The day of the European Election: a chance for folk to put their votes where their mouths are; knowing they can actually vote on issues rather than along tribal lines, and knowing that their vote will count under a PR system. :shock: So for those who want to escape the clutches of "political union"; from a set-up that costs the British tax-payer ?40million per day; makes 75% of our laws, denies us the right to protect ourselves from EU immigration or negotiate trade agreements unilaterally with the wider world, costing us 8% of our GDP; and has the stench of a political gravy train at it's core - there are only two euro-sceptic Parties to vote for. :wink:

Thus demonstrating Paul, just how thick the majority of folk are: this is an opportunity to give all the main Parties a kick up the backside, to show dissapproval with the lot of them, and the majority desire to escape political EU union, without upsetting tribal patterns in the UK elections. :twisted:

What am I supposed to be voting for... just got two polling cards through the door telling us to vote and that has been it :oops:

 

Don't even know who we can vote for so can't even google them :oops:

 

Ok so I must be more stupid than you all thought I was :P:lol:

My guess is that you will get party literature through your door during May, with a final flurry just before June 4th.

 

If last time is anything to go by the ballot paper will have plenty to choose from, mainly parties but the odd independent so that would be the only individual you could vote for, parties have a list system and seats are allocated according to the % vote that they get, the parties then award the seats to their candidates on the list....so for example Robert Atkins is number 1 on the Tory list and is therefore guaranteed to remain an MEP. The pundits seem to think that the Conservatives will have 4 seats, Labour 2 L/Ds 1 and either UKIP or BNP 1. Time will tell as they say.

 

Nominations close on 7th May, so the full list will be available shortly afterwards.

 

Here is a useful website for you:

Is it BNP or UKIP for observer :?::?:

 

Its Liberal Democrats for me, I can not accuse you of not being open if I am not being, since you opened this string I think it is relevant to ask :wink::lol:

 

You've got to wonder if any one will own up to voting for the BNP :wink:

Well I haven't got a clue who to vote for as I've never heard of any of their names :shock:

 

Will they all personally do door-to-door canvasing :wink: so we can all watch their body language when questioned and look into their eyes to see if they are telling lies :shock:

 

PS... just for the record, so I don't appear to be being secretive, I would have voted for Mr Dover.

I've told you - I'll be voting for one of the anti-EU Parties; not quite decided yet, which one will cause the biggest splash! :wink: Diz: the names don't matter, cos it's done under PR on a Party list system, so all you need to do is vote for the Party you want. :wink:

Seems that the voting may be a bit low round this area. Most people I know have said the threw their EU voting forms straight in the bin :shock: cos they have either given up or don't understand what it's all about :shock:

 

I fall into the same bracket but I've kept my card just in case I see the light :lol::shock:

It's ironic, that folk can't even be bovvered to vote at what is probably the most meaningfull election and where every vote counts. :roll: The EU decides on over 75% of our laws; and has a scale of political corruption at it's centre that makes Westminister look like a creche. :shock: With the majority of Joe Public now being euro-sceptic (hence Brown denying us a referendum); the opportunity presents itself for a massive rejection of euro-politics by voting for anti-EU Parties. :roll:
