    Ask them, it was their idea. Here's one perspective from a lesser spotted remainer...

    Britain will have its second referendum – at the EU elections on 23 May

    They'll still be bad losers about it though afterwards. No surprises there.

    So you can't explain it but are happy about UKIP or the Brexit Party winning seats? Why are you happy about that?

    So you didn't read the article from the "horses mouth" so to speak? Of course I am happy with the Brexit party or UKIP winning seats, didn't you guess that I would be?

    Seriously that post makes no sense. The second question after quoting my post doesn't just make no sense it's bordering insanity to ask "Of course I am happy ..., didn't you guess that I would be?" after I asked you "Why are you happy about that?".

    Maybe it wasn't clear enough.

    Let's try again. Why are you happy that UKIP or the Brexit Party gain seats?

    So according to the poll you posted earlier less than a quarter want a Farage Brexit, a quarter want no brexit at all and the other 50% would prefer brexit but don't want a Farage brexit (some of whom would prefer to not leave if it meant a Farage brexit).

    On this basis, the Brexit party would get a lot fewer seats than UKIP managed in 2014. And the EU managed to survive that bunch of useless pricks. Another nail in the coffin, we might have to seal dribbles in with the corpse if this carries on.

    This poll is, potentially, interesting if it is a true reflection of attitudes across the UK.

    I support what the Brexit party stands for, why don't you?

    And how many support remain? In percentage terms is it still in single figures?

    Hahaha really? The only poll that counts is the one on the day. But if you truly believe that your vision is the future, and I doubt it, you can always put your money where your mouth is, I have...

    58%, if the current figure is to be believed.

    Bollocks. Sample size 1000, probably residents in London. The only party clearly for remain is the Lib Dems. How are they doing in pre EU election polls?

    Don't make me laugh....

    Sample size of 1000 is enough for 1% degree of confidence. I understand that any poll that does not reflect your view of the world is bullshit to you though.

    So we can say with 99% confidence it could be wrong? I'd say 99.9999999999999% it is lol Desperate times for you remainers.

    And what were the odds on Remain the day before the referendum? Wasn't it something like 1-12? Sometimes the odds are wrong.

    Anyway, I'm comfortable. Even if you get up to 30%, that still reflects that you don't have a mandate. And you never will. This EU election will send the message, and the 2nd referendum will follow it. After that Brexit will be officially off before you know it. Tick, tock.

    Assuming the methodology in selecting the polled samples is sound, a sample size of 1,000 is more than adequate.

    With that said I would be extremely cautious in taking the result of one poll as being indicative of the feeling across the UK. I also find it somewhat worrisome that, even though this poll shows a remain majority, it still shows that the country is deeply divided on Brexit.

    No, the poll says that between 57 and 59% would vote Remain, and between 41 and 43% would vote Leave. That's how polling and confidence intervals works.

    Another thing to add to the list of "things that dribbles doesn't understand how they work". Polling. That list is getting longer by the minute. There really is no beginning to your talents.

    Considering 1000 people is a fairly substantial sample size, it's likely he meant within 1% margin of error rather than 1% chance of being correct.

    Wasn't 30% vote share enough to put Theresa May in power? Cheers, you set a low bar....

    A sample size of 1000 is hardly adequate, especially if in conjunction it was taken in or around the LSE student union bar for example. It's a codswallop poll no more no less.
