The results of the European elections show a huge win for the Brexit Party with as Labour and Conservatives taking a battering. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party got 32.5% of the vote in Wales, Plaid Cymru second with 19.6% with Labour in third with 15.3%. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Conservative got 6.5% of the vote. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Brexit Party topped the polls in 19 out of 22 Welsh councils, with Plaid Cymru coming top in Gwynedd, Ceredigion and Anglesey. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Wales will return two Brexit Party MEP’s , one Plaid Cymru MEP and one Labour MEP. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In Flintshire, the Brexit Party came out top with 38% – 15,613 followed by Labour with 15.6% of the vote share in the county – down -12.5% on 2014′ EU election. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Speaking after the Brexit Party surged across the UK Mr Farage commented: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Never before in British politics has a new party launched just six weeks ago topped the polls. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The reason is very obvious: we voted to leave and we haven’t. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Labour and Conservative parties can learn a huge lesson, though I doubt they will. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The new date is October 31 and we in the Brexit Party want to be part of that negotiation.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
