UK Euro Election results

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/crjeqkdevwvt/the-uks-european-elections-2019

The Brexit party has gone from zero to 29 MEPs
Lib Dems from 1 to 16
Labour from 20 to 10
Greens from 3 to 7
Conservatives from 19 to 4
SNP from 2 to 3
Plaid Cymru, Sinn Féin, and Democratic Unionist Party all stay on 1 each
The Alliance Party from zero to 1
Change UK and the Ulster Unionists stayed on zero.
UKIP dropped from 24 to zero.

However, on the Brexit issue things are a lot less clear-cut - the breakdown on actual number of MEPs vote share is
Anti-Brexit - 40.4%
Pro-Brexit - 34.9%
Conservatives - 9.1%
Labour - 14.1%

I have no idea what any of this suggests about the way ahead in British politics. My guess is that things stay as a total mess...
