Tomorrow is the day of the elections for our MEPs. Please vote. People have given their lives to secure the vote for all men and women in this country.
Where I live is part of the South East constituency which is entitled to 10 MEPs. Electors cast a single vote for the party of their choice. Votes are then shared on a percentage basis amongst the top scoring parties to select the MEPs. A constituent can then contact any one of these MEPs as his/her representative. Currently my region has 4 Conservatives, 2 Lib Dems, 2 Ukips (including Nigel Farage), 1 Labour and 1 Green. http://www.euroelection.co.uk/eresult/see

If you choose to vote for Ukip you will still be a friend of mine but you will get a fierce examination from me about why you did it next time we actually meet!
