Who do you intend to vote for in the European Elections?

The United Kingdom's portion of the 2014 European elections will be held on Thursday 22 May 2014 and the 2014 local elections in England will also be held on the same day.

Most analysts considering these to be the most important European elections ever given how much focus has been on the the EU, the Euro, and the European financial crisis in the past few years, and because of the rise of euro-skeptic parties not just in the UK but across the continent.

Most of the results of the election will be announced on Sunday 25 May, after voting has closed throughout the 28 member states of the European Union.

In total, 73 Members of the European Parliament will be elected from the United Kingdom using proportional representation.

So, who deserves your vote?

Official Views

Only the Conservatives have achieved real results in Europe - cutting the EU budget, vetoing a fiscal treaty that would have hurt our economy, and taking Britain out of the Eurozone bailouts that Labour signed us up to.

Labour and the Liberal Democrats will not stand up for Britain in Europe, and they refuse to give the British people a say in an in-out referendum. UKIP are neither credible nor competent and they can't deliver for Britain.

Only the Conservatives can deliver real change in Europe. We will renegotiate Britain's membership then hold an in-out referendum for the British people to decide our future in Europe.

In these elections and the General Election next year, Britain faces a big choice. Not just a choice between candidates or parties, but an historic choice between two totally different visions of how a country succeeds, of how we can build a better future for the hardworking people of Britain, of who our country is run for.

As the Tories try to go on a lap of honour about how well everything is going the reality for hardworking people right across the country is they are struggling to keep up, caught in the crosshairs of a cost of living crisis the like of which we haven’t seen before.

By voting Labour, you will be voting for action in Europe and locally to tackle that cost of living crisis now and for the future. You will be electing Labour MEPs whose priority isn’t leaving, but changing the European Union so that it can work to raise living standards for hardworking families in Britain.

It’s time to decide. We don’t need to wait until 2017 to have a referendum: lets have one right now. Use the European Elections on 22 May to tell them what you think about the EU.

A lot of lies are told about the EU. We’re frequently told that we’ll lose 3 million jobs if we leave – a shameless lie.

A few big businessmen are regularly wheeled out to say they want to stay in; but when the EU is geared to help big businesses and prevent small ones from challenging them, that’s not surprising. It’s our 4.8 million smaller businesses that suffer from the burden of EU laws and regulations.

With your help, we’ll continue to work for the UK’s withdrawal from the big political project that is the EU – the project, as a long-serving commissioner said recently, to create a United States of Europe.

We want our country back. Don’t you?

On 22 May, your choice is simple: do you think Britain is better off in Europe or do you want us out of it?

The Liberal Democrats are now Britain’s only party of IN. We want Britain to stay in Europe – because that is how we keep our country strong, prosperous, safe and green.

We know the EU isn't perfect but we can only make Europe better if we stay in a position of influence at the centre.

Our Manifesto sets out how we will:
• Create more jobs from trade within Europe
• Help fight crime across Europe
• Protect the environment and create green jobs
• Reform the EU to cut waste, protect the UK’s influence in the Single Market and strengthen the role of the Westminster Parliament in scrutinising EU legislation

A vote for any of the three main parties is a vote to continue what we're doing now. If you think the country and the continent are going in the right direction then do that. Otherwise, it's UKIP or the Greens. UKIP if you believe in free markets and Greens if you're an ardent socialist.

I voted for UKIP as I believe in true immigration from the whole of the World, not just the 27 member other states of the EU.

I believe in real free GLOBAL trade: d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/ukipdev/pages/96/attachments/original/1396261328/EFd_doc_2.0.pdf

...and I believe in UKIPs policies across the board: www.ukip-ynl.org/ukip-manifesto-2014.pdf

You should vote for UKIP too. In this Poll and the European Elections.

Labour may have totally messed up a number of things, but they're still better than the alternatives. Which doesn't say much for our political system!!

The LibDems are the only UK party that has taken on UKIP head-on -- and understand that it is in Britain's interest to be at the heart of Europe, making necessary reforms in collaboration with our continental allies.

Lenny Parsons I would maybe somewhat agree with you if I hadn't spent the last 2 months having to answer accusations of false policies against UKIP from the Labour Party.

They have been telling people all around the country that UKIP want to privatise the NHS which just simple is not true.

These false stories Labour have put out has forced UKIP into having to publish repeated statements via the UKIP website denying these allegations.

Labour have not been conducting a fair election.
