Last EU election results

Pro leave
Brexit Party. 29 seats gained
UKIP. 24 seats lost.

Not so much a massive gain as a change of name. Only 5 seats added in reality.

Pro remain
LibDem. 15 seats gained
Green. 4 seats gained.
SNP. 1 seat gained.

So, from the last EU election, the leave parties added 5 seats. The remain parties added 20.

Pretty difficult to spin that in any other way than more people swung to remain than to leave.
