WITH just three days until polling day, people living in Swindon are divided on the European elections.

The Adver asked voters across the town to give their views on Thursday's poll.

And of those we spoke to, the majority said they will be voting for the Brexit Party.

A 51-year-old man, who wished not to be named, said: “I’ll vote for the Brexit Party.

"Our country is a mess and I think it’s the only party that can save it.”

Ben Fiocca said he will be voting for Liberal Democrats, adding: “A vote for the Brexit Party is a vote for candidates that are homophobic, racist, and want to privatise the NHS.

“You might want Brexit but to blindly vote for those kinds of people is not sensible.”

WHO CAN I VOTE FOR? Full list of candidates for European Election

While voters were split between the main political parties, others don’t think they should even be voting.

Paul Alibone said: “I’m not voting because we should be out of Europe by now.

“It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money to hold an election and the EU could have done more to ensure a vote wasn’t necessary for the UK knowing that we are leaving.

“The MEPs standing don’t have any real manifesto.

"We all know what Farage will do and that’s just not helpful.”

A spokesman for Swindon Stand Up to Racism group said: “The electoral system used for European elections means that candidates can be elected with a very low vote.

“A low turnout can allow the election of extreme right candidates who can then use the platform of office to attack hard-won conditions and further divide our society.”

He added: “This is a threat for all who want to live in a decent society.

“Britain is split on the question of Brexit, but the vast majority of people on both sides of the debate oppose bigotry, racism and the far right.”

Activist with the Swindon For Europe group Sam Hollings said: “The European Union isn’t right as it is now. It needs to change.

“People complain about the EU but it’s now their chance for them to push for a positive change, and make a real difference.

“The European elections are very difficult to predict because of the weird voting system, so anything could happen.”

The UK’s departure from the EU has been delayed several times and is now set to be October 31.
