Leave wins 52% in the EU referendum in 2016. Re moaners: but not by enough.
Leave wins 80%+ the 2017 general election. Re moaners: but it wasn’t clear.
Leave wins 2019 European elections. Re moaners: but the combined vote of the Remain losers is higher.
Anyone seeing a pattern here?
So the Brexit party get by far and away the majority of seats, but Scintilliant then adds up all the other votes and claims that Remain wins! Labour now claim we must have a second peoples vote ( the first apparently was not valid as it didn't vote remain) but forgive me but which Party, Green, LibDems or Labour at their part conferences accept a conference motion which cam second in the vote from the floor of the conference? Thought that irrespective of the margin of winning the majority won!!
Role on a no--deal exit come October. Until then buy Toyota, Honda not Fiat or Renault, Sth America or Aussie wine not French and good old variety of English cheeses and bin Camembert and Brie!
What a silly billy...You can't understand figures can you?
Brexit party - 31.6% of votes on a 36.7% turnout... which means that some 88.4% of voters chose NOT to vote for the Brexit party...
These results are a clear vote for Remain. The people have spoken. Article 590 must be revoked at once.
UK: 99% counted. Remain parties: 40.4% Hard Brexit parties: 34.9% Conservatives/Labour: 23.2%
Nice bit of spin, considering your region elected more Brexit MEPs than Lib Dems, Frank.
Slow hand clap aside, yes, I wish that could happen. Independence can't come soon enough for me.
Exactly what my Dad said back in the 1979 devolution vote.
Having spent a month touring Scotland recently I can see why they need it - they're a different country. Good luck to them.

Pro EU parties win EU elections over Pro Brexit parties in UK. Brexit party took the UKIP seats plus right wing con seats. Lib Dem’s and Greens surged ahead. Latest polls give remain 12 points over leave. Cons and Lab punished for Brexit. @guyverhofstadt @eucopresident

Oh how I wish that were true.
I have just watched Sir John Curtice on the BBC saying it shows that the nation is as polarised as ever it was and with this I agree.
I think it is definitely true that the remain voters succeeded in sending a clear message that they are still out there.
The real sadness here is that so many people were willing to give their vote to a single trick non-party with no policies and no members.
The most satisfying part was the Tories not just in third place but fourth very often and Labour percent change being often the largest negative. Neither desereved any better.
Only problem is I now have a Rees-Mogg as one of my MEPs, ho hum.
I didn't add them up. I know I'm very talented, but it was the BBC that produced that graphic.
Farage claimed the election was a proxy Brexit vote.
Remain parties polled more votes than Leave parties. Simple.
A second referendum would clear things up...
We are a polarised nation indeed. Those who voted for a racist climate change denier, and the rest of us.
Who are these people who vote for Brexit?
I've only met one in real life. One.
Who are they?
Why won't they admit it?
Why do they hide behind anonymous voting?
Head in sand.
Thanks @magic surf bus . You get it.
I voted Brexit and I was more than happy to do so. (Waits for the abusive comments to follow)
Using these figures ...
Pro Brexit/Compromise Brexit 60.1%
Anti - Brexit 40.3%
And a huge well done to her.
But don’t worry she is not going to be there for very long.
This is not abuse, but a genuine question: why did you vote for a climate change denying racist with only one policy?
UKIP loses 23 MEPS, Brexit Party gets 28 MEPs, dithering mainstream parties lose out to smaller parties with Tories especially punished at the polls.
No alarms and no surprises, as the song says. Business as usual, full steam ahead towards the rocks.
I suspect the European countries' results will be of more long-term significance.
