Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Anybody know if the UK MEPs will be able to stand for the EU elections in May assuming Brexit is delayed?
And if so will Farage continue to benefit from this gravy train?
If the UK is still a full member at the time of the election, it would stand to reason that the UK will also be able to elect MEPs.

This would obviously be costly and rather futile if the UK were to withdraw shortly afterwards, so it stands to reason that both sides want to avoid such a scenario.

OTOH, Farage is no longer in UKIP, and his new party isn't really established yet, so it is not at all a foregone conclusion that he would indeed get re-elected.
