(Worthy News) - Brexit upended Britain’s established political order in European Parliament elections, with both the ruling Conservatives and the main opposition Labour Party scoring their worst results in decades.
Voters backed politicians with clear pro- and anti-European Union agendas, fueling demands for a second referendum on one side of the divisive national debate, and a hard, no-deal split from the EU on the other.

In second place, with 20%, were the Liberal Democrats, who want to stay in the bloc. [ Source: Bloomberg (Read More...) ]
