TORIES were delivered another Brexit Party bashing last night, coming THIRD as the Labour Party held on to their seat by their fingernails in the Peterborough-By-Election, following the Fiona Onasanya scandal.
Sources told TR News that Labour won due to an ‘organized local Muslim vote-bloc along with Eastern Europeans’ that saw off a win by Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party that was initially tipped to win the election.
Lisa Forbes, who is a staunch Corbynista and Anti-Semite, returned the seat for Labour.
Labour won a 31% share of the vote, with 10,484 votes – that’s DOWN 17% on the 2017 election.
The Brexit Party saw a staggering vote share of just under 29% of the vote gaining 9,801 votes, losing by around 600 votes.
Theresa May’s DOOMED Tories took a 21% share receiving 7,243 votes.
Turnout was 48.4%, down from the 67.5% turnout for the 2017 general election.
Lisa Forbes told the BBC that voters had “rejected the politics of division” and backed the “politics of hope”.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage – whose party is less than two months old and beat the Tories said the result was “very significant”.
WHAT DOES THE RESULT MEAN?
It’s now clear that Britain has had enough of the Tories – and even with Theresa May’s resignation last month – voters have not forgiven her party for the utter Brexit shambles the country finds itself in.
It’s staggering that a party set up less than two months ago, can come second in a Westminster vote – make no mistake, the Brexit Party could now be seen as Britain’s ‘official’ opposition to the Conservatives.
Labour won by a mere 600 votes and a sharply reduced majority, this Election was bad for both of the main parties.
