@TheIndGroup @LibDems A couple of thoughts on 'splitting the vote'. Each candidate fighting has a budget, a voice and access to media etc. The more remain candidates therefore, potentially the greater is remain's reach. and louder its voice 1/4
Brexit has 3-4 parties and therefore around 300 MEP candidates. This gives that argument a very large budget and loud voice.
Remain has: Greens, Libdems, SNP, Plaid and ChangeUK. That enables it to spend & spread the word more powerfully than if there was a single grouping. 2/4
If remain parties had gone as a single slate that would have reduced their spending power and candidate reach significantly. Whilst the result could be more seats, it could nevertheless mean a lower remain % of the overall vote, since remain would have less money & reach. 3/4
The result of the EP elections needs to be judged on the % result for remain. Whilst, I understand the frustration therefore, I think we should focus 100% on getting the remain vote out, irrespective of for whom those votes are cast. 4/4
