    Former pupil is standing in the EU elections (if they happen) for the Liberals. I will vote for them.

    14 votes for UKIP? We really have so many posters here who are prepared to vote for a party like that?

    Not European I know, but well worth pondering.

    It's the only one aligning with the actual polling ( if we assume UKIP and Brexit party can be interchangeable).

    Although then we'd need to account for the 7% UKIP... so still off...

    I will vote for the SNP

    They show up, they vote, they are informed and they are willing to be scrutinised and engage

    the idea that people (especially teachers) would vote for a party that is there to deliberately disrupt proceedings is staggering :cool:

    Do you imagine that people fill in these online surveys honestly?

    Ditto. I dare say some, at least "do it only to annoy, because they think it teases".

    Your last sentence appears to parallel those you would vote for? Although to be fair to the SNP they have been consistent in their attempts to disrupt Brexit throughout which is a lot more than can be said for the two main parties.

    Interesting to see opinion polling in the last week of April 2014, a month before the last euro elections. (Compared to YouGov 16 Apr 2019).

    UKIP 31% (+3%)
    Lab 27% (-5)
    Con 18% (-3)
    Lib Dem 8% (+1)
    Other 14% (+7)

    Weirdly I cannot find the polling on the survation website... probably not looking in the right place.

    I notice that the new Brexit Party does not have members, only "registered supporters", who hand over £25 to Nigel Farage without any democratic accountability over his actions. Hardly a democracy in action!

    If it is illegal then he will not be allowed to take his party forward.

    Farage effectively "won" the June 2016 referendum. And promptly scarpered. Had he been man enough to face up to what had happened and to create constructive dialogue about what brexit should mean, maybe he could now have a workable brexit that could have been passed. But no, he ran. No responsibility taken.

    And now he's back. And there are people daft enough to vote for the same fool again.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Alan Smyth of the SNP, but I see you missed them off the list.

    Farage was not an MP he had no possible way to direct proceedings.

    Fourteen people on this forum stated in the poll that they will vote UKIP.

    Sargon of Akkad up to his old tricks. Whenever he opens his mouth on the subject of women in any kind of position of authority, what comes out is hateful, intimidating or crass (and usually all three simultaneously).
