Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course, turnout is also a factor. This wasn't a general election and was the target for tactical voting for several reasons.

As we all know that older, more conservative, voters are far more likely to vote, especially in what are barely even 2nd order elections, it's probable that, at 31%, this was the brexit party's high water mark.

Both major parties will recover their electorate at a General Election. Even at their most powerful, UKIP with Farage were incapable of winning more than a token vote. I can't see that changing even now. Brexit are a one man band and there's a sign that journalist's patience with the Farage evasion bandwagon is growing thin. He'll face a less fawning press and I think he will find that tiresome.

The only thing that will give him comfort is the possibility of Boris as PM, which will probably destroy them.
