UKIP take 32% in European Election

UKIP may have only taken 16% of the vote in Slough in last week’s Local Election, but it has taken a staggering 32% of the vote for the European Parliament.

Nigel Farage

Colnbrook, along with the rest of the South East constituency, is now represented by 4 UKIP MEPs following the count yesterday.  That’s 2 more than in 2009.

The Conservatives came second (31%) and now have 3 MEPs (-1). Labour (15%) and the Greens (9%) remain unchanged on 2009 with 1 MEP each, while the Lib Dems (8%), came in fifth with a 6% drop in its vote, giving it also 1 MEP (-1).

With 15 parties to choose from last Thursday we were certainly spoilt for choice.  An Independence from Europe (1.93%), the English Democrats (0.76%), British National Party (0.72%), Christian Peoples Alliance (0.64%), the Peace Party (0.43%), the Socialist Party of Great Britain (0.23%), the Roman Party (0.13%), YOURvoice (0.13%), Liberty GB (0.11%), and the Harmony Party (0.08%) all failed to achieve the minimum 2.5% share of the vote and therefore lost their £5,000 deposit.

Your line-up of MEPs is now as follows:

MEP Party Seat Number
Nigel Paul FARAGE UKIP 1
Dan HANNA Conservatives Party 2
Janice Ann ATKINSON UKIP 3
Nirj DEVA Conservative Party 4
Anneliese Jane DODDS Labour Party 5
Diane Martine JAMES UKIP 6
Richard James ASHWORTH Conservative Party 7
Keith Richard TAYLOR Green Party 8
Catherine Zena BEARDER Liberal Democrats 9
Ray FINCH UKIP 10

The turnout in the South-East was 35.4%, and there were 10,118 spoiled ballots across the constituency.
