Ok, so we've got EU elections on Thursday (26th), now I voted to leave - we should have left a long time ago.

So do I vote ? Points against :

* It in some small way validates interest in the EU. Some arsehole will try and spin a moderate turn out to another "people's vote" is needed.

Points for :

* It'll balance out the brainwashed who are pro EU and want a people's vote milkshake based linky

I really, really don't want to lend any form of credence to the EU, so what do I do ?

Always vote to centralize power to yourself. This means to always vote against EU, UN, etc.

The revolution will occur only as proscribed by the appropriate authorities.

Well, it's more like - you can vote for what you want, if we don't like it - we'll smother it in damp tissue

That's down to our crappy politicians - many of which are directly in bed with the EU (cough lib dems), if the choice had of been left to the people, we'd have been out.

There's a small beacon of hope with the Brexit party.

What I find particularly amusing is that the SNP supposedly values nationalism and independence, yet adamantly doesn't want to leave the EU.

They're trying to find anyway to call another referendum on independence - despite the outcomes of the previous one. Which is very EU of them.
