‘Now leave… or else’: Victorious Farage threatens to unleash his Brexit party at General Election after Tories and Labour are humiliated in Euro vote after failure to deliver on result of referendum
Nigel Farage and his Brexit Party triumphed in the Euro polls – winning at least 28 MEP seats despite being launched only six weeks ago.
Among their triumphs last night, former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe and Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of Conservative Brexiteer Jacob, were elected as MEPs. The Tories suffered one of the worst electoral nights in their history after falling into fifth place across the country behind even the Greens.
But Jeremy Corbyn faced a similar nightmare as his party’s vote appeared to have collapsed. Labour slumped to third, beaten by the Liberal Democrats, after being humbled in strongholds including London and Wales as Remain voters deserted them.
Early this morning the Brexit Party’s share of the vote was 31.3 per cent – ahead of the Lib Dems on 20.3 per cent. Labour were third on just 14.1 per cent, with the Greens next on 12.1 per cent and the Conservatives on a disastrous 9.1 per cent. In his victory speech, Farage threatened to contest a general election if the Brexit deadlock continues, a move that would threaten to obliterate the Tories.
Farage said: ‘It’s also a vote that says 31st October is the next really big day in this process, if we do not leave on that day then you can expect the Brexit Party to repeat this kind of surprise in the next general election.’
