    Desperation is setting in, so in future elections you're suggesting we add up all the losing votes and make them the winners.

    Just seen the news, they've given up throwing mud at Farage because it never sticks, so now they're throwing milkshakes because they do stick.

    Two points that make these recent comments very relevant and kind of irrelevant.
    1 The EU electoral system is Proportional Representation. (PR). That mean that if a party gets 10% of the votes, they get 10% of the seats.
    2. They are EU elections so the result in any one country may have little or no effect on the overall outcome of the parliamentary control, i.e. political direction, EU Parliament President and EU Commission President.

    According to donrkebab
    But clearly I did not.

    So that's yet one more lie that that revolting little liar, who would be banned on any site with a shred of morality, has told.

    1. PR is more representative, thus making the EU election more democratic than the UK general election. Something 'snout in the trough' Garbage glosses over whilst he fiddles his accounts.
    2. Parties band together in the EU, thus countries do indeed have less of an individual influence. But then neither do regions in their respective countries.

    What is ironic is that the UK is a big player in the EU, and under new rules was set to get an even bigger role.
    But when/if the UK leaves, smaller enclaves will gain more influence.

    I think his point is - as a barometer on Brexit there are potentially a few Million that will count this time and wont count next time. (assuming there is a ref2)
