    Well, there's nothing like another hot dose of steaming contempt to make those potential Brexit Party voters think twice.

    Nobody will vote for Farage. I promise.

    You can't vote for individuals in European elections - you have to vote for a party list.

    Sure, but how many would vote for the Brexit Party if he wasn't associated with it.

    Splitting the vote means they both will not access seats.

    That could be like asking how many would vote Conservative if Theresa May wasn't associated with the party. :(

    Unlike the Brexit Party, The Conservative Party is full of well known established candidates with established track records in government.

    Can anyone actually Explain what the Brexit Party are actually for?

    I mean i know what they are against (thats easy, we can all do that) ....checked the website and there's a little here's our candidates bit but its all just waffle about fighting back against democracy blah blah

    What are you actually voting for, surely it cant't be just for a bunch of clowns to go over and disrupt right ? i mean thats not where we are right ?

    It will be a spoilt ballot paper if they try. People can only vote for the Brexit Party list. It is not possible to vote for individual candidates. EU ballot papers look like this:

    Leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement. They have no other policies and no manifesto.

    so forgive me but how is the MEPs job to do that? surely its an MP's job? unless they are wanting the EU to have power over the UK parliament......o_O

    so if elected how will they enact that aim?

    One of our local TV people took on a local UKIP candidate and failed woefully. The UKIPer was even able to tell him to stop being aggressive. Of course, I don't understand why our local racists are big friends with English Nationalists who would sell us off as soon as they got the chance.
