    I expect the Electoral Reform Society know better than to suggest reforming the politics of Northern Ireland. ;)

    UKIP now because I didn't 'vote' earlier. But I've 'voted' now.

    Yes. On this site on the poll set up by the OP - its 17-17 Leave/Remain

    Based on political parties. But the referendum wasn't a party political vote and many MPs from all parties voted either way because it was a peoples' vote and MPs voted as individual members of the public and not as MPs or party members.

    That poll is a bit like the referendum in that 'voters' can change their mind after the event.

    It just rolls on until you run out of people to 'vote'.

    flip/flop binary.

    Sargon of Akkad was announced as a UKIP candidate yesterday. How anyone can consider voting for the party is beyond my comprehension if they can endorse this type of candidate.

    A party with 500 members and zero elected reps in any assembly, council or chamber.

    You can say the same for Labour. Who could endorse a party led by Corbyn and his associations with dubious organisations?

    They had two seats in the European Parliament in 2009, Nick Griffin blamed UKIP for stealing their votes in 2014. But the poster still did say any political party that would campaign to get us out of the EU. The BNP campaign for that no matter how small their membership is. A lot of people seem to fear the far right is on the rise.
    Not sure how many members Change UK or Renew have who are campaigning to keep us in the EU.

    I know this is not real...but it made me laugh:

    See that is just Griffin's excuse that he uses because he knows it will tarnish UKIP via association and therefore be lapped up by people on the left.

    Might the reality not be that three things contributed:
    1. Griffin's disastrous performance on Question Time?
    2. Griffin's terrible running of the party itself and inability to maintain a fractious bunch of anti-social bigots.
    3. Britain just not being as racist as the BNP would need to sustain their particular brand of bigotry.

    It's interesting how both the far-right and the far-left need Britain to be a racist society for their ideology to flourish. They do have a lot in common.
