Brexit hater Guy Verhofstadt shamed after comparing Reform to Lib Dems | World | News

“Britain returns to the political centre after a destructive populist experiment. The damage done is a lesson for the rest of Europe!”

Although the Lib Dems won 71 seats, they secured just 12 percent of the vote share – two percent less than Nigel Farage‘s Reform UK.

It was a point not lost on many social media users, who were quick to deride the Belgian politician.

One posted: “Farage got more votes than Davey. Go figure.”

A second wrote: “Four million votes (more than libs) say otherwise. Thanks to Labour future politics it will be eight next time.

“Farage is playing the long game. He plays the Tories and Labour as he played you. Yet you learned nothing.”

Another person noted: “Guy, the Lib Dems got half the number of votes of Reform.”

With almost all the election results now declared, Reform UK has returned five MPs, including party leader Nigel Farage in Clacton.

During his victory speech, Mr Farage said his aim was to build a “mass movement” to challenge the next general election “properly”.

He’s described a “gap on the centre right of British politics” that he plans to fill.

Yet the new Clacton MP admitted he needed to clean up party’s image after the racism scandals that dogged the latter part of his party’s campaign.

He acknowledged he had to “professionalise and democratise” the party, saying he would “get rid” of some “idiots” who’d been let in.
