My View on the Results of the MEP (Members of the European Parliament) Elections:

This is my article on my view on the results of the MEP (Members of the European Parliament) Elections.
On Thursday 23rd May 2019 the whole of the UK took to the polls to vote for a member of the following parties. Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrats, the Green Party, the Scottish National Party (SNP), Brexit Party, Change UK and many other Independent Parties!
This election was never supposed to happen in the first place as we were supposed to have left the EU by now (on Friday 29th March as planned) but unfortunately we it has been changed from Friday 12th April 2019 to Thursday 31st October 2019.
After all the votes were counted and verified. The results looked like this:
 

Name of Political Party

Number of seats

Seats gained or lost

Brexit Party

29

+29

Liberal Democrats

16

+15

Green Party

7

+4

Labour

10

-10

Conservative

4

-15

the Scottish National Party (SNP)

3

+1

Change UK

0

In my opinion looking at these results I’m not all surprised that both the Conservative and Labour Party lost due to their disagreements on getting a Brexit deal successfully through the House of Parliament. I can understand why many voters who were Conservative or Labour voters for many years had probably switched and possibly voted for the Brexit Party. Even though I voted for Change UK as they were a party of ex Conservative and Labour Party MPs who disagreed with their leaders Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn on Brexit and many other issues and didn’t get a single seat. I’m not really that bothered as hopefully we won’t be members of the European Parliament for very long. Even though the Conservatives and Labour have problems within their own parties. I believe if there is another general election held I bet just like the MEP elections the Brexit Party may possible beat the Conservatives and Labour and who knows Nigel Farage could be our next prime minister after the Conservatives reign over the country for from 2005 up to present but who knows what the future holds for our country?
