You wonder How many Britons will vote ?

Re: The General UK Politics (Past and Present) Discussion Thread

So that's how they do it? Interesting. Here we're so few people we just turn up an dpoint at the person we want to represent us.
Do you have any theory on the number of Britons who'll go  into the small booth, with a voting slip and pen and vote?

Re: The General UK Politics (Past and Present) Discussion Thread

I think a lot of disgruntled Conservative and Labour voters who voted for Brexit will switch allegiance to Farage's new Brexit Party. I expect the two main parties to get a good drubbing at the polls. Such is the price of the failed delivery of Brexit.

Re: The General UK Politics (Past and Present) Discussion Thread

Since this is an election into a union a majority of voters wanted out of and were supposed to have left by now, do you think fewer Britons will vote in the upcoming election? And have I finally found a way to phrase the question that isn't wide open to misunderstandings?

That is an untruth. I have never said any one here was a dictator or anti democrat.

I said goodbye to this thread a while ago as it had largely become a pointless chest thumping, propaganda point scoring exercise (of which I had found myself sucked into) but my comment was removed. This is not my return to this topic, I just happened to look through this thread so as to prove my own decision was the correct one when I saw the above comment.

In the scheme of things, events will be decided by the people of the UK and its politicians and not influenced by what is said (argued) here. I advise everyone to stand by to be proved right or wrong by those events as they unfold and more importantly be prepared to accept the outcome. The EU elections can be looked upon at a reliable litmus test of the measure of pro or anti Brexit sentiment in the UK, a third chance for citizens to voice their opinion on the subject at the ballot box (the other two being the referendum and general election. I cannot include the local elections as the main pro Brexit parties were not standing, neither were the Change UK).   

I will end by insisting that you will please not mention my name again.

Re: The General UK Politics (Past and Present) Discussion Thread

Thank you. It is not that I am allowing anyone to silence me, it is just that I have said all I need to say and am satisfied that my comments and every one elses can be read and put into perspective by others. I may change my mind, but I have no reason to at this time.

The British people will speak on Thursday and what they say will determine who is 'right' or 'wrong'. I can see no more powerful voice than that.

I too was encouraged by many messages and I thank those who sent them.

And I have said "put me in the same boat" which is not the same like directly calling me something.

Just to be clear, I have no intention of posting further on this thread so you have no need to 'worry'. I am not going to engage in personal messages or 'arguments' either. All I ask is that my name is not mentioned any further.

I think we will get figures in the 30% ish of eligible voters turning out to vote, it's hard to call the results accross the whole eu, while some have the traditional left/right centrist parties haemorrhaging support and meps people like Le Pen and the AFD dnt seem to be going as strong as expected, though Salvini is really gathering momentum. In the UK I expect the tories to get a huge beating with a huge protest vote going to the Brexit Party, Change UK have limited following and are looked at as an undemocratic party.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: The General UK Politics (Past and Present) Discussion Thread

I hope the young people, who have been moaning because they have „missed“ the Referendum are pulling their butts out of bed for this time.

These elections are about the EU parliament but will certainly unfortunately be (ab)used by many Brits as a kind of another Referendum and I hope that the young people who moaned since 2016 will now do what they where supposed to do when the first Referendum was out.

30% would be absolutely shameful. I expect a record number of voters here in Germany, last time, the differences between Juncker and Schulz where almost invisible. That‘s not the case now.

2014 voter turnout was 43% EU- wide, Germany 47% and UK 36%
