    I'm a member of the Labour Party, having joined after Jeremy Corbyn became leader.

    I shall be voting Green in the EU election.

    I'll vote for the Brexit Party but having said that I'm not sure I can be arsed, and I struggle with the general idea that we are in these elections at all BECAUSE WE WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE LEFT BY NOW. We are only here because of treacherous, anti-democratic remoaners in parliament.

    From another thread:
    Memnoch
    I have in fact sent a query to the Brexit party asking for details on what they plan to actually do. They're running out of time to respond because I'm not going to vote for anyone unless someone gives me a reason.

    Well, I have now received a response. If you can call it that.

    I won't post the whole of my inquiry... a few pertinent excerpts:

    I asked for "...a synopsis of the Party’s purpose in sending UK representatives back to Brussels.
    In particular, what if any influence will you hope to have on the details of our departure...?
    "

    I spoke at some length about the pointlessness of electing an MEP from among the parties currently and recently represented in the UK Parliament and wanted to know why I should vote for a Brexit Party MEP instead... "no point in me voting to send anyone [to Brussels] unless the only other player, yourselves, would be in a position to have an effect on
    A) Making sure we do actually Leave according to the wish of the majority, and
    B) Withdrawing in a manner that doesn’t leave us a member of the EU in all but name...
    "

    I queried the extent of the authority of the EP, and in particular wanted to know... "what have [MEPs] tangibly done and what can they do in terms of legislative initiative? It seems to me they have none."

    I expressed my dissatisfaction with Parliament's and in particular the Tories' handling of our withdrawal and queried what the election of Brexit MEPs would do to improve the situation, closing with "...please, if I’m wrong about the impotence of the EP, explain to me what Brexit MEPs will do to bring about Independence on our terms. "


    I believe these are simple enough questions to be answerable by someone tasked with responding to emails on behalf of a national political party... questions worthy of a robust answer given the context of the most significant event in our political history since Magna Carta.

    Here is the response in full:

    Dear Xxxx,

    'Thank you for your email and support. We completely agree with you and we greatly appreciate all support from the kind supporters like yourself.

    Many thanks,
    The Brexit Party'


    Given that I did not express support, and asked specific questions, and made it clear that my voting intentions are subject to someone giving me a reason to elect a representative to an organization which we are leaving, I'd say they didn't bother to read it and this is a pro-forma. Probably automatic.

    So that's my mind made up, thanks. I won't be voting on Thursday.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.

    Given that you've said you liked the EEC, but not the political union elements of the EU, don't you think that Brexiteer MPs scuppered a deal that would have actually been closer to your ideal, and one in which we would have left by now had it been accepted?

    I won't register or fill in any form so I can't vote. I haven't voted since 2005, I put a notice out to relevant parties that, amongst a great big list of other things, I was going to start my own army, bigger than theirs with bigger weapons and, if they don't knock this shit off, I was going to take over and run the country myself.

    I would much prefer to have the country out, I like having a government within marching distance incase we have to go there one day and take over.

    I've been out of the country for long enough now that I can no longer vote in UK elections.

    I COULD have voted here for this election, but I forgot to register!

    I would have voted AKEL had I got round to it.
