Ann Widdecombe has won one of three seats for the Brexit Party in the South West of England, in what has been a landslide victory across the board for the Farage camp and confirmation that the people want Brexit.
The former MP said the result reaffirms the 2016 referendum and warned that if there was a general election the main parties would face “carnage”.
The Liberal Democrats took two seats, with the Green Party taking one.
Martin Horwood and Caroline Voaden took the two Lib Dem seats, with Molly Scott Cato retaining a seat for the Greens.
The other winners for the Brexit Party were James Glancy and Christina Jordan.
Outspoken Ms Widdecombe said: “It’s very clear… there was only ever one reason for voting for the Brexit Party – and that is what the nation has done, big time.”
“What this does is send a very clear message to Westminster – again – that if they don’t sort out leave, at the next general election both the big parties are going to face carnage.”
“We shouldn’t even be having these elections” she added. “These elections are a clear demonstration of the farce that has enveloped Westminster.”
“I want a clean Brexit and that is where we have to put our pressure.”
The win comes as The Brexit Party has been declared as the most successful British party in the euro elections, shattering the myth that British voters have changed their minds over leaving the European Union.
