Turnout was 1,651,825 of 5,206,474, so about 1/3 and BNP got 8% of the vote.
BNP supporters seem unlikely to be apathetic about these things, so it's probably safe to assume that most of them turned out. Therefore, if all 5,206,474 people actually turned out to vote they would have only had around 2.5% of the vote and not won the seat at all.
It is therefore time to slap anyone
Then again, given I voted for the far left, I suppose I can't really complain about people voting for extremist parties, even if the majority of them were at the opposite end of the spectrum to me.
Other than that it's amazing how little difference this seems to have made to the makeup of the EU parlement. Only 5 changes of seats out of 72! It somewhat demoralising to go out and vote only to find the local MEPs are unchanged.
So much for the predicted swing to the left, but I suppose that was never going to happen.
