Traditionally a Labour stronghold, the party’s confused position on Brexit has seen their vote share drop by 10 percentage points to 18%, with a similar story for the Conservatives who now rank in sixth place, polling at just 7%.
Should the night of the 23rd May play out as the polls suggest, Nathan Gill and James Wells of the Brexit Party would secure seats to the European Parliament.
