Very clear that if Labour had been the party of Remain in this election, we would have won (Andrew Adonis)

Re: UK EU Elections MEGA Thread!!! Brexit Taking The Lead!!!
Amid huge swings to Mr Farage, the West Midlands borough of Sandwell - where Labour were almost 15 points ahead of UKIP five years ago - went for the Brexit Party tonight.

The North East was the first region to declare its full results. After voting for Labour in 2014, it went heavily for Mr Farage this time, with the Brexit Party winning two out of three seats and Labour one.

As it's EU elections, it's an indicator on the stance of the public on Brexit, which our leaders have been trying to delay, saying that the public have changed to remain, they obviously haven't.

It could also be a precursor as to the General Election results, as in the past many people voted for the protest vote parties in the EU elections, but not the general elections. However people now think that the public have had enough of the mainstream parties and will carry their vote to the GE, which could be a nightmare for Labour/Conservatives.

It is vote for European parliament..
People across Europe finally got fed up with mainstream politics and narrative being constantly fed for the last years, decades.
So what happened now is that mr. Farage has multiplied.
And in UK he is now leading Politician.

On the other hand.It can not be compered with the USA.And not easily explained.

The only thing that can stop Brexit, Frexit, EastEuropeexit, is reform of EU.Abolishment of bureaucratic parasitic political class and their institutions and new deal based on mutual benefits and interests but representing decentralised union made of sovereign states.True Republic.Not European Soviet Union or United States of Europe.

BBC 1 just live streamed the results from Chelmsford.
When the guy read out the votes for each party the BBC put the party and vote number up on screen.
The Brexit party got almost double the second place party at 604,000 votes.
But the BBC left the Brexit party out of the list. There was a long pause and it still did not go up and then they cut away to a full screen of the announcer.

Also, for every result where the Brexit party is coming out on top, the BBC just start talking about how well whoever is in second place did.
