It’s my last chance to vote for a better Europe on Thursday, so I want it to be more than just a protest.
THE BEST THING about Thursday’s European Elections is that Nigel Farage et al. didn’t want them to happen.
Even though I expect the vote to confirm the mental headlock that Leaving The EU has on around half of the country, it is still good to know that Brexit is going to be later than The Brexiteers planned.
Going to the Polling Station will be nice, in a way. A nostalgic last tango with the European dream. A kind of Summer of 1914 experience before we start digging trenches and shooting at each other for real.
And at least I will be able to tell my grandchildren that I voted for Remain and for parties that supported Europe.
Which means that on Thursday, I won’t – for once – be voting Labour.
