VAT was required for the EEC and made compulsory for all members and

This change for cross-border services is an obvious fix which has

The four-letter party's MEPs were evidently too busy drawing their

They specifically claim not to take part in EU business.

A strange claim from a party which puts up candidates for election as
MEPs.


Their objective, presumably, is to take the money but not do the job the
are paid to do, in order to undermine the institution.

That's democracy - UKIP got more votes in the Euro elections last year
than any other party.

Apart from the Apathy party.


They didn't get any votes, stupid.

Whoosh !


It may be whoosh to you, but on occasions I haven't voted simply I
vehemently disagreed with elements of the party candidate's manifesto.

If there was a "no suitable candidate" I would have ticked that box.

Bearing in mind I'm dealing with the UK, if a majority of the
electorate on a good turnout was to do so there would be little other
interpretation to be put on it (although you'll probably still get a
scoundrel declared as winner unless a previous unknown manages to
please the majority). It certainly gives a different message from a
low turnout.

The other obvious interpretation to put on it is that
there is no real difference between the candidates
in the sense of what their partys are proposing.

That isnt the same thing as no suitable candidate.

(although you'll probably still get a scoundrel declared as winner


Few of them are scoundrels.

unless a previous unknown manages to please the majority).


Or just get some publicity that ensures that
those who did choose to vote did at least
recognise that particular candidate's name.

It certainly gives a different
message from a low turnout.


Yes, but even with a low turnout, the obvious
interpretation of that is that most of those
who didn't bother to vote had decided that
the parliament isnt actually that relevant to
what happens in the country as a whole and
that they aren't likely to make any real difference
to the result seen regardless of who is elected
in that particular seat.

Currently the only way to do it is to "spoil" the ballot paper. Those,
at least, get counted. Problem is they are regarded as just by idiots
who can't work out how to vote properly.

If you don't like what's on offer, then stand yourself. It's quite easy to submit nomination
papers. For parliamentary elections you have to put up a deposit of 500 which you lose if you
don't get 5% of the votes cast. There is no deposit in local elections.

No thanks. With a first past the post

Yes, but still completely pointless.

Which you won't so that is ****ing your 500 against the wall.

Most of them are too lazy to bother but will be up there moaning about
the government as soon as it does anything that affects them.
