    My local Tory MP who has done everything he can to give us Brexit has written on his newsletter about people not wanting to vote again etc. He constantly reiterated that he hopes residents will see that he kept his promise to deliver Brexit. I feel sorry for him, but I have to vote for a party that will deliver Brexit. Maybe I should write to him and thank him like Toots did.

    1. Conservatives and Labour go into panic while on their hols and get it together out of fright before the EU elections.

    2. They wait to see what happens in the locals first then panic and get it together out of fright before the EU elections.

    Come on Brexiteers let's show them we really mean it!

    Not picking on this in particular, but it does appear, like many other posts, to be based on wishful thinking. Farage seemed to attract attention in the EU Parliament mainly when he was the performing clown. Hannan, though nowhere near as well known, was the same.
    This time the local elections are more important than who’s going to play the objectionable fool in Brussels and Strasbourg...

    Fortunately there are no local elections where I live, so no canvassers.

    I ripped up my card on 5th December 2018, telling them that Grieve was the straw that broke the camel's back. (Although I have never voted Tory in the EU elections)

    You are right. Most Remain posters are clinging on to wishful thinking too. The difference is that we know what the remainers will sink to in order to get their way. I am confident that main parties are in for a drubbing at local elections and will go into meltdown with shock. At the end of the day their true focus is on power nothing else.
    My vote counts just as much as your's xx

    What kind of Brexit does he support? It's all very well for him to apease leave voters or even genuinly hold the view himself but he also needs to demonstrate what form of Brexit he supports and why it's in his constituents intetests.

    Of course the Brexit Party will run into the same problem that when pushed for details they won't have any response beyond silly slogans.

    Nigel Farage wants to leave the EU with the Majority of voters,which is why he is gaining votes faster than any other politician ever.What is there to lie about?
