Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you count Labour as leave, then you get 58% leave. Not that I think you should.

I think that the result reflects that remain has started to use this election as a proxy for referendum, just as leave has done for a long time with UKIP. However, there's still going to be a sizeable number who vote for party loyalty reasons or because of personalities, and some who vote for policy reasons. Maybe even a few who vote for policy reasons over which the elected MEPs will have influence, you never know.

Not that it will stop the different sides from claiming victory, though.
