according to the Guardian poll of voting intentions, gGreens come more from labour than Conservative, and UKIP comes more from Conservative than Labour.

To FM, why are so many selections on the A List bringing in Europhiles? Isn’t the story of Bromley that Conservatives will no longer vote for Europhiles?
