Abstract

This week London will choose eight representatives in the European Parliament, with Labour expected to top the polls, overturning the Conservatives lead in 2009 despite recent signs of economic revival. Opinion polls suggest that London is the most pro-European region of the country, and its population is also quite multi-ethnic, more diverse and younger than the rest of the country. For UKIP this is difficult terrain and in the London borough elections they are standing only a single candidate in most council wards (which have three councillors across London). This is a key region too for the Green Party who will be seeking to hold onto one of the two MEPs it elected last time. Continuing our series of regional overviews, the Democratic Audit team outline the possibilities and explain who the major party candidates are.
