Latest news from the European elections

Rumours are reaching me that the Conservative Party has won the popular vote in the Welsh European elections. This is allegedly the first time this has happened in any major election in Wales since 1918.

Labour has retained second place and Plaid has come in third. UKIP, it would seem, have beaten the Liberal Democrats to the fourth seat.

Have just spoken to my better half, who is standing in Cardiff West at the next Parliamentary election.

It would seem that Labour have just scraped the votes in the constituency by around 150 votes from the Conservatives but that UKIP took around 2,000 votes (and you can guess from which party!)

The worst aspect is that BNP allegedly got 800 votes and this is Cardiff West, one of the most cosmopolitan areas in Wales.

More later if I hear anything further
