Overall, out of 46 MEPs declared so far, Nigel Farage's party has won 21, the Lib Dems 10, Labour seven, Green five, Conservatives two and Plaid Cymru one.


www.bbc.com...

According to the BBC from 4 hours ago.

What does this mean for the UK leaving the EU? Will these MEPs have any real power to do anything?

UKIP collapsing. Tories collapsing. Labour are having a nightmare, vote down all over the place. Brexit party surging, but then so are the Lib Dems, who are up all over the place - and who have won in Corbyn's own seat.
Landlord, two pints please!



It is my view that the Lib/Dems are hoovering up the Labour/Remain votes?

Nope, no power at all. The European Parliament doesn't work that way.

Pretty much. The Labour Party policy has, to be honest, been so obscure as Corbyn straddles the Remain/Leave divide that it has just confused people. The Scottish Labour vote appears to have just collapsed right now as a result.

What's the point of voting for EU MEPs if they have no power to do anything?

Great win for the Brexit Party! The first time a newly formed political party has won a national election.
Very pleased that the Brexit Party came first in every region so far apart from London. If we don't end up leaving the EU, those results suggests that they may do well in a general election, even using the first past the post system.

It means nothing right now but if it continues as it is going...



Meaning this a bit sarcastically but honestly, think it might get quite mad around here soon. Royal family is needing to speak up way more than they are just now if all is as is taught etc.

Feels planned in my opinion. I don't believe for a second that the folks in charge cannot see the backlash coming, they want it I think, so they can offer the big solution.

Is this a REJECTION of Socialism across Europe?


Polls are all closed. Election results are beginning to come in fast.

The overall result in the European (EU) Parliamentary Election reflects massive gains for conservative nationalists in Italy, Greece, France, Poland, Hungary, Austria, U.K. and others…

Lovely jubbly what a result - tories with worst result in a poll since 1832 lmao, brexit party with as many seats (so far) as tories, labour and lib's combined.


Remains to be seen whether parliament will still ignore us but should be more difficult for them now.

No , it's a rejection of the direction the EU is traveling , it's a rejection of ever closer union and the centralisation of power.

No, the Green left has had massive gains too. Gains to both ends of the political spectrum. If anything, there seems to be a rejection of the centre. Seems the world just keeps splitting into two conflicting ideologies over a roughly 50/50 split. Not going to end well.

No, it's considerably more complicated than that. The UK result seems to be more a case of Remain voters fleeing the two main parties for the Liberal Democrats and the Greens, whilst Leave voters dump the Tories, who had a nightmare of a night.
In other news 'Tommy Robinson' was left humiliated with just 2.2% of the vote in his region. Excellent news!

Highly entertaining watching the results come in last night and equally watching all the commentators spinning it so remain won by a large margin....so much spin that I’m feeling quite dizzy!

People asking what we expect the brexit party to do in Europe are missing the point. We don’t really expect them to do much (although I can’t wait to see how they cope with widders!). The big difference now will be seeing how the big parties regroup and come out fighting. The whole point was to shake up domestic politics and to get our elected politicians to start doing their job and working for the people who put them there. Hopefully we will actually see some proper movement on brexit now. Of course our politicians may well screw it up further but they’ve definitely had a damn good kick up their backsides which should be a massive wake up call. No more sitting on fences, parties must now chose sides and get off their fences. It’s time for real action

Spot on - very funny watching the spin.
Huge win for Brexit has the corrupt media angling for x+Y/z + 2i / 32 + 17 - 4 + x-squared = Remain.
