Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Prime Minister Theresa May promised European leaders that the U.K. would participate in next month's elections in order to secure a Brexit extension, though the country can still avoid that fate if the House of Commons is able to pass a deal before May 23. If Brits who favor remaining in the European Union thought holding European elections might bolster their position and undermine a push toward Brexit, this latest poll suggests they could be very, very wrong.

By the numbers, per YouGov:

    Brexit Party: 27%
    Labour Party: 22%
    Conservative Party: 15%
    Green Party: 10%
    Liberal Democrats: 9%
    UKIP: 7%
    Change U.K.: 6%
