Labour’s collapse tonight could be every bit as bad as they fear, from campaign anecdotes. In Chesterfield, I’m told Labour activists quietly defected in the last week to start handing out Lib Dem leaflets.

Shame London doesn't declare until 2am.

Presumably bad news until then (for remainers).

I'd prefer London first then go to bed and see the carnage in full tomorrow.

The one thing the parties will fear is that you can see from results coming through that Brexit party can top areas, which in these elections is cancelled out if Lib Dems and Green, say, also do well.

But in FPTP they could win seats.

Obvs last Euro elections weren't replicated in the GEs

It's not FPTP though. It's closed list unless you're talking about future GE

Good example in Cardiff
Tonight’s #EuroElections results from #Cardiff are in. They are
Brexit Party - 21,077:
Lib Dems/Democratiaid Rhyddfrydol - 20,799:
Plaid Cymru - 20,047:
Labour/Llafur- 17,297:
Green/Plaid Werth - 8,405:
Con - 6,393:
Change Uk - the independent Group 3,204:
UKIP - 2,164:
Remain wins by miles, Brexit party "wins" the top vote

Yep, this is the sort of thing that will really frighten Labour in any future GE. At the moment every parliamentary constituency in Sheffield is Labour (well was until that tit that replaced Clegg got kicked out)
@britainelects
Sheffield (Yorkshire & the Humber) result:
Brex: 28.1% (+28.1)
Grn: 24.8% (+12.6)
LDem: 18.1% (+8.0)
Lab: 17.0% (-16.6)
UKIP: 3.9% (-23.8)
Con: 3.4% (-7.4)

You can read very little into these elections imo.

Is labour a leave or remain vote? I dunno.

Is a con vote a hard or soft brexit? I dunno

What is a BP vote worth? 50% chance a BP vote is someone so thick they accidentally voted for this party... (I did this with my 3rd pref.... :S

We've been here before.

Once a GE happens, people vote negatively and will vote to keep the party they hate out so won't be voting for Brexit party...unless unless unless it becomes Lib Dems v Brexit party.

More likely to be Concervatives v Labour.

Emma Thornberry being very clear about Labour's policy. Wonder if Corbyn will agree? She is also going hard on Lib Dems?

In remain terms, nothing.

Obviously more widely Lib Dems are centrist, Lib Dems more socialist.

And whilst Labour will get a kicking here, they've ousted a number of Blairites for limited damage.
