- Has anyone ever voted in the European parliament elections?
we could learn a lot from Bashar al-Assad and Putin I don’t see their states being bent over and raped by the EU like we do.
Yeah, we could learn a lot from murderous dictators in terms of how we deal with a liberal organisation that – if not perfect – has, at the very least, contributed to the maintenance of peace in Europe for six decades.Posted 5 months agoinksterMember
” If you have the option to, you have to exercise it.”
No you don’t A few years back some areas of the UK were given the option to vote for their Police Commissioner and hardly any one bothered and the idea was scrapped.
This is my argument with European elections, not enough people vote in them to give them credibility. If an election has a really poor turn out it can’t be seen to be representative.
Totally aware the EU has presided over an unprecedented era of peace in Europe, It was the first thing that came into my mind when voting to remain. Do we need MEP’s to preserve the peace? What if our EU representatives were appointed in a similar way to the Civil Service? The work that needs to be done could be done without the need for unrepresentative elections.Posted 5 months ago
