Labour tops European election polls in Slough

Labour defied its national returns by coming top in Slough’s European election results.

Jeremy Corbyn’s party took 8,917 votes, well ahead of the second-placed Brexit Party on 5,954.

The Liberal Democrats finished third with 3,412 votes while the Tories picked up a mere 2,148.

The only other party to break

into four figures were the Greens on 1,539.

Change UK took 816, UKIP finished on 554, the UK European Union Party hauled 188 and the Socialist Party of Great Britain

had 46.

The three independent candidates took fewer than 100 votes between them.

The turnout in Slough was just 27.2 per cent compared with 37 per cent for the UK as a whole.

Slough is part of the South-east region.

    Everyone I know voted for the Brexit Party or didn't vote at all. It's very important to vote (in Slough) so that your name and address can be crossed off at the polling station and then someone doesn't go in "on your behalf" at the end of the voting day, with a bag full of fraudulent postal votes. Slough is famous for fraudulent postal votes, so destroy your ballot paper if you like, but don't just stay away from the polling station. Someone unscrupulous and less lazy than you will have you down as a Labour postal voter.
