Farage: Meeting was business as usual despite election

The UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, has emerged from a meeting in Brussels saying that nothing appears to have changed in Europe - despite the results of the elections.

His Eurosceptic party won the vote in Britain with some 27.5% - while many anti-establishment parties did well across Europe.

"There is a big dissident voice now in this parliament," Mr Farage told reporters, "And yet, I just sat in a meeting where you wouldn't think that anything happened at all."
