She would say that. Suits her agenda.

In 1 poll. That was YouGov. Let’s see what happens and not jump to conclusions.

It’s YouGov and 1 poll. We’ll see.

Which country do you live in? And in what constituency did you last live in in the UK, when, and were you on the electoral register?

Small pro-Remain parties and their supporters seem to think that proportional representation will stop the Remain vote being split in the Euro elections. They're wrong. A mini thread:

What we don't know: - what will turnout be? - what will the Tories say? Anything other than the May line? - how much do old party alliances hold (or not) in this election? - will this only be a proxy-referendum? All really complex to answer just now.

I'm not commenting on that until all of this has calmed down a bit. I am not even sure 27% of the population knows that Farage has a new party yet.

That's a fair point. But that's also why you need robust rules to prevent the worst excesses of that.

The nature of political parties, and the professionalisation of politics, means that happens whether you like it or not. Sadly.

That's a slightly different point. I am not sure if the BBC has not properly looked into EU referendum irregularities because of political pressure from the top, or because BBC EU political journalism is pretty lousy. I tend toward the latter.

Perhaps. But there is also a need for honesty to protect a state's institutions when they are under threat. To look into abuses of the electoral system for example. That inability to separate guarding the state from party political concerns worries me.

Have you voted in Germany before? And had a permanent Wohnungsanmeldung since? If answer to both is YES, then no need to re-register.

Except the European Elections are proportional... so damage is rather limited. Your point would be more valid for a General Election.

The basic problem is this: The highest levels of the British political elite are corrupt. But that they *are* does not conform to the British view of themselves as honest people. So the problem is ignored or obfuscated instead.

Also an EU citizen of one state living in another one can *choose* where to vote, but can only vote once. So I could vote in 🇬🇧 or 🇩🇪, but I will vote in Berlin as that's where I live and are my party. Any questions about how this works? I'm happy to answer! /ends

What about Brits 🇬🇧 and ? The Bundeswahlleiter has a page to help you: tl;dr - the UK is highly unlikely to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement by 22 May, so chances are Brits can vote! 💪

If you think you have not voted, or want to be sure, you need to complete this PDF "Antrag für Unionsbürger1auf Eintragung in das Wählerverzeichnis zur Europawahl 2019" and send it to your Bezirksamt in Berlin:
