We have not had a single candidate round our house this time. I live in a Conservative area (it has been for years). May be the others have thought, stuff it the Conservatives will win anyway and the Conservatives think stuff it this is in the bag we won't bother!

I though about voting for UKIP for the Euro seat because it might be amusing having then in Europe! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Not wishing to confine myself to amusement in choosing which party to vote for, I have now looked much more closely at the programmes of the various parties in Germany and in the UK. My choice in Germany is fairly difficult, because none of the parties here matches my views on all the issues I regard as important. I envy you who are entitled to vote in the UK. I found one such party, and it was not UKIP.

But surely even if we quit the EU as UKIP wish to do then what happens inside the EU will still have an affect on us,even though we're not in the EU anymore.Surely it would be better to stay in the EU and fight our corner so we get the best from Europe.

Went up the polling Station !

Ballot Paper ? Marvellous choice. Tory, Bliar's lot, or Lib Dem !

No UKIP candidate in this area !

Praps I won't bother, then.

I now know I've 'voted' for the party that will have the most 'votes'

The National Apathy Party !

.......Or to put it another way -

I think it should become law that there is a box under the various candiates on the paper, merked.

"NONE OF THE ABOVE !".

To add to my point what are UKIP going to do if they get only one or two seats?They can't get out of the EU as they hope..so are they just not going to turn up,effectivly wasting OUR seat,and meaning that their are less people fighting our cause,or are they going to stay in and contribute...if they contribute i'd like to know what because i haven't seen ANY policies from them other than trying to get out of the EU.
Additionally 60% of our trade is within the EU.Now if we leave the EU surely we're going to lose alot of that trade.They claim we can have trade agreements etc. but they don't need us,and we'd have just turned round to them and say "sorry EU,no thankyou" so they aren't going to want to trade with us...even if we manage to keep 80%(a high amount) of that EU trade we'd only have 88% of our original trade..can you imagine how castastrohic a 12% loss of trade would be?!

The minority of seat holders in ANY Government/Assembly can do one hellava lota damage, young man !

They have a platform to expose many many interesting things.

Corruption might just be one of 'em !

If the UK seperated from the EU, I don't think this will mean we have to stop trading with its member states.
After all, we are an important buyer for all those excellent European imports which we can't live without...like balsamic vinegar! <img src="/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

But would they want/need to trade with us,with our high prices(especially with our high exchange rate at the moment),and also the possibility of a tarriff on us selling goods to them by the EU.So although we might buy goods from them,they wouldn't buy from us.

What's new?

I thought our net imports from Europe exceeded our exports.

Although, not sure if "invisible exports" is taken entirely into the equation.

....and I'm not talking about Invis selling off his record collection on E-Bay! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

If Britain did pull out of Europe.......I hope the countries they dumped.........namely The "Commonwealth"....don't stick their fingers up at trading again with Britain!

That might balance the import-export problem for a while........until more imports realise there is more room for them to take up!

money talks .. europe would not want to up trade barriers with the u.k.. having a bunch of currupt gravy trains twats running around brussels makes not one iota of diference, the big decisions are taken at national level.. this is the ideal situation for a piss taking protest vote.. the council elections will be a truer reflection of peoples current voting intentions...
what influence have we had exactly on europe anyway.. what stunning policies have we put forward that have been adopted continent wide.. if bunging X billion pounds at it for some nice roads to drive on in spain is what its all about than we have been stunningly sucsessful..
oh and of course decimating our fishing fleet and allowing factory trawlers from spain to smack the fk out of our fish stocks..
still at least its a great military alliance.. oh hang on. never mind at least we can get cheap quality food.. er um yes.. well who wanted all that cheap lamb and beef and wheat from Oz . N.Z. canada etc when we can pay up for 76 billion olives we dont want..

I fully agree that we need to support parties which are intent on reforming the EU fishing policies and abolishing the common agricultural policy.
