    I refuse to vote BNP out of principle and I will admit to not actually knowing much about the Green Party. Of the remaining four options, the big three are all in various stages of "do whatever Europe wants us to regardless of its value to the people of our country", so I find myself having to vote UKIP simply because they are the only party on the list who are not completely pathetic about the issue. I wouldn't like to be completely out of Europe, but I certainly enjoy the idea of standing up to them once in a while.

    Well I'm not a supporter of European integration so I suppose UKIP on that front BUT I haven't got a clue about any of their other policies on anything else. I think of them as Conservatives with a harder line on Europe but I might be wrong.

    A majority have voted for UKIP. This seems largely emotive. To be honest, I can't imagine that if they ever did get in power (most likely through a coalition) that they would pull out of Europe. It would probably just be a renegotiation of powers.

    The only problem with the current stance is that we're getting roped into donating to the Eurozone emergency fund when it's not our problem. So far, Cameron has given Germany and France the middle finger on that front which is good. We can't leave the EU like what UKIP want though, we have too much free trade with them and a loss of that would hamper the economy I fear.

    In an ideal world we are staying out of all problems Euro but not pissing them off such that we can't trade with them anymore.

    Therefore for me it is a tie between Con and UKIP.

    UKIP, obviously. The whole thing is unravelling at the seams just as Farage predicted years ago. Ironically the Euro was the best thing that happened for the British dependence movement, it allowed the EU to show it's true colours.

    of parties listed here, easily the Greens, they want to stay in Europe but call for major reforms toward a much more democratic EU.

    It's not a matter of 'best', it's a matter of what an individual supports.

    As a Conservative supporter, I'm often not too pleased with their policies on Europe. They've done nothing bad in government, but some of the supposedly anti-federalist rhetoric too often crosses into narrow nationalism.

    What's "narrow nationalism"?

    They would have a policy on Europe, but the delegates are still cycling to the party conference...

    Just out of interest, what is your personal view on joining the Euro?

    In line with my view on Europe it would have to be UKIP.

    Not now but hopefully sometime in the future and if the public votes in favour of it in a Referendum

    UKIP. Frankly I've got fed up of stupid policies like CFP, CAP and so on which are detrimental to the UK.

    I used to be quite optimistic about the EU but dislike it now so UKIP. Also isn't the BNP's policy exactly the same as UKIP's?

    As a Labour supporter it would have to be the Lib Dems, I fully support joining the Euro.

    Suprisingly, it's actually in line with UKIP's, I am quite eurosceptic and would love to see Britain regain some sovereignty instead of being told what to do by European unelected Bureaucrats.

    UKIP obviously, anyone in favour of a United Europe should not be branded British anymore.

    Greens for certain - pretty much for the reasons SciFiBoy posted.

    An United Europe would be a good thing, but the current EU is poorly organised. It needs reforming, not for us to withdraw from it.
