Farage wins in United Kingdom but pro-EU parties make huge gains

UK Conservatives' Survival Dependent on Learning From May's Mistakes - Farage

Polls put Nigel Farage's Brexit Party on course for the top spot in the European parliamentary elections, although high turnouts in areas that voted Remain in 2016 fuelled Liberal Democrat hopes of making a stunning comeback and driving Labour into third place.

The Conservatives hung on to the last seat - but Labour's Alex Mayer lost out as the party failed to get enough votes to take a seat under the proportional representation system.

That would place it comfortably ahead of Ukip's winning performance in 2014, when Farage's then party achieved a winning 27.5%.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage leaves a polling station after voting in the European elections, in Biggin Hill, Britain, May 23, 2019.

Britain is participating in the EU election because it is still a member of the bloc, but the lawmakers it elects will only sit in the European Parliament until the country leaves the EU, which is now scheduled for October 31.

The results are in for Tonbridge and Malling, with the Conservatives and Labour suffering badly.

While the Brexit Party has been registered massive numbers in the first results released, Change UK has performed abysmally, despite promises of shaking up the polls.

Theresa May's resignation couldn't please the GBP buyers for long as disappointments from Brexit Party's lead are on the rise.

Both the Conservatives and Labour are braced for a backlash from voters over Brexit as the results of the European elections are announced.

"If we don't leave on 31 October, the scores you've seen for the Brexit Party today will be repeated in a general election and we are getting ready for it".

Other parties reported frustration from voters that Brexit remained a live issue. The Greens, in fifth, picked up an extra seat to take them to four.

"There's nothing hypocritical in being a European but not believing in the EU", he said.

Lowestoft fish merchant June Mummery was one of the successful Brexit Party candidates and promised to take the battle for the region's fisheries to Brussels.

The full North West result is still to be announced.

The Liberal Democrats, who campaigned under the slogan "Bollocks to Brexit", oppose Brexit and want a second referendum to stop it.
