Daniel Hannan, a British Conservative MEP, is reporting (via the Telegraph) that the tea party rally he helped organize in Brighton on Saturday was a success:

“Thanks to everyone who came to the Brighton Tea Party, and apologies to those who couldn’t get it. We opened and filled an adjoining room, but it was still quite a squash. The hotel manager told me afterwards that there had been more than 300 people present, not counting those who had had to be turned away. Not bad for a meeting organised with two days’ notice.”
