Or no current incumbent or pending career politician and certainty nobody from any of the three main English parties.

Iím not bothering voting any more.

whether you vote leave or moan the decision was to leave.

government, no matter what each person voted should have worked together to decide what was best for Britain.

instead we have had 2yrs of pissing around and now, for what ever reason the MPís canít decide on any option no matter what it is..

im done voting..

What's best for Britain is staying in the EU, though, so are you saying they should have just binned the result, or not held it, or that the Leave MPs should suck it up and vote to stay?

Yes, Brexit is utter tripe, which is why Parliament are fighting to stop it. They are doing what's best for the country

I agree, many true colours have been shown and I do not like the look of them. Even our local MP voted against the majority of his constituents, a total c*nt of the highest order. Voting seems a waste of time unfortunately.

I think if Nigel Farage puts up enough seats in a GE he stands a bloody good chance currently - I know its not what most on here want to hear - but that's the reality out on the street.... he's a charismatic leader who stands up for exactly what he believes in..... and it currently resonates with a large proportion of the population - especially with the current mess on a non delivered Brexit - the Tories must be sh*tting themselves as they know whats going to happen...

Like this from SKY News an hour ago:

Nigel Farage's Brexit Party are set to win next month's European Parliament elections, according to a new poll.

The former UKIP leader's party is on 27%, ahead of Labour on 22% and the Conservatives on 15%.

The poll - commissioned by the People's Vote campaign for a second referendum and weighted by likelihood to vote - follows the Brexit Party's official launch last week.

Its findings will heighten fears in Downing Street that the Tories are on course for a damaging defeat that will likely reignite calls for Theresa May to resign.

Britain looks set to take part in the 23 May poll amid the continuing Brexit deadlock at Westminster.

General elections are always won from the middle ground

Farage is like the reason I voted for Blair(oops) despite being brainwashed conservative by parents. Amongst a sea of nobodies he had something. Yes I got that wrong!

Farage is doing the same thing to people who are getting mightily peeved at what is going on with Conservatives and Labour and those two have created a problem. Ignoring the British people. Frustration is now going to give those two plonks no votes and Farage lots

Are you referring to Farage ?

He frequently attends the European Parliament and has often been seen berating them for the way they've disgracefully treated the UK over Brexit.

With that in mind I'd let him have a go with the Cons walking blindly into the abyss and Corbyn trying to turn us into a fascist state and he'd soon shut down Sturgeon

Is 62% attendance frequent?

He makes a lot of noise when he is there, be he doesn't actually do much. He merely strives to abuse the EU system and stifle reform as much as possible in order to demonstrate that the EU is corrupt and unwilling to reform! Oh the irony!

I suspect that Change UK / Lib Dems and the Brexit party will do well in the Euro elections if we have them as people get behind their remain or leave fractions. Labour, UKIP and in particular Conservatives will take a pummeling - probably why they are so against having the elections!

Personally, I think it would be a great loss to the UK not to have any British MEPs during the negotiation period. Although Farage and his cronies do little to help the UK anyway as their only focus is damaging the EU from within.
