OK I need to correct this number. It should be about 15% of the vote to be in with a shout. 15K votes is a no hoper. Harkin, on about 11%, was an exception with an incredible ability to hoover up votes all the way across the country.

Here is a current list with Casey included.

Cant see Ming getting a big vote this time around people have copped on to him,He has done absolutely nothing since he got in.
Can you back up that claim. Not quite sure you've done your research.

Surely he;d be better off going to a Dail seat? Not that many travelers in Europe so what exactly does he hope to achieve there?

EDIT - with him on the single use plastics, but again - is that as much of an issue for Europe? Most western European countries already recycle more than Ireland does.

I'm not quite sure he gets the asylum process judging from his comments

Brexit and leaving the Euro will not be popular. Banning certain plastics is a good idea but I doubt it will gel with the people who support his other policies

Great start Peter.
Ah, Francie, it’s been too long. I hope you brought biscuits this time?

Ps: don’t tell anyone but I won’t be voting (or betting on) PC this time

No worries. One reason I don't do multi-quotes!

What are the main things Ming has achieved as an MEP?

His voting rate of just 16 percent in European Parliament plenary sessions is abysmal. The average across MEPs is about 75 percent.

He was tweeting recently that he has attended 94 out of 95 meetings of a particular committee which he is involved with over there.

A separate thread for every candidate in the European elections? Even no-hopers like Casey?

Should be fun alright.
