Socialists Take A Hit In European Elections

The Wall Street Journal has a country-by-country summary of the European Parliament elections.

The UK results are astonishing; the Labour Party, which holds a solid majority in the UK parliament, came in third among Britain's delegation in the European Parliament.

MEP Daniel Hannan thinks it's time for UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown to go.

Update: Andrew Ian Dodge has some observations on the British side of the elections aftermath at Pajamas Media.

Update: Via Andrew Sullivan, the majority of those who voted for the British National Party are (quoting Sully) "disaffected labour voters."
