The BNP [British National Party] has gained its first MEP in what is shaping up to be an historic Labour defeat in the Euro elections.
Health Secretary Andy Burnham said the BNP win was a “sad moment”. The BNP candidate said it was the “first step to freedom” from EU “dictatorship”.
Labour could be on course to dip below 20% of the vote in what Harriet Harman has called a “very dismal” night.
