    Early results as predicted...

    Most of the Brexit votes going to the Brexit Party whilst Tory, Labour and UKIP collapse
    Remain votes split between Lib-Dems and Greens

    I wasn't aware it's still 2017.

    There is no negotiating table.
    Just bugger off already and learn mandarin like a good little servant.

    In the UK the Anti Brexit Vote was 40.4% (Lib Dems; Green; SNP; Plaid Cymru; Change UK)
    The pro-Brexit vote was 34.9% (UKIP & Brexit Party)

    ignoring Labour, Tories and Independents

    So, "Will of the people" will now be REMAIN

    You dont understand. Merkel and Juncker have lost. Le Pen and Salvini won...
    So Merkel cannot hinder Brexit any more.

    These were European elections. Le Pen will dominate the scene in Strassbourg since her allies have won in UK and Italy.

    ^ My, how the tables have turned. All of a sudden you need all of the peoples' support to have a legitimate position.

    Fare thee well, Brexit. It was a long and thoroughly unpleasant affair. You shan't be missed...

    Given that he controls as many MPs as I do, he has about the same ability to make demands regarding decisions made in the British Parliament.

    No, but the Referendum wasn't the will of ALL the people either? And it was closer than yesterday's vote.
