that those fractures will heal fast looks slim indeed. ”

Not everyone has had to brave the cold this morning as some of our readers outside the UK have been in touch to tell us how they feel watching the election from abroad.

Rory from south London is on holiday in (Laos) *************************************************:

My other half and I are on holiday on Don Det island in Laos for polling day (don’t worry – we voted by post before we left)! Luckily it will be our breakfast time as the results start pouring in so we will be readily refreshing the Politics Live blog. We were at Glastonbury in for the EU referendum and in Goa in for Trump’s election but hoping for a better result tomorrow.

Phil, an English teacher in Hamburg

**************, Germany feels a huge sense of foreboding

Sitting here sipping my cuppa before work as a UK national who has been outside the UK for more than years feeling a huge sense of foreboding. I am disenfranchised for the first time in my life and fear what will happen to us expats under a nationalist Tory government. Please tell me the British public aren’t gonna fall for their crap again. It feels somewhat like an abusive relationship cycle.

Ric, who is in his 21 s and works in online gaming in (Gibraltar) ************************************************ believes this election is about Brexit:

I live on the rock and sent my postal vote last week. I’m enthused by the queues at polling stations in the UK. I think this is the most important election of our generation. It’s often said that this isn’t about Brexit, but ultimately if it wasn’t for the Brexit deadlock we wouldn’t be having an election at all. Of course issues around the NHS, policing and education are important but this election is an attempt at giving us another say on Brexit. In Gibraltar we overwhelmingly voted to remain, we rely on fluidity at our border with Spain, so workers, goods, food and medicine can cross. For me, I think we need another say … and this election is giving us that!

While Spain has endured two inconclusive general elections this year – and remains in the hands of a caretaker government – the country is still intrigued and appalled by the UK’s own political contortions.

In a dispatch from London, El Mundo’s UK correspondent, Carlos Fresneda , discerns a clear drift towards Trumpism.

“Many people see the hostile and belligerent attitude [Boris Johnson] showed towards parliament in his first two months as a taste of things to come,” he writes.

“They fear that, bolstered by the ballot boxes and with an absolute majority, Boris Johnsoncould behave like a true despot and bring about a definitive split from Europe that sees British society lurch towards the US model (after all, he was born in New York). ”

The paper’s leader on Thursday morningis equally blunt. The UK, it says, is “fatally fractured” as a result of Brexit and has succumbed to populism more than any other EU country.

Rafael Ramos, London correspondent for La Vanguardia, has (filed a report) from Tony Blair’s former constituency, Sedgefield.

There he finds that Laborer’s once impregnable “red wall” is looking vulnerable: “A blue tsunami is on its way and it’s being ridden by the blond menace Boris on a surfboard emblazoned with the word Brexit and done out in the colors of the Union Jack. ”For others, the British media’s election coverage is, as ever, a story in itself.

Sergio Maydeu-Olivares, an international relations consultant, has tweeted some of Thursday’s front pages: the Scottish Sun’s call for the last person to leave Britain to snuff out the candles if Corbyn wins; the Mail’s desperate plea to back Boris; and the Daily Record’s call to make Scotland a Tory-free land. ”The UK press is going out on a limb over Thursday’s election – and how,” he writes. “No blushes. No subtlety. Check it out… ”
