well thank you for the explanation
sounds like a right clusterfuck
I mean if Brexit was properly executed it could've been good, or at least good enough.
At this point it's better to re-arrange it since for now all it looks like it's an attempt from the UK to be more special snowflake.
Pirates are really only strong in Iceland
other places p meme
czech republic has had a large pirate movement for a long time
germany's one is still relevant too
tbh if the eu parliament was proportionate to the total population support then pirates would be doing a lot stronger there too
sad to see that where it all started its become a meme though
It all started during when Cameron was pressured by Eurosceptic MPs to do a ref and he wouldn't survive if he didn't and people Boris Johnson would screech and claw at him if he didnt so began the 2016 European referendum. The reason why Remain was at a disadvantage in a hindsight was because A) Cameron wasnt very liked within the country so people were going to vote Yes for the sake of fucking Cameron over and B) Labour since 2015 have been lead by Eurosceptics like Corbs and Mcdonnell (The latter whom is a open eurosceptic) werent very good at campaigning on the national level despite the membership campaigning furiously for the remain vote.
C) The Leave campaign promised these bloated dumb promises like leaving the EU would fund the NHS more and spread these wierd ass "facts" about the EU and had a organizational unity within them.
Laughs in German over representation
stupidest fucking thing ever was this whole eu army thing
like actually kill yourself if you even mention eu army
Yooooo so sorry for big ass necro but i thought it would be fitting to bring up this thread again with the EU election less than two weeks away.
Who you voting for dudes
Gissa tre gånger
But yeah lads dont forget to vote, EU election is more important than you’d think
Första saken min bror och far ville försäkra sig om så fort jag fick röstkortet var att jag inte skulle rösta på V, S, MP, eller Fi lmfao.
Inte som om jag tänkte göra det från början.
Still contemplating a few parties but I think I know atleast which party groups not to support.
Any Pro-Brexit MEP really.
Frans Timmermans for the win
Probably don't wanna trust YouGov. Survation was the only company to get recent predictions right so I'd trust them the most, although I believe their prediction was similar?
Actually Cameron was very much liked by the public and by the party and has a much higher personal approval rating than the party's overall one, source. Cameron wasn't pressured by Eurosceptic MPs but most likely felt the political pressure placed on him by the growing popularity of Ukip which in 2015 received 3.88million votes. This was largely viewed as votes taken away from the Conservative party as the most mainstream rightwing party, source. It is possible that the eurosceptics within his own party did have some sway and Cameron thought he could use this as an opportunity to keep them quiet. Labour were not 'furiously' for the remain vote. According to a YouGov survey 35% of Labour members voted leave and the BBC is reporting the percentage closer to 30%. We've all seen the Brexit bus promises of funding the NHS with EU money, but this isn't a false premise. According to fullfact.org the government spent £8.9bn net on EU membership which could have in theory been used to fund the NHS.
if sweden falls below 50% participation i'm going to have a stroke
Won't vote labour or conservative in this one.
One can't make their mind up about anything and the other has a habbit of shooting themselves in the face, well, both are kinda doing both of those things regardless.
Brexit party advertisements were shredded to serve as cat litter, that's about all they're good for.
Gonna research the remaining parties I can pick from and decide on the Thursday.
i don't know how it looks in other counties but up here the largest major parties are pretty bad when it comes to explaining their EU policies and what their real stance is. Smaller parties are a lot more concrete and usually push it much harder than any of the biggest parties on the riksdag-scale
this video by lemmino helped me get to understanding the pain of european elections
cool youtuber, still i shouldnt care as we'll be poppin off the map when our government decides its time to leave this union
