Labour is celebrating an excellent set of European election results in the capital.

The party has doubled the number of MEPs in London to four while the Lib Dems have been wiped out.

The results came in this morning at 3am after a marathon wait on the count in Tower Hamlets.

Lib Dem Sarah Ludford lost her seat but refused to blame Nick Clegg’s leadership.

She said: “I think there is only a minority – a couple of hundred people who have signed this petition [calling for Clegg to stand down].

“Of course it wasn't Nick Clegg's fault – the whole party has to take whatever responsibility it has to take."

The Conservatives came second in London with 22 per cent, followed by UKIP’s 17 per cent and the Greens on nine per cent and the Lib Dems seven.

Labour attracted 37 per cent of the capital’s electorate beating the Tories by a massive 310,000 votes and pushing them into third place nationally for the first time in their history.

London results

BNP: 19,246

Conservative: 495,639 – 22 per cent (down 5)

Green: 196,419 – 9 per cent (down 2)

Labour: 806,959 – 37 per cent (up 15)

Lib Dems: 148,013 – 7 per cent (down 7)

Ukip: 371,133 – 17 per cent (up 6)

If UKIP had a full slate of candidates in the local elections they would have easily pushed the Fib-Dems into 4th.

If all the UKIP keyboard warriors need to actually joined UKIP and stand as candidates.

Their activists need to start targeting postal voters and mobilising the disenfranchised that haven't voted for years or never voted at all.

Until UKIP get their membership, activists and candidate base up they're going to struggle to compete with the Lib-Lab-Con in 2015.

You can smell the desperation. This from the BNP website. One hundred quid cash money to spin the BNP massive defeat into something it aint. You can already see it on the Shopper, our resident BNP trolls jumping on the Kippers bandwagon now.


"Are you an official BNP Online Activist yet? As a BNP Online Activists you will have a very exciting and important role in the future of the British National Party.

The role of the BNP Online Activist is to ensure that our messages have the biggest reach possible - all through the power of social media.

Every Online Activist starts the month with 0 points, and, through sharing our links, commenting and 'liking' articles, and by updating their status using our 'key words' the points total will rise, and the more active you are through the social networks, the faster the points rack up, and the more chance you have of being the top Online Activist.

Every month, to show our appreciation and recognise the sterling work of our Online Activists, we are awarding virtual medals and exclusive prizes to our top contributors.

You can get involved by using a variety of Social Networks - Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn. If you already have an account with one or more of these sites, you can link your profile and become a BNP Online Activist right away.

If you do not yet have a profile, you can set one up easily and for free by visiting your prefered network (Twitter and Facebook are the most popular among our current Online Activists) and adding your friends, family and contacts to your profile, then linking your profile to also become a BNP Online Activist.

Each month, on the first, the points total will be re-set, so that all BNP Online Activists get a fair chance to compete and win the top prize for the following month. Don't worry if you're only competing against yourself, remember that you can check your previous points totals under 'My History' in your account.

Future prizes include: £100 cash, vouchers to spend at the nationalist online store Excalibur, membership upgrades, exclusive invites to BNP events, and a free annual subscription to the official BNP newspaper 'The Voice of Freedom'.

Remember, we also have vitual medals for recruiters, re-tweeters, 'likes' and more - keep sharing those links, and your points will soon rack up!

We currently have over 650 Online Activists, who, between them, reach more than 389,500 other contacts - a social revolution indeed. "

ROFLMAO !!

I don't think you're in a position to criticise people for apparently spouting 'BS'. Yes I've commented on other Newsquest sites but nothing regarding the British National Party

You have some delusional attitude whereby everyone who disagrees with you is BNP.

I believe you'll find a simple google search of your name shows posts mostly mentioning the BNP. As I said, you're the only one that mentions and gives free publicity to the BNP on here...

Hello.

With more votes across Bexley, more votes in every ward we stood in Bexley and 3 cllrs breaking though we would say we are the third party in Bexley.

It gets more interesting that that. In all but one ward, we beat the Tories in the labour held wards and beat Labour in the Tories wards.

Anyone who says "Vote UKIP get labour /Tories" is wrong all across Bexley.

We will use these sets of data and plan for next year. We have a massive task but you never know.
