I don't see what the problem would be with that?  The vote was probably along similar lines among the % of the population you would likely find "decision maker" type roles in the economy and Politics, so that is fair.  Also, the point of the programme is to press those people on their thought process, is it not?  So it serves well - provided the questions being asked are representative of "the people".

So some votes should be worth more than others?!

What value should be given to the opinion of economic migrants to the United States of America? $$$$$$$$

I assume you are setting aside the disparity between pro EU MEP's appearing (none) and anti-EU MEP's (loads of times although that includes Farage's monthly slot!
The stats I quoted were the Beeb's own.

Some should cut off more than that to help stop them from breeding.

I had a coffee this morning outside the offices of KKE - The Communist Party of Greece.

It was surprisingly busy!

Eh?  I m saying the people asking the question should be representative of the opinions of the nation.  The panel is there to provide "expert" responses - or be shown up to have no reasonable response and the people they select from are likely more remain then Leave.  If they don't allow tough question of them (I have no idea) then that is a different matter.

USA - I indeed have no right to an opinion.  It is against the law for me to vote here.  It's not my country so that seems fair enough to me, at least until I make a permanent commitment, at which point I am allowed to vote (Permanent Residency or Citizenship).

I'd always assumed that the only reason Grayling kept his job was because May was shit scared of losing any more ministers, given the large numbers who've resigned. But it would seem not. Which begs the question, just how shit (as opposed to disloyal) do you have to be to be sacked by May?

I don't think its how shite necessarily, I suspect more how much does May need to distract from the truth would be a truer description.

And a reminder to all TEFers (although I'd hope none would be needed) that it's local elections today - get out and have your say on which group of incompetents gets to run the town even further into the ground for the next few years ....

You highlight the problem very succinctly. Thinking of going green as a protest vote!

Sadly we don't get the option up here this year, although we do get Tommeh Waxy-Lemon on the EU elections paper!

I've never known such a low key local election... I guess it's to be expected.
