It's the day of the European Elections and the polls are open. Are you rushing out to vote?

With a rather daunting 757 candidates to choose from, representing between them 39 parties, it would be totally understandable if you were a bit put off.

So, out of this plethora of nominees hoping to become Britain’s 73 MEPs, who do you pick?

We've highlighted some of the more loopy controversial parties you could vote for, which may make the selection process easier.

  • The British National Party
    The BNP 'is committed to putting the interests of the British people first'. Its horror show of a promotional video for the European Elections, features a raft of humourless youths offering disturbing rhetoric about the demise of a once great Britain… and Stephen Lawrence’s mum.
  • Christian Peoples Alliance
    The party behind this absolutely catastrophic car-crash of an interview, the party's leader has acknowledged that while it is not 100% certain that gay marriage caused the recent flooding in England but it is pretty likely...
  • An Independence from Europe
    Launched by Mike Nattrass MEP in 2013 following his deselection as a candidate for Ukip, the similarity of the name and the party's description as 'United Kingdom Independence' has led Nigel Farage's party to complain to the Electoral Commission. Ukip has also accused the party of “masquerading” as it in a bid to confuse voters. This superb video features a very naughty EU octopus.
  • Liberty GB
    Liberty GB are another Libertarian far-right party, who it seems are attempting to out-UKIP the actual UKIP. Founder Paul Weston left UKIP, founded the British Freedom Party (BFP), which then formed an alliance with the English Defence League. The group's Facebook page describes it as "patriotic counter-jihad party for Christian civilisation, Western rights and freedoms, British culture, animal welfare and capitalism".
  • Ukip

    Oh Ukip, where do we begin. It's looks like the Eurosceptic party are set to win with 27%, despite him being involved in a number of racist and homophobic controversies in the lead up to election day. Be it the disastrous Ukip Carnival, or a total hashtag fail on Twitter, nothing seems to be standing in Nigel Farage's path to victory.
  • English Democrats
    "Let the English Revolt Commence": A strong tagline from a party that would seek to work with Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders in the European Parliament should they be successful in today's elections...
  • Britain First
    Former BNP member Jim Dowson created Britain First and famously falling out with Nick Griffin in 2010. The Scottish Christian fundamentalist has also led an anti-abortion campaign, the UK Life League and registered the phrase "Remember Lee Rigby" for use in the 2014 European elections.
  • The Roman Party, Ave!

    Jean-Louis Pascual, a bus driver from Reading, like the Romans so much he set up a party to honour them. The basis of his policy is – “when in Rome do as the Romans do.”

Meanwhile, as Britian heads to the polls, predictions – based on a poll of 6,124 adults over the last two days by YouGov for The Sun – show that Farage's Ukip will gain most votes, while Labour is projected to come second with 26%, the Tories third with 22% of the vote, followed by the Greens on 10% and the Lib Dems with a dismal 9%.
