On the plus side

Thankfully the BNP failed to win any seats in the European elections, but somehow managed to get 8% in the Yorkshire region. Over 125 000 people therefore voted for them in this region alone. incidentally, Yorkshire and the Humber will be represented by two Labour MEPs, two Tories, one LibDem and one UKIP MEP. Not great, but it could have been much worse.
The BNP and UKIP were the two parties making the biggest gains, with the Tories losing 12% and Labour losing 5%. The LibDems only made a modest 1.2% gain. Well done to the Greens though for getting 2 seats elsewhere in the country.
