"Despite differing opinions across our city, the fact that the Brexit Party have been rejected here in Peterborough shows that the politics of division will not win", Forbes said in her victory speech.
According to a report of the Daily Telegraph, the Brexit Party claimed that it has 3,000 people prepared to fight for seats in a snap general election.
In a statement posted early Friday morning United Kingdom time, Corbyn said the result showed that despite the divisions and deadlock over Brexit, "when it comes to issues that directly affect people's lives, Labour's case for real change has strong support across the country". Amber Rudd, a current pensions minister and a Europhile, said, "I think it's outrageous to consider proroguing parliament", citing King Charles I, who shuttered parliament in the 17th century, triggering a civil war.
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell tweeted: "A tough campaign won by a superb local candidate and hard campaigning work on the ground".
But Environment Secretary Michael Gove, another frontrunner, is open to other Brexit delay, while Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said leaving with no deal is "political suicide". "Well done Lisa Forbes". Even as the Brexit saga has dragged on and the pressure of a potentially disastrous "no deal" Brexit mounted, no European leader has publicly shown an appetite for renegotiating any part of the 585-page text.
"In effect there are only two real political parties now, Leave and Remain, and we could well be seeing a fundamental structural change in our party system as a result", he said.
Farage played a leading role in the campaign to leave the European Union and his Brexit Party supports quitting the bloc without a deal. "Of course we have made a breakthrough.in an election you will see more of the same and you will see us getting more seats all over the country".
Conservative candidate Paul Bristow tweeted: "It was one hell of a ride! But I don't believe that past mistakes disqualify you". Timing is everything in politics. But any extension to the October 31 deadline must be approved unanimously by the 27 other European Union leaders - and the bloc is tired of Britain's Brexit melodrama.More news: Keanu Reeves just revealed Cyberpunk 2077's release date - 16th April 2020

In a forlorn bid in March to appease the most ardent eurosceptic MPs in her party, May, 62, offered to resign if they finally approved her deal.
"The Conservatives must de-select every MP who will not accept a WTO (World Trade Organization) Brexit if it comes to that".
Boris Johnson, former foreign secretary and leading Brexiteer, is the favourite among 11 candidates to replace May in the two-phase leadership election.
But ultimately her closed style of leadership and Brexit gridlock in parliament doomed her premiership.
Fellow leadership contenders have also shared their reaction.
Corbyn has so far only said the option of another Brexit vote should be kept on the table, along with a national election.
If the United Kingdom is committed to delivering Brexit; and a proper Brexit, not the terrible withdrawal bill that we've got, who are they going to negotiate with? "Failure to do so would not only break our promise to voters, it risks delivering Jeremy Corbyn by the backdoor".
