Weeks-Old Brexit Party Wins in European Elections

Although British leaders have failed to find a consensus on how to make Brexit work, Sunday's European elections seemed to prove that Brits still at least agree that they want Brexit. Nigel Farage, a leading force behind Brexit who left politics shortly after the successful 2016 referendum, returned about seven weeks ago with his new Brexit Party to try and get the process back on track.

Despite its infancy, the Brexit Party won 31.6 percent of the vote on Sunday. The Liberal Democrats came in second and Labour came in third, while the Conservative Party, the current one in government, came in an embarrassing fifth place.

Farage celebrated the victory, but is already looking toward the general election. He predicted a win if Britain fails to follow through on its promise and leave the EU by the latest deadline, October 31. The original deadline was March 29 but was forced into delays.

Prime Minister Theresa May, whose Brexit plan was rejected by Parliament multiple times, tearfully announced her resignation last week.
