The anti-brexit Lib Dem support surges to second place with twenty per cent of vote, whereas Mr Farage’s Brexit party gained 32 per cent of the vote according to results from nine out of ten UK regions already declared. This is reflecting the polarization of public attitude and rings wake up bells for established UK political parties.
