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.
It would only be costly and futile if the UK were to withdraw shortly afterwards but if the UK stays around for a couple of years or more then .....

Farage has been a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for the South East England constituency since 1999. If there would be UK elections for MEPs in May then a very short time and difficult for other candidates to establish themselves as credible opposition?
