As the European election results roll in, the Brexit Party’s Ann Widdecombe is coming back to the major British politics, carrying her out-of-date homophobic views with her. The former Big Brother contestant called the result a wake-up call for the Conservative government, which has been thrust into a leadership contest following the resignation of the British PM. “It’s very clear. there was only ever one reason for voting for the Brexit Party, and that is what the nation has done, big time,” Widdecombe said, noting that the next European elections should be held without UK, and the country should have not even taken part in these ones. The Brexit Party has won 29 seats and 31.6 percent of the vote across England, Wales and Scotland, with Northern Ireland yet to declare. The Liberal Democrats are currently in second place with 20.3 percent of the vote and 16 MEPs. Labour stands in third place with 10 MEPs and a 14.1 percent share, with the Green Party on seven MEPs (12 percent) and the Conservatives on just four MEPs (nine percent).
