    Sheesh, can we not just accept Farage lost? It wasn't even that narrow a loss; he lost by over 2,000 votes.

    There's been a report of electoral fraud, and yet no remote suggestion of how that fraud took place. How could fraud take place given the amount of witnesses who observe the ballot counting, and the fact the ballot box is locked until counting takes place?

    I think that's known as "Bradford syndrome".

    If you have autocorrect/predictive, proofread before you submit, this makes no sense!
