UK - Brexit Party storms to Victory in MEP elections

Videos

The Brexit Party founded by Nigel Farage just six weeks ago has won 10 of the UK's 11 regions, gaining 28 seats in the European Parliament with more than 30% of the UK Vote .

Both Labour and the Conservative Party had a horrible night . Labour won just 10 seats (down from 20 in 2014) while the Conservatives slumped to just three (compared with 19 last time) . For Labour, the party's poor showing has already reignited debate about its policy on a second referendum while The Conservative party's handling of Brexit resulted in its lowest share of the vote in a national election since its formation in 1834.

By contrast, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage who himself has been re-elected MEP for the South East was in high spirits and said a "massive message" had been sent to Westminster.

"Never before in British politics has a new party launched just six weeks ago topped the polls in a national election," he said.

"The reason of course is very obvious: we voted to leave in a referendum, we were supposed to do so on March 29 and we haven't.

"There's a huge message here, massive message here - the Labour and Conservative parties could learn a big lesson from tonight - though I don't suppose that they actually will.

"If we don't leave on October 31 then the scores you have seen for the Brexit Party today will be repeated in a general election, and we are getting ready for it" - said a high spirited Mr Farage .
 

Scotland and Northern Ireland are yet to fully declare.
