The Polish vote a bit of a conundrum. I thought it was pretty jolly ESC tosh but conventional wisdom (I think) is mostly women and gays vote so how does it get 5th? Decent diaspora vote I guess but does that explain it?

but 5th overall in the pv? Only made final once since 2005 and then was 24th. Germany gives it most votes so no reall voting block as neither east nor west really. An interesting one.

Yes for the UK but there aren't poles everywhere shirley. The fact they won the UK vote suggests either multi voting or a pretty low total vote imo.

Went to vote at 6pm and asked for turnout. Very low turnout in a relatively affluent area. About 10%. Even counting for another 4 hours and postal votes and it looks low. Went on Oddschecker to bet on low turnout but no markets. Closed when polls opened? In the GE you can bet on turnout in running.
