    So I'm to assume that UK will still send 73 parliamentarians and an untold army of lobbyists to Brussels?

    Oh well. At least make sure they sit the full term.

    Depends who wins the elections I guess. Lots of very pro-remain figures have said they will stand.

    I am always amazed that people are surprised that when they elect a dictatorial candidate like Erdoğan into power, he acts like a dictator. The question is always can the institution designed to try prevent a return to dictatorship actually stand up to the proverbial attack. I truly hope Turkey can turn a corner.

    If I'm being kind, I suppose those polls were taken before the Brexit party even existed. But they also show how disastrously bad the Labour 'campaign' was.

    You're closer than I was; apparently they registered with the Electoral Commission on 8th February.
    So what's all the talk about them only existing for six weeks before the euros? Anyone would think Farage was lying.

    I guess it's probably the time most people formally recognise them as actually existing and doing stuff, rather than the time they were officially registered on the paperwork etc.
