The Brexit Party “Remains” In First Place in UK EU Election Poll

Here’s Why The Convention is Still On and Why It Matters

There is all kinds of claims swirling about on this convention vs. “firehouse” primary. The matter is simple to me: Changing the mode of selection at the last minute seems wrong to me.
