Brexit Party Dominates In EU Elections. Is this a message to the country?
The Brexit Party was the clear winner in the UK’s European elections, with the pro-EU Lib Dems coming second.
The Conservatives and Labour suffered heavy losses, with the former expected to get less than 10% of the vote.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said he was ready to take on the Tories and Labour in a general election.
Overall, out of 64 MEPs declared so far, Mr Farage’s party has won 28, the Lib Dems 15, Labour 10, Greens seven, the Tories three and Plaid Cymru one.
Mr Farage told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “With a big, simple message – which is we’ve been badly let down by two parties who have broken their promises – we have topped the poll in a fairly dramatic style.
“The two party system now serves nothing but itself. I think they are an obstruction to the modernising of politics… and we are going to take them on.”
