The BNP have suffered a thrashing at the hands of the electorate, despite fears that the extreme rightwing party would gain a seat in Parliament after their success in the European elections.
Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP, last night said it was "not too late” for his party in Britain, which only recently publicly acknowledged that the Shoah happened.
However the results flooding in from seats and local councils across the UK did not support his statement, with the party returning no MPs and almost half of their candidates said to be facing losing their deposit.
Many Jewish candidates have been celebrating retaining their seats in a tumultuous election night.
Chairman of the Conservative Research Department and former Shadow Chancellor Oliver Letwin has won his seat in Dorset West. He has a majority of 3,923, higher than in 2005.
Speaker John Bercow has held his seat in Buckingham, beating off a challenge by UKIP's Nigel Farage, who was injured in a plane crash earlier in the day. He was not challenged by Labour or the Liberal Democrats.
Jewish candidate Richard Baum saw some success in increasing the Liberal Democrat vote in Bury North, although in third place he was no competition for the only swing seat to the Tories in Greater Manchester.
Conservative David Nuttall defeated strong opponent Maryam Khan for Labour, daughter of Afzal Khan, a former Manchester mayor and co-chair of the Muslim-Jewish Forum.
Far behind Mr. Baum was the BNP's John Maude with 1,825 votes, although stronger BNP results are expected in the constituency's local elections.
The old joke is that when Mao Tse Tung was asked what had been the consequences of the French Revolution, he replied that it was too soon to tell.
Here we are, on Friday afternoon, and we still have no firm idea of the consequences of the results. All three party leaders have spoken, and the ball seems to be firmly in David Cameron’s court (or perhaps I should say Nick Clegg’s) but, as last night itself showed, nothing in this election is predictable.
Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour MP who accused Israel of “war crimes” against Palestinians, has held his seat in Islington North.
Mr Corbyn enjoyed a 3.3 per swing from the Liberal Democrats to the Labour Party, in his North London constituency.
The backbencher, who recently chaired a talk at the Houses of Parliament which compared Israel’s action in Gaza to the Jews' suffering in the Holocaust, now enjoys one of the biggest majorities in London, of 12,401.
Jewish MP Louise Ellman last night held on to her seat in Liverpool Riverside – despite a contest in which she and neighbouring MP Luciana Berger were targeted for their membership of Labour Friends of Israel.
Mrs Ellman benefited from a 0.3 per cent swing to Labour from the Liberal Democrats – meaning that her 59.2 per cent share of the vote was bolstered.
