    Pretty busy at my polling station.
    I normally ask how the turn-out was, but didn't have a chance this time.

    Seems we'll have to wait till Sun for the results.

    Wasn't it a bit crowded in that car with all the other Sir Henry characters?
    Did you have a vote each?

    Why is it hypocritical? MEPs don't generally hold local surgeries, given the size of their constituencies, so why shouldn't he live closer to the parliament in which he hopes to work?

    I note the poor showing for Wilders and his party in the Netherlands.
    Apparently they are pretty bewildered by what is going on in the UK

    His address is given as Trevien, near Toulouse...further from Brussels than his constituency in England... As I said, a hypocrite, esp. given that he stands for the Brexit Party..

    It has just been claimed on the radio that the "Led By Donkeys" group who paid for these anti Farage posters may have spent more than twice the allowed limit for European election spending on them - so they may be getting a knock on the door from the Electoral Commission before long. :eek::eek::eek:

    I think the claim came from the Guido Fawkes group, though, so it may not necessarily hold water.

    Lucky they aren't a political party standing in the elections then...;)

    Oh please. You don't really need this explained to you, do you?

    Yes, because it is not normally considered hypocritical to want to live nearer to your place of work.

    The whole point is that there is a particularly low spending limit (£20,000 in England) on regulated campaign activity during a regulated period for organisations that are NOT political parties. "Led By Donkeys" foolishly revealed that each advertising site has cost them between £500 and £1000 and that they have financed several hundred of them (having raised £438,704 from their supporters).

    So they are in all probability many times above the limit. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    35 respondents to the poll have voted for a climate change denying racist with one policy.

    Any of them care to explain why?

    Yes and why did only 6 people vote Labour?
  18. florian gassmann

    florian gassmann Star commenter

    Do you think they might be more interested in the policy of the party than the man?
    On the other hand, it could just be to wind you up. :p

    There the difficulty might be trying to discover what the policy is. :(

    There weren't 35 respondents. Several of them are duplicate accounts.

    I voted Liberal Democrat and I'm a Labour Party member. My vote was purely about Brexit and I wanted to give my vote endorse a commitment to remain. It wasn't a decision I made lightly.
