To Strausbourg-where the European parliament should respect his convictions and not seat or pay his MEP's.

I find it odd that UK voters would elect MEP's from a Brexit party, for a five year term, when they will have little effect on the outcome any talks. The UK elects only about 10% of the MEP's so even if Brexit swept the table they would still need a lot of allies in other countries to have any effect on the UK's future.

ETA: Does the EU have by-elections if a seat is left vacant?

Then again, no MEP has any actual effect on anything.  Whatever you can say about the EU, the European Parliament is nothing but a pathetic joke-it's a parliament without a government and it votes on nothing of any importance.

Ask your average Remainer to explain in detail the relationship between the EU Parliament and the EU Commission. How does that work? Yeah, I'll tell you how that works: badly and undemocratically

Which means the Remain obsessives need to stop vilifying Corbyn., since it's the only party that can defeat the Brexit Party at a general elections.  

There simply isn't a valid Left case for putting the EU question before everything else in the universe, and those leading the fight for that are acting out of reactionary intent.
