No. And a bit disappointing for the Greens too?
On the Brexit front, I had the pleasure of witnessing a laughably paltry and dismally sad little "demo" in town the other day with various in-breds screeching WE WANT BREXIT NOW. A passer-by obviously said something sensible to one of the participants because she barked SHUT UP FAT COW in response, so eloquent debate at a premium as ever
I know I've always maintained that anyone who voted leave should be shot at a bus stop, but anyone who voted for the Brexit Party should be INSTANTLY GUILLOTINED
The THICK CUNTS
Excuse me? They’re the most pro-Europe and I want to give my vote to the ALDE group in the European Parliament.
Single issue politics has become the last refuge of the scoundrel. That the majority of this is also patriotism is no coincidence.
Miss Out and About here also witnessed today's spectacle of hundreds of Romanians queuing for HOURS ON END outside Stratford Town Hall, waiting to (I think) cast their votes in the Romanian elections. Not helped by the doors being locked I have to say. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK
Must say that I spied quite a few tasty tubbies (and also someone got their violin out) so MORE ROMANIANS IN THE UK PLEASE
LePen winning the exit polls in France
Oh JESUS CHRIST. Not that VILE BINT!
And talk about HATRIÐ MUN SIGRA. I demand a recount of the public votes for Hatari, which I'm sure were more like 500
10% would easily be their best result since 1989, even if the percentages didn't quite work out for MEP gains.
Oh in fairness, Margrethe Vestager is a spitzenkandidat
Splendidly put, if I may say so
What a woman!
Democracy was served the second the referendum was over. As it was advisory, there was absolutely no requirement to follow up on it. The fact that we've wasted three years and the better part of £100 billion on trying to honour a result won through outright lies and repeated breaches of electoral law is even more galling because of that.
Emily Thornberry QOL
SNP doing amazingly well in Scotland, at what appears to be the expense of the Labour Party who are look like they might be fifth
Looks like my council area voted Lib Dem (Brexit party close second). Greens third, Labour forth, Tories a long way in fifth.
Oh and Change UK finished behind the Yorkshire Party
At least that pint sized cocaine addict “Tommy Robinson” didn’t get in.
Looks like the Conservatives might come FIFTH in the overall vote share
I'd laugh BUT you know what that's going to mean
Racist France, still racist. No one saw the Greens coming third though
MAGID MAGID IN
Hurrah Edinburgh votes SNP, Lib Dem’s & Greens top 3
I so hope this will send Labour to pure remain.
Ann Widdecombe has been elected
Turnout everywhere about 35-45% - I honestly can't stand people who don't vote.
Conservative WIPE OUT in the SOUTH WEST

Got my Green MEP
Glasgow’s vote is in, and SNP got 43% of the vote. The Brexit Party got less than 10%. Labour came second and Greens third. Lib Dem’s didn’t do so well but when you have the SNP as an option for pro-EU it’s not surprising. So the pro-EU parties get 2/3 of the vote. That’s pretty telling.
Greens coming on top in both Bristol and Brighton, two of the loveliest places I know in England <3
A party doing and saying this would have guaranteed my vote. Lib Dems were the closest to it. They've been resolute in their feelings on Brexit throughout.
I don't know what to take from this at all:
Brexit Party gain 31.6% but UKIP lose 24.2% - a net gain for the 'obvious' Brexit party of 7.4%.
But meanwhile the most active Remain parties Lib Dems, Green and Change UK have a net gain of 21% between them...
The 'middling' parties (with very split opinions within their party on Brexit) of the Conservatives and Labour lose 26.2% between them.
I'm tempted to say that overall that is a clear swing towards Remain really, but it's still difficult to be sure.
Yeah, more of a split than a swing
I thought she did pretty bland in the debate, unfortunately. can't say I miss her in Danish politics though so she better stay down there!
our racists have gone from the biggest to the smallest
And our racists didn’t manage to come second best.
Saw a tweet this morning suggesting that Glasgow polled The Brexit Party's lowest percentage nationally. *proud*
Already sick of Farage's face.
And sick of Boris Johnson too. Someone should tell him that haircut doesn't say "Prime Minister", it says "screaming 'BUT WE WERE STILL LEGALLY MARRIED' at the judge".
