    Labour finished in second place and is expected to gain around seven MEPs. The Conservatives came third, and is expected to lose seven MEPS, reducing it to just 19 MEPs. The Liberal Democrats finished the night with just one MEP.

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

    Twitter did not take this news well.

    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.

    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.

    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.
