21. Those who blamed voter apathy for the party’s win.

#UKIP succeeded because so many people didn't bother to vote.They're as much to blame as those who voted #UKIP etc

Well the European election results are completely depressing. An apathetic country is going to allow Farage to goosestep into No. 10 #grim

24. Those who took the opposing view.

Russell Brand was right there's no point voting as it wouldn't change anything apart from stopping Farage's carnival of arsetwats winning.

25. And those who tried to put the news into perspective.

As startling as the European election results are, the far-right parties still don't have that much power in the EU parliament.

26. But there was one outcome pretty much everyone agreed was a good thing: BNP leader Nick Griffin lost his seat.

You shouldn't make fun of people losing job, but surely we can make exception for Nick Griffin & fellow BNP racists.

I rarely swear on Twitter, but in Nick Griffin's case I will make an honourable exception.
