EU elections

Still haven’t decided whether to vote in these or not and no polling card has been sent. I phoned the council and they say ‘they’re being processed’ and will be out in the next few days.

I wonder if they know the EUsceptics and send those ones last – it has crossed the mind.  Anyway, this is our lot:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48081445

Now, in the order they appear on the form, these are the options good people could vote for:

# English Democrats
# The Brexit Party [no manifesto available]
# UKIP
# Tommy Robinson [no up to date information]

There is no Anne-Marie party on that form. Sandwiched between TBP and UKIP is UK European Union Party and I wonder how many people will be waylaid by the name similar to UKIP?

The English Democrats I know not a lot about – I remember them vaguely from Witanagemot days and there was something Toque did not like about them. Must check them out.

Now, Tommy Robinson is listed under that name and I wonder if it is actually him but look how he’s listed by the BBC:

Frankly, that is wicked of the Electoral Commission as they must be aware that the uneducated may well vote as if that is a ticket and the guy above TR is most certainly not of the same politics.

On the form as our council supplies it, TR is listed alone at the end of the ticket – the far right – and as it should be listed alphabetically, then that is another move on their part and this Aslam would be first on the card.

There is a thing called the donkey vote and reverse donkey vote and those who vote straight down the ballot paper would elect this Aslam, while the reverse would see TR elected.

Also – if TBP had listed itself as Brexit Party, they’d be second on the voting card. All these shenanigans of the EC simply reinforce that which our reader Bill says about the pointlessness of registering and/or voting.

    Your non-vote is worth zero when the votes are counted.

    What can you achieve from a base of zero?

    My view is that the only vote likely to have any positive impact is for the Brexit Party – the rest will be also-rans, the more votes are accumulated by the Brexit Party, the greater the chance of our final, if belated escape, possibly a cleaner escape too.

      These are for the European elections, mind. Elections to a parliament that has no power, no abillity to enact, change or alter policy. A parliament that is both pointless and toothless and exists merely to give false legitimacy to the communist dictatorship that is the EU.

      The Brexit part would have no power to change anything in domestic politics. Or European politics, for that matter. All we would do is lump a bunch of people in Europarl who would be excluded from every single meeting, discussion and chummy gathering, who wouldn’t be approached by bribes (as that’s the purpose of the EU) by multi nationals… htey’d just be an expense, collecting money and getting rich off our taxes.

      Hell, we shouldn’t even be holding the pointless things in the first place!

    Only Mohhamads will vote for Mohhamad. It is time a Mr Blair, QC, WMD, Sovereign Knight of Malta, was banned from political activity on account of proven dishonesty to the British people, seeing that beady eyed reptile on SKY turned my gut, does he pay them to interview him? , a woman MP was kicked out of Parliament lying about driving he lied about Iraq, leading to untold deaths is still entertained in Politics. Every trick in the book will be used to stop Tommy Robinson, America has their swamp we have our cesspit.

      Cannot allow Tommy to get more votes than a Conservative, I suspect some ballot boxes will go missing.

        It’s already underway – prevent TR from campaigning

        Tommy Robinson – police “interfering with election campaign”

        Tommy Robinson’s Carlisle rally attracts support, police interference

        Note the phrase young and old use: “He (TR) tells the truth”; No wonder May et al want him locked up.

        Older woman who smelt a rat on TR Jailed then researched TR, well done same here

    The issue for us, individually, is going to be – which will achieve the best result for the indigenous island dweller when we walk into that polling station?
