BNP wins European Parliament seat

Story here.

From the article:

The BNP has won its first MEP in what is shaping up to be an historic defeat for Labour in the European elections.


Labour could be on course to dip below 20% of the vote ...

[Labour] lost 12% of its vote in Wales, where they were beaten by the Tories first time since 1918.

The BNP won its first MEP, Andrew Brons, after gaining more than 120,000 votes in the Yorkshire and Humber region.


The Conservatives won easily in the East of England, although their share of the vote remained roughly the same as in 2004 - as did that of UKIP, which came second and the Lib Dems, who came third.


Elsewhere, in the South East, with half the votes counted, Labour was trailing in fifth place behind the Greens, with Ukip in second place behind the Tories and the Lib Dems in third.

In Scotland, the Nationalists were outpolling Labour by a clear margin in the early results.

LOL @ Gordon Brown.
