The Green Party finished fourth. The BNP lost both its seats.

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

— Michala Rudman (@MichalaRudman)

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

— Barry Roberts (@silentbazz)

Stewart Lee on #UKIP. It annoys the hell out of #farage so please retweet it as much as possible @Nigel_Farage

— SkyBreakingNews™ (@SkyBreakinNews)

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.

— tom jamieson (@jamiesont)

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.

— Sam Ralph (@SamTheRalph)

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.

— Julie (@MsIntervention)

We Banish you Nick Griffin! #AvadaKedavra

— EntJunky (@EntJunky)

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

— Ian Taylor (@IanTaylorTU)

30. Although we should all take a moment to remember the real victims here.

First the results of the European Parliament election and then I get tomato stains on my camisole. #BadDay
