That's their logo?? 🤣
Have you been to their website on a phone? Pop quiz: which is the logo and which is the menu button?

Well remainvoter.com is recommending that people in London and the south-east vote ChangeUK.
It says Green for me, so that's what i'm going to do.

Its useful, in that I was going to vote LibDem.

Their branding does seem to have been done by some particularly inept work experience youth...

How did everyone get on? Contrary to Iris's predictions, we retained our Green MEP and they gained seats elsewhere.

I was wrong on how much support the Greens would get, though I don't know if in the SW the support was widely spread or localised.

This is the first time since, I think, my first ever general election (1992 - living in Oxford East) in which I've voted for the candidate who has ended up top in my local area. In EU elections I have usually voted for a winning party, but they've lost badly around where I am. This time, affluent, true-blue Chiltern has seen the Lib Dems lead the vote. And I'm quite proud.

We did well! Got a Green MEP in the East of England, and pushed the Tories into 4th place* and Labour into 5th.

Magic Majid got elected in Yorkshire & The Humber as well! Can’t wait to see him go up against the Farage Fascists in the European Parliament.



(*And the Tories here had a remainer topping their list).

I am also glad that my vote counted but even more glad about this

Looking at the local areas, it appears the Green vote was up across all areas of the South West.

Good.

It is now obvious that the Brexit Party is just UKIP 2.0. With the nasty racist rump of Tommy Robinson bigots being trashed. Labour really need to come up with a coherent policy and stick to it and the Tories are going to fall apart no matter who they choose as their next leader. Although we all knew these things last week.

NuKIP, one might say...

The fun is going to be watching Farage try and hold the Brexshit Party together over the coming months. I foresee early defections and splits.

A dinner party with Claire Fox, Farage and Anne Widdecombe would be interesting.....actually it would be my idea of hell.

Will support for child sexual exploitation become an official Brexshit Party policy?

I believe that it has already been painted by Hieronymus Bosch.

"The Liberal Democrats look secure on 2 seats and the Greens on 1 seat. Neither will get another, so vote Change UK to get a 4th Remainer seat in the Southeast."

Which I find surprising as a piece of tactical advice, since it potentially includes the seeds of its own destruction.
Plus, it was wrong. Lib Dems gained an extra seat in London.


Tactical voting is an artifact of single vote/first past the post. It doesn't seem necessary in a proportional body.

It appears that some of the Tingers have accepted the bleeding obvious: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... a-lib-dems
