I just hope that people will respect the will of the electorate this time, and not question the validity of the result if it doesn't go their way.

I surmise that a lot of die hard lefties cannot bing themselves to vote new or old labour and have flipped over to the limp demons.

A better interpretation of the voting intentions in thus far, is that the TEF was a remain majority place in June 2016, and most of the intended votes flagged here are for pro Remain parties, so hardly a surprise.

As has been pointed out on many an occasion, the TEF is not a place where you'll find too many left leaning types.

I don't think this election can give any kind of bearing on any potential general election. For instance the Brexit party wouldn't have anything to campaign for. I'd definitely vote Labour to try to remove the Tories too. I'm sure many would vote Conservative to try to keep Labour out also.

It's obvious the Brexit party are going to do well in this one coming up. People that believe we should leave the EU will vote for them. All rather pointless though as they will have zero input in any leaving negotiations.

90% of those voting brexit party in the euros intend to vote for them in a general election. This party is not just for the euros.

People are idiots then, given the lack of anything tangible policy wise.

Green for me. I'm hard remain, but couldn't vote for the LibDems. Their backing of austerity was what got us into this mess in the first place.

I like the attitude of a guy I spoke to who said that he voted remain in the referendum to decide if the United Kingdom should leave the European Union. He then said he will vote for the Brexit Party on 23rd May 2019 and would vote for the UK to !eave the EU in, please not, any second referendum on EU membership. His reason being that democracy had previously been scuppered by the denialists.

Iím quite certain The Brexit Party policy is exactly what it says on the tin? Iím also pretty sure that Farage mentioned something about a manifesto coming out after the EU elections ready for the general elections but Iíll bow down to those who follow politics better than me and happily be corrected.

I'm assuming the brexit issue will be resolved by the next GE, a dangerous assumption granted

Farage said manifestos are old style politics. He has no intention of issuing one. He is the old style politician....an autocrat from the 1930s who simply rouses the rabble and shouts down opposing voices. He is profoundly dangerous. If the country votes as it seems it will, then you ain't seen nothing yet in terms of chaos.

No, over spending got us into austerity.

Yes, the government spent £500 billion on bailing out the banking system.... a classic case of socialism for the rich and neoliberalism for the poor, the Americans followed suit, as this was a global problem.

Unsurprisingly no banker was ever brought to court.... you try not paying your Council Tax, even local Tory Councillor Heenan, was brought before the beak for his non payment.
