European Election Results 2009: Yorkshire and the Humber

The European Elections 2009 took place under the shadow of the Westminster MPs’ Expenses scandal.

The Yorkshire and the Humber Region saw the election of the first member of the BNP (British National Party) to the European Parliament. This unfortunate – even scary! – development serves to remind us that the traditional parties are failing to inspire and motivate people to participate in the political process.
