The Pro-EU group won!

Nearly all the commentators are viewing the Euro election results the wrong way round. In the UK the electorate is split into two camps; approx 70% are broadly in favour of the EU and 30% are against it. The 30% voted almost exclusively for UKIP, hence it won the majority of the seats. It is the pro-EU vote that is split three ways - Con/Lib/Lab. Now if the pro-EU parties would stop fighting each other and field a single list of candidates then this new amalgamated party would be topping the poll.
