I'll be live-blogging and 'tweeting' the results as they come in for the next three or so hours before I go off to bed. Ony 7 or 8 minutes to go until we start to see the results trickle through:
00.15 (Monday) - I'm off to bed. Hope the BNP won't get any more MEPs. Nightie-night!
23.44 - Wales UK. Regional allocation: Conservative - 1, Labour - 2, Plaid Cymru - 3, UKIP - 4. Labour pushed out of top position in Wales to Conservatives!
23.37 - Listening to new BNP Yorkshire and Humber MEP speaking. He sounds frighteningly plausible - has this idiot not read the BNP constitution? Ugh!! Nick Robinson had some comments about the man's background and his past activities - sounds a real charmer! Not!
23.26 - Yorkshire and Humber UK. Regional allocation - Conservative - 1, Labour - 2, UKIP - 3, LibDem - 4, Conservative - 5, BNP - 6. SO BNP have an MEP!! Boo!!! Overall result - Conservative 2, Labour 1, UKIP 1, LibDem 1, BNP 1. What a sad moment for UK democracy!
23.06 - East of England UK. Regional allocation - Conservatives 1, UKIP - 2, Conservative 3, LibDem - 4, Labour - 5, Conservative - 6, UKIP - 7. And no BNP! Hurray!! So Conservatives 3, UKIP 2, LibDem 1, Labour 1 - no change. I repeat, no BNP!!!
22.32 - France - EPP significant rise to 28 (+11), Socialist significant fall to 15 (-13). Good result on both counts! Rise for Greens.
22.17 - Sky News reporting that overall EU turnout for the European Parliament elections estimated at 43%; a record low!
21.42 - results from North-east UK. Regional allocation - Labour 1, Conservative 2, Liberal Democrats 3. So one each from these 3 parties - no change.
21.25 - Poland - EPP up 12 to 28, EUN up 3 to 12(?) - This is the right-wing homophobe crowd that UK Tories want to team up with - Hague speaking. He says they would deny their characterisation (the Polish Justice and Law Party, that is)
21.18 - Austria - EPP stay at 6
21.17 - Germany - EPP down 7 to 42
21.01 - Denmark announced its results - too small to matter (sorry Denmark)
