    though not as strange as the candidates for the Brexit party.

    I can’t wait to see how many of the rich shyster’s bizarre list are elected. The results are announced on Sunday.

    quite a few by all accounts, as there’s something called the d’Hondt system which ensures that the MEPs elected bear little relationship to the MEPs voters want (really :yes:   :yes:   :yes: ). They even elected a couple of BNPers at one election.

    Meanwhile, time for an investigation by our fearless Sherlock. I’m sure he will come up with unique conclusions.

    I have made a promise to myself not to reply to your angry obsessional spam regarding Brexit and your creepy obsession with me :yes: but I will make one last exception for this one.

     

    I voted for Brian.

     

    Go Brian!

    I voted for Brian.

    Go Brian!

    Quelle surprise!

    Brian has refused to say whether he’ll move from France to the North-East, or anywhere in the UK, if elected.

    Who can blame him, when or if brexit goes ahead?

    Yes, of course I voted for a NE MEP, despite living in the NW.

    It must be true, because some idiot or other, said so.

    I voted for UKIP.

    The Brexit Party is a joke.

    This is an unavoidable consequence of proportional representation, it is a terrible system.

    I absolutely agree on this, Drac.

    It’s not a democratic way of going about things. The best it can do is elect a Parliament  which reflects the proportion of votes cast for a party. PR is a totally undemocratic way of choosing a government.

    But the d’Hondt system used for Euro elections does neither.

    It doesn’t choose a government at all, because the EU government is chosen by other means – democratic in a sense, but very indirect.

    It certainly doesn’t choose a democratic parliament. An incredibly complex system – someone explained it to me clearly, and it boggles the mind.
