Consequences of Brexit [part 7] Read first post before posting

 Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

Really?

 

Early polls are showing that Labour will be the big winners, the Tories will have their arses kicked and the Brexit Party will struggle to win 10% of the vote not helped by the fact that the anti-EU vote will be split with UKIP.

 

Anyone thinking that this will be a re run of the last EU elections is in for a shock!

Im starting to hope we have to elect MEP`s so we can cause all sorts of grief and problems for the muppets in Brussels by vetoing their important decisions. 

Ey up Penny

 

The Guardian interviews locals in Penistone about Angela Smith. They're having a good old grumble. Are you among them?

Shocking  MP, a traitor , a   Pro european who does not represent the views of her constituents who voted Leave . . she would have got her p45 at the next election even if she was still in Labour.

if they insist we elect MEP`s there will be many ,many eurosceptics elected from England,so we may as well cause as many problems as we can ,and try and destroy the corrupt dictatorship from within before we leave.  

 

The EU are about to be faced with dozens of Nigel Farage`s. 

What, MEPs that don't turn up much?

John Redwood 

Dominic Raab

Steve Baker 

Chris Grayling

Kate Hoey

Jacob Rees Mogg

Iain Duncan Smith

I never stated that it was. Why introduce such a thing into the discussion?

It's not that British people don't want the jobs, it's that the pay and conditions are poor.

 

Instead of attacking economic migrants and labelling British workers as being lazy we should be raising the pay and conditions of ALL workers and massively increasing taxes on employers and big business. 

 

If an employer can't afford to pay a living wage to its workers then it categorically SHOULD NOT be in business. Force out those who are dependent upon cheap EU labour. Drive them out of business. Drive out the exploiters.

I can`t believe I`m reading this, I really can`t. It`s such pie in the sky nonsense that I can`t even think of an adequate reply, other than money doesn`t actually grow on trees.

I'd advise you not to think of this as a Tory/Labour election.  Under the circumstances, it will be seen as a surrogate referendum on the Brexit issue - especially by the Brexiteers.  Remember the point they're constantly making, that 80% of votes in the 2017 GE went to parties that made noises about "respecting the referendum" in their manifestoes.

 

If you're a remainer, you want to be voting for one of the unequivocally remain-supporting parties in the upcoming Euro elections - the LibDems if you're a right winger, or the Greens if you're a centrist, or left of centre.  Any other vote will 100% be represented as giving a mandate for leaving the EU.

 

Remember that the EU elections have a PR element, so votes are much less pointless than in a GE.

So what?

 

It's up to her how she votes in Parliament. She has to represent the interests of ALL her constituents not just some of them!

I presume that any ERG/UKIP candidates who get elected will do a Sinn Fein, and not take up their seats in a parliament whose legitimacy they do not recognise?
