UKIP and Labour will each send three MEPs to represent the north west in the European Parliament, in an evening that saw the Liberal Democrats and BNP wiped out.

Campaigners gathered in Manchester Town Hall to see Labour candidates Theresa Griffin, Afzal Khan and Julie Ward named as the party's advocates in Europe, after they topped the polls in Bolton and the north west.

UKIP also celebrated after Paul Nuttall, Louise Bours and Steven Woolfe were also elected, while the Conservatives returned their two sitting candidates Jacqueline Foster and Sajjad Karim.

Liberal Democrat Chris Davies, who was not present at the count, lost his seat after his party were kicked into fifth place in the region behind the Conservatives and Greens.

Protestors also gathered to see Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, lose his European parliamentary seat - although he vowed the party would be back.

They are most certainly not a protest vote, topping the poll in several regions and even returning an MEP in Scotland.

We want a referendum to leave the EU. When do we want it NOW!

These elections are feel good exercise for population. no matter who wins or
loose, big corporations are ruling us. their aims are to make big buck from
us. to achieve that they buy politicians of all parties. big corporations want us to stay in EU, they want to own every thing, they want us ordinary folks to fight
among ourselves, so they can rob us without us knowing. This going on everywhere. We just need honest leaders.

I think that was a tongue in cheek bit of sarcasm from Thomas222

The BNP wiped out. At least you knew where you stood with these folks.
But with UKIP supporters/voters you just don't know.
UKIP are now the respectable face of far right politics.

Ms Butty, don't you read any newspapers or watch TV? Your views seem, well, rather bizarre. Maybe you are new to our country?
UKIP are now the respectable face of the British people so you and the rest of the SWP/UAF rentamob had better get used to it. It's called democracy.
Well done UKIP onwards and upwards.

You are quite right , UKIP is the respectable face especially when you compare with who you vote for.

About time we had a party who speak for the ordinary hardworking tax paying law abiding right minded citizen. Who in addition will discuss what everyone is thinking but is scarred to say and be labelled racist.

Just as one of the richest men in Texas said, 'Whoever wins the presidential election, we will have our man in the White House'. It is just the same here in Britain, with politics.

Prime Minister now in Brussels after these results.
He won.t get anything except vague promises of change and he definitely will not get back our sovereignty to rule ourselves without interference from Brussels.
They all need to know unless it helps our country that immigration is a priority and not governed by human rights, allowing all sorts to invade the UK along with their families.
I am not surprised as the main parties seem to have been that UKIP has made such a good impression with the voting public.
The main message should be "We want our country back".
