Not a bad Euro Campaign result

It is increasingly apparent that our vote and performance at each election is robust. We don't seem to suffer from wild declines like Labour and the Tories. It's a tribute to our solid work to convince voters of the merits of our team and approach.

Just like the locals where we increased our share of the vote to 28%, we've increased the number of seats in the European Parliament.

In key marginals we did especially well taking the lead in a whole host of seats where we are hoping to win at the General Election.

What is especially satisfying is that we fought the campaign on a pro European ticket and, despite what the sceptics say, we didn't suffer. If there had been a clearer focus on the range of relevant and crucial European issues I am confident we could have had a stimulating debate and benefited significantly as a result.
