Got a postal vote for the next one. Seeing as you have to go down the list, who's worse out of UKIP, the TUV and the DUP? :scratch:

Why do you have to go down the list?

You don't have to, but in theory, you should go as far down the list as you can. The last NI Euro election went to the 8th count. I suppose if after selecting your own preferences, you come to the conclusion that the remainder are all equally despicable, you may as well stop.

I start at the bottom and work my way up. Fill in who I would least like to see elected and see who is the last man standing. Last time it turned out green number one. Never voted Green before so this could be a new trend.

What is the vindictiveness of this Lara Whyte about? A real misandrist or what?

I see that Naomi Long managed to get elected in NI. I also see that Martina Anderson was praising the electorate in NI for electing 2 EU Remainers. Strange turnaround for SF who previously used to advise everybody to vote no in any EU or indeed EEC related treaty referendums etc. All of a sudden they are pro-Europe.

Down here SF are taking a kicking. I spoke to a few folk who would be core SF supporters and they told me that they and many other core voters are getting fed up of SF and their new found SJW ways. SF are well on the way to becoming just another one of the fringe whinger parties in Ireland(26 county) Next General election they'll most likely manage to get less than 10 seats unless some crazy Brexit related ballix happens in the meantime to make folk think SF have the answers - I'd argue any such folk should be locked up for their own safety and the safety of the rest of us. :D

Martina the bomber claimed SF had told some supporters to vote Naomi 1 to get her in, personally I think that was an excuse which suited them as they got fewer votes than they expected, probably defectors because of lack of Stormont and the Lyra McKee murder.

I see Boris has to turn up in court to answer claims he was lying about the UK giving the EU £350 million per week.

If this type of thing catches on you'd probably have to shut down the parliament or at least move it to court buildings. :D :D

it depends how you consider it.

Like a shop say Tesco,s would take in say £3M a day (which could be an average figure with £ 1/2 on Monday and £7M on Saturday) and do not deduct the cost of sales when quoting the figure.

Ie takings are store by store but expenses are paid by head office.

ie Boris could be quoting the gross contribution to the EU not the net. Which is a perfectly legitimate way to state something when both figures are not actually daily amounts and there are substantial timing differences between payment and receipt of money's from the EU.

Revenue receipts from Vat may be frequent and Timely returned to the EU but CAPand other receiptsfrom the EU may be received annually in arrears.
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist
