European Elections 2019

The result for the East Midlands returned 3 seats for BP and 1 each for LibDems & Labour. Nothing for the Tories.

Nottingham itself is dyed-in-the-wool Labour but only just managed to beat the Brexit Party 29.7%(down 10.9%) to BP's 25.8%.

Sour-faced Soubry's constituency of Broxtowe voted 35.6% BP with her Change UK only getting 4.7%. That's really sticking two fingers up to her and I see her losing her seat at the next general election.

On the other hand, from Deutsche Welle:

"Germany's major parties have slumped again in the European elections, with the Social Democrats particularly hard-hit. The result could potentially accelerate Chancellor Angela Merkel's departure."
German EU election results ramp up pressure on Merkel's coalition | DW | 26.05.2019
Be interested to hear how AfD have got on? Looks like they are in 4th place, after the Greens?

" The German Greens are the big winners, expected to return around 22 percent of the vote as they nip at the heels of Ms Merkel. The Alternative for Germany are predicted to finish in fourth place with as much as 10.5 percent of the vote. "

If the vibe across Europe is the same, I would imagine they have strengthened their position ?

( I despise Nazis.... I'm trying simply to keep an open mind on AfD. It just annoys me the way the naturally pale pink media in UK habitually refer to them as 'the Far Right AfD'......does Deutsche Welle habitually refer to BP as 'the Far Right Brexit Party '? )

I know it doesn’t directly impact on her as an MP, but the result of the night for me. It completely undermines her contention on QT a few weeks ago that her constituents had “changed their minds” and were overwhelmingly in favour of remain. The lying cow.

In Ken Clarke's constituency of Rushcliffe Lib Dems took 27.3% of the vote compared to BP's 27.2% so nothing between them. Tories came 4th.

From my interpretation of the results for this and the previous EU elections (I could be wrong):

AfD increased their share from 7.1% and 7 seats under the ECR group* in the previous legislature up to 10.8% share and an estimated 11 seats under the EFDD political group in this election.

* ECR - European Conservatives and Reformists Group
EFDD - Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy Group

Absolutely no recognition from Corbyn that he and his party are a big part of the problem and that they have been punished for it.
Or that the massive showing for the BP is effectively a reaffirmation of the wish to leave.

After 371 of 373 counts declared:-

When I got my head down last night it was all about how Wee Nippy was storming home in Scotland and that Scotland was "a nation in it's own right clearly wishing to remain."

Yet they seem to have polled only half a million votes and have no MEPs...

And UKIP appear to have been wiped out.
 
SNP got 3 seats they wont be happy with that looking at the BBC figures they got that due to a split vote which would have left them behind if tactial voting took place, IF BBC can tell SNP have 3 seats then not saying who's got the other 3
How'd she work that out? According to the BBC tally (see above) the SNP have no seats at all, and there's only two counts left in the whole UK that have yet to declare.

The Scottish results aren’t yet formally declared because Western Isles don’t count on a Sunday. The Western Isles results are unlikely to substantially change the numbers.
Without the Western Isles, the BBC reports:
SNP: 37.9%
BP: 14.7%
LD: 13.9%
SCU: 11.7%
SLP: 9.3%
Green: 8,3%
CUK: 1.9%
UKIP: 1.8%
Ind: 0.5%

Not quite
UKIP's vote share is around about the same as Change UK's
Bit of a shocker for the Westminster Splitters Party isn't it?
 
The idiot Soubry woman just been on TV saying we must have a second referendum, how many more times does she need beating before she gets the message?
 
I am not surprised by the results, the lack of campaigning by any party less 1 leaflet from ukip and 1 from Stephen yaxley-lennon in my area was noticeable.

Having said that, the pro-remain parties needed a really clear single issue party like the Brexit party to unite the remain vote, but as usual for our politicians, individual access to the trough was more important than any principle they wanted to claim.

Edit to add: I would even go so far as to say that a 'remain' footing party would have made the result a clear de-facto 'peoples vote' and a solid campaign on those grounds would have done remain a world of good.
Essentially a 2 stranded message:
1) We aren't likely to get a second referendum, let us use these EU elections to tell the politicians what we think
2) Vote Remain Party to tell them we want to stay.

I am not stating my Brexit position, only pointing out that the second referendum bunch have missed an opportunity and shot themselves in the foot over this one.

I've said a couple of times I met one of her constituents two weeks ago at a family wedding. She told me that Soubry would be toast come a GE as she was despised across the constituency. I got the impression then that all Soubry's claims about leavers changing their minds was utter dog toffee.

Are those figures for Scotland only? With hindsight I imagine that the BBC table (showing a mere 3.6% for the SNP - a but different to 37.9%!) is for the whole UK. They've still for eff all MEPs, though.

How many MEPS have UKIP got now as opposed to how many they had yesterday morning? Remind me...

Did she not notice that people in at least three constituencies had the opportunity to do a BP-equivelent for remain by voting for The UK European Union Party? And largely didn't* (surely not put off by most of their candidates not being of these shores!)...

Mind you, quite funny that wimmins lib' got more votes than one of Bugsy's pet parties.




* Be interesting to know where they stood and what the total electorate that they exposed themselves to is.

Don't get me wrong, I find the not so slow demise of UKIP quite entertaining. I am merely pointing out that despite UKIP going full on mong, they still achieved the same(ish) vote share as ChangeUK.

I honestly thought UKIP might disappear entirely but they got a bigger vote share than I expected.

Also, quite clearly their 3.3% can be added to the The Brexit Party to give a percentage of voters who are more than happy to accept a Hard Brexit.
That's the unequivocal bit that everyone is trying not to acknowledge, 35% of voters clearly voted for Brexit by any means, No Deal, Hard Brexit is conclusively acceptable to as many people as Remain.
There is little middle ground here, its either full on Remain or pulll up the drawbridge Hard Brexit that has been voted for, the middle ground is dead.
 
 
If as it look like 50% of the electorate didn't vote, does that indicated that they are not remain / not leave dont give f**k either way

So by default there is a greater majority for leave

Just looked at my local paper, I voted here yesterday and Mrs LePen got 26% of the local vote in my little bit of France, in what has always been a staunchly socialist area up to now.
Manny Macron came second with 20%, that is how pissed-off people are round here and elsewhere.
The EU in its present form will die this winter !!
