Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On Tuesday I learned that I, too, am on the list... One of our 12 candidates (of the 79 on the list) dropped out, so, days before the deadline, I'm sending in my administrative details today. I'm 77.

It just occurred to me that if the UK participates in these élections, I drop off again (only 74 French seats). Brexit is really getting personal for me.

No excuses now! You will still be expected to produce campaign diaries for Eurotrib even if you are dropped off the list! Given that the UK may still leave the EU at some stage, the number of French seats may still go back up to 79 again - with the extra five MEPs taking their seats when the UK drops out.

Do you get all the train tickets to Brussels you have to cancel because they keep not leaving reimbursed?
