It's people's right to vote in this country. It's supposed to be a democracy.
There’s no way this has been done deliberately. It’s in the interests of the government to let EU citizens vote as it increases the chance of the brexit party losing seats.
It also increases the chances of remain parties increasing their vote.
So it’s a conspiracy iyo?
They should have prepared for this in the event that Brexit went to ****, it's called contingency planning and there's absolutely zero excuse why they shouldn't have been prepared
That said it's not entirely surprising they've cocked it all up as they're not even prepared for an actual Brexit as all they've done since the referendum is figuratively **** in the wind
I don't know, I hope not. I think it's much more likely to be huge incompetence because the government didn't want to put on these elections in the first place and had to rush everything.
If the BP get a landslide, I wonder how long it will be before people start calling it illegitimate and demanding a rerun?
What is your definition of a landslide? I would say 70-80% of the available seats would be a landslide. Any less than 50% we can ignore them.
Might apply for your wifes issue ?
You can just ignore the largest UK party to represent the UK in the EU?
That's what the second form that was filled in was for, so I don't think this was issue.
Well we always did before.
Situation is a hell of a lot different now though.
Sure, it's not like they'll be doing any work. They'll make themselves unimportant soon enough.
If they dont get more than 50% of the seats they are irrelevant. The majority would be against them.
None of them predicted a landslide and if they hadn’t badly adjusted the figures following 2015’s mess they would have been roughly right. I’ll be surprised if the polls are far off come Monday all though turnout could make it interesting I could hardly get my paper in the ballot box when I voted and there was a queue which is unheard of for the euros!
Sorry to hear that Rilot.
Luckily my wife was able to vote — Winchester Council seem to have faired better than some others.
Hahaha,, GUARANTEED !!!
They can shove a rerun.
I voted for Labour.
My sister voted for SNP.
I thought my mother voted for Labour, she always voted Labour just like my grandmother did but when I came back home just a minute after voted in a mobile library van and my mother talked to me about EU election.
My mother said she cant believed Conservative Party screwed everything up on Brexit and lied to the public, finally admitted to me she didnt voted Labour for the first time because she knew Jeremy Corbyn wont be a good Prime Minister, Green Party... nope too much like SNP, SNP nope, Independence nope, Conservative Party nope, Change UK nope, UKIP nope no way she will vote for a fascism and neo-Nazi party, Brexit Party UKIP nope no way she will vote for biggest liar Nigel Farage's fascism and neo-Nazi party ever since Adolf Hitler did in 1920s and 1930s. She is very surprised UKIP and Brexit Party still around and not been destroyed just like British National Party did which is fascism and neo-Nazi party. She voted Lib Dem for the first time ever.
Interesting poll, it will be an interesting night to watch votes counted.
Oh yeah its certainly racking up UK unemployment falls to 44-year low
