Seneca III is monitoring both the European parliamentary elections and the leadership crisis in the “Conservative” Party following Theresa May’s resignation. This is the second part of his report on these events; it includes the latest official results of the EP elections. He’s gone to bed now, so I updated his results table with the most recent information I could find. Apparently Scotland reports its results later than everybody else.
The Tide and Some Worms Have Turned
by Seneca III
Both the Irish and the Dutch released their exit poll details immediately, but for some reason the UK could not or did not, or at least to the public. When she made her resignation statement, May could well have had them and possibly even the result of the election itself, which would have been the final straw that broke her will to remain, and she chose to pass on the poison chalice. Had they been less promising to the Brexit Party then I suspect she would have hung on even longer.
In a strange way I found that situation comforting, because if the results were bad enough from her perspective to force her to chuck in the towel they sure as hell will be good for the country and its future. There’s a way to go yet, of course, but the results do show that things are moving in the right direction (no pun intended).
Monday 27th May 2019 — (Ironically, our Spring Holiday)
The results of the UK EU Parliamentary elections are in. Seventy-three members, known as MEPs, have been elected in nine constituencies in England, and one each in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each region’s number of representatives is based on its population — from three MEPs in north-east England and Northern Ireland to ten in south-east England.

I leave you, dear reader, to contemplate the gnashing of teeth, the torrent of tears and the tearing out of hair amongst the treacherous Legacy Parties and their Civil Service, Media, Globalist and affluent chatterati supporters as they contemplate a very different future come our next General Election.
There is a long campaign ahead. The EU Parliamentary elections were on the whole successful skirmishes for many across Europe as well as in the UK, but they were not full-blown battles. Those are yet to come and the first indications of how they will develop in the UK will arrive with the results of the Peterborough by-election on Thursday 6th June.
Afterword — Amusing but electorally serious report from order-order.com on the 24th
Alastair Campbell [Remainer] is currently on Twitter blowing a gasket about how using PayPal foreigners could fund the Brexit Party. He is demanding the BBC cover the story. Nick Robinson this morning asked Richard Tice [TBP Chairman] about it without any evidence of any foreign funding.
This site’s [order-order] editor is currently sat in sunny Waterford, Ireland. He is a foreign national. He just went on the People’s Vote [anti-Brexit org] website and made a donation:
To make the donation anonymous he gave the name Vladimir Putin.
He used a Euro card from a bank based in Germany.
It went through without any identity checks in seconds.
The editor checked the € account online, the £1 donation cost €1.14.
