I have just been to vote in the European elections (peers can vote in local elections and elections for the European Parliament, but not for the UK Parliament). It was quite busy. I’ve certainly known that polling station much quieter at 9am on an election day.
Maybe the voter turnout is going to be rather higher than was being predicted. I am not sure who that will benefit, but I suspect for once a higher turnout will not be much help to the Labour Party. I am not sure that the beneficiaries will be the Conservatives either, but we will see. The only Party represented outside the polling station were the Greens …….
