a matter of days than a matter of week when she's going on at least announcing her departure and of course a moment when really important elections are taking place in the u.k. european elections this is not a good look for the conservative party who are set out to take a big kid the voice of big parties aside out a bit take a big hit in these european elections and they could if the exit timetable had worked to plan the country would not have even been in the e.u. by now given that how much interest is there in this european election. well this will be interesting to see it could go either way it could be that people are just coming in droves and just expressing their opinion it is really all about bragg's it or that they say well they are just too frustrated too to just come we've talked to. people here in this polling station where we are in central london and they said that for now it's more like it's trickle soon not really huge amount
3:09 pm
of people storming the polling station to tell the put intentions what they think one party that's real pretty sure it's going to benefit from all this deadlock that we've seen over briggs it here in the u.k. is niger for raj it's new parties called the brakes of party it's pretty much no one man band and niger for ours is from a seeing the people that actually everything is much easier than the politicians in westminster make out who can't make up the minds the conditions that they want to leave and he is saying well let's just leave and to deal with the european union is not very important and his message is resonating with many voters i think to some of his rallies and see what the mood is like that. piece that wherever niger for raj goes he's welcome to my stuff here and way of for example his message recently has betrayed the country but he's unconditionally accepted all
3:10 pm
of brussels demands during the war on ecosystems referendum bird i don't know what . do you. it's a document drafted by the 1st year but on the air. without to leave out looking over his shoulder to rush suggest britain doesn't need to deal with presses the main thing is to leave the queue he doesn't mention that would probably cost jobs but you're right it like you there i'm afraid that there is no chance of being delivered with our current 2 party system our current government will have to fight for it again but i believe we can do so i think the budget referendum actually rob about the sort of the genie coming out of the bottle it's not going back. in the city of peterborough over a 1000 people come to check out the new party many of them used to vote for the conservatives the government is more going to challenge our lawyers and saving us
3:11 pm
and i are nothing but crooks so far as i'm concerned it treasonable people people are very angry and feel very hurt and upset that their vote is being ignored and democracy is being trampled all over the content is that the party claims to have gained more than 100000 new members in just the. maiden name page but you know i am over half of them won't change u.k. can only dream of such numbers greater johnson is in the spotlight and bath in southwest england the political newcomer who has one main goal we have to stop a ferrari take a vote of this country with all the lack of values and all the lies that. campaign or represents he says it's a one man show it's a vehicle to get him into downing street he's taken the got the country up the garden path and over the cliff the new remain party change u.k. has a clear enemy niger for raja's bragg's a party but the n.t.
3:12 pm
brags that vote is splintered and that might be one reason why the pro europeans have not been able to trick nearly the same crowds as a breadth of party already seen by. 4 rows of chairs are enough to accommodate a crowd many of those who have come are disappointed by the establishment parties. this is an opportunity to see what a remain party a new voice a fresh voice has to say to me and always tell you for a start she the passion with which they spoke on the question your opinion and i believe changing from hey i wanted the parties to really really support the people and to support them and the big parties are being punished in the e.u. elections and it looks like the populists will be the biggest witness. so is it looks like nigel for all his easy message is really resonating with voters he makes it easy to live there to leave the european union whereas labor and the
3:13 pm
conservative the traditional bigger parties recognise the how how difficult the actual process is and the m.p.'s in parliament are really reluctant to leave without a deal like nigel for raj suggests so they get a big surge for the populace expected but what role are british politicians like to play in the next e.u. parliament. well they have to assume that they are going to stay that we are facing a deadlock at the moment so in paul amend we don't have a clear majority for any course of breaks it we know that we set the u.k. is set to leave the european union at the end of october so if they don't find a solution then the u.k. with would leave without any deal but the other way out would be to revoke article 50 so that is something that lawmakers could contemplate and in that instance the piece that i elected now would have to stay in for
3:14 pm
a long time so they would have to be free pads to stay for a long time at least they get mass in london thank you very much. night's not just the u.k. voting today voting is also under way in the european elections in the netherlands the 1st dutch voters cast their votes at midnight in all 400000000 europeans will be able to vote over the next 4 days at stake on seats in the open palm and the top job the head of the european commission the 2 favorites for that german conservative mounted veda and the dr social democrats france to hans. let's head to abse dam draco's find zonda is standing by max what's the mood there as i mentioned of the dutch politicians france a tim amman's is at the top candidates for you have been commission president has been boosted interest in the election. well france in the months
3:15 pm
is one of the many faces of the e.u. elections. but he is not expected to have a real input year at least not a positive one them his party is expected to come in in 3rd and traditionally here in the netherlands they are very pro european but not so much pro voting in european elections the voter participation since 1909 has never exceeded 40 percent and we're actually standing right in outside of a polling station right now and crossed a canal talked to a couple people there they feel like this time maybe there is more interest they feel like more people are coming but we'll have to wait for the for the end of the day to see if that's true or not and let's we saw in the u.k. a populist surge is expected what is it like in the netherlands. well one political party has taken center stage all of a sudden that's the forum for democracy a far right populist party which was started in 2016 and they are expected to come
