    Do you think they are being truthful, or are they just trying to wind you up? ;)

    Or maybe they will vote Brexit Party... but that isn't an option on the poll.

    As for the quote, without context and not knowing the question it has no meaning.

    I don't have a vote in this country, as you know, but informal polling among family and friends is looking very good for the Brexit Party, not great for Labour and just awful for the Tories.
    Hard to believe, I know, what with the great job the Tories and Labour have done, that anyone could consider an alternative to two such decent, honourable and competent organisations.

    Sorry, I don't think the Brexit Party existed when I set the poll.

    It would be interesting to see the Brexit Party come to power, take us out of the EU on WTO rules, and then try to negotiate the new trade relationship with the EU. On second thoughts, it wouldn't be "interesting". It would be the catastrophe of all catastrophes, and would make even Theresa May look competent.

    The only catastrophe I see is parliament ignoring democracy to further self-interest.

    From talking to people, the impression I get is that most are taking the local council elections 'seriously' [as in voting for an established party] and using the European Election to show their contempt either way for the Establishment parties. Was in a group of about 16 on Monday and agreement seemed to be anyone but Labour/Conservative.

    I just hope the Remainers get out and vote Change.UK - they are the only party so far of whom I have seen any promise about a second vote - which is my second best option after a parliamentary revoke Art50 vote. - I know it wont have any direct effect in the UK parliament, but it will at least be evidence of the feeling out there in voter land, and just may get Tin Ears to listen, or reach up to Jeremy on his fence.

    There's a joke in there somewhere but for the life of me I can't find it.

    It’s regional PR. So basically it less about which party gets the vote and more about which party gets the vote in which region.

    So votes don’t equal seats - rather like our dear FPTP.

    But votes do equal a three question referendum.

    1. So if labour comes out pro-referendum that makes labour, Lib Dems, green and change equal votes for a referendum.

    2. Votes for Brexit and UKIP are for No Deal

    3. Votes for tories are for the WA.

    The ayes have it, the ayes have it.

    As per usual, instead of intelligent debate on the political matters we get these childish attacks on people. The picture some of you present is not one of academe it is more akin to the silly parliamentary antics that got us in the mess we are now in.

    On that analysis (a good one) then a party from group 1.

    But in all honesty? Like I'm EVER going to vote Tory, UKIP or Brexit! Ha ha ha. That's when you'll know the dementia has finally hit me.

    If you can't see that she is being exploited then you need to think harder. It is all rather embarrassing to watch grown adults pretending to listen simply because she is a child, and a rather unusual one too. It verges on the religious.
