Even more Euro election data crunching

First, the B*P. They secured 15%+ in Barking & Dagenham, Stoke, Thurrock, Rotherham and Barnsley, and bottomed out at 1.31% in Gib. Once again our fellow citizens in those parts show thir robust good sense. Stirling was the weakest point on the mainland at 1.52%

Moving swiftly on, the Christian Party spoke to the wee frees and so forth in the Western Isles, winning a 9% share in those parts. Selby best stand by for some missionaries, as they polled 0.73% there.

The English Democrats made some headway in Doncaster (9.4%) and Dartford (9.4%), but are going nowhere fast in Kensington & Chelsea (0.5%). I had a look at their website the other day, and their published policies would fit on a fag packet, using normal handwriting. 183 words. I just tallied them. Go on, try to make me a liar.

Jury Team failed dismally in Gib (I'm warming ever more to the place) at 0.08%, with its 'breakthrough in South Tyneside - 1.61%. Gib didn't rate Libertas either - 0.04%. Hambleton in Y&H was more impressed ar 1.34%. While Ganley and co mean well, I for one am glad that they have stopped spamming me.

Gib also gave the ragbag coalition of far lefties trading under No2EU a bronx cheer at 0.17%. Coventry and Liverpool were keenest on collective farms and the like at 4.25% and 2.96% respectively.

Scargill's Socialist Labour Party will have realised that the revolution is a good deal further than a T-shirt away in East Dorset - 0.22%, with Knowsley a happier hunting ground at 4.48%.

United Kingdom First (no, I've never heard of them either) mustered 0.27% in West Berks, but 4.67% in South Cambridgeshire.

Elsewhere, the SPGB, for which I have a sneaking regard, having read 'The Monument', managed 0.45% in Haringey, 0.43% in Lewisham and 0.12% in Kingston and Kensington & Chelsea. They only stood in London. This is the party that sets such a premium on ideological purity that they have been known to tell voters only to vote for them if they agree with their entire manifesto. I am NOT making this up. Said book can be found for circa £20, and that is the best 20 quid you will ever spend on a book detailing the history of a far left groupuscule.

The Khmer Vert bottomed out at 3.13% in Gibraltar, with the people of the Rhonnda almost equally unimpressed at 3.38%. At the other end of the scale, they narrowly topped 20% in Islington, took 22.8% in Hackney, 24.9% in Norwich, 26.1% in Oxford and a bone-chilling 31.4% in Brighton. Hope all those Guardian readers / students etc enjoy year zero if it comes.

I *might* run some figures to discover the most left wing place in the UK later on.

bronx cheer

Haven't seen or heard that phrase in a very long time!

Entertainingly on these figures it's us in Gib who top the Not A Bunch Of Loons division.

Somehow that calms me.

BE - I'm doing my bit to rig up a few old words and phrases to the ventilator and see if I can coax a heartbeat out to them.

Geoff - Please take a bow on behalf of the level-headed citizens of the Rock.

Indeed.

That would be your stoat, yes? Anyway, pleased to hear it.

Lemons - well, in the right place. They set off a G&T quite nicely.
