Just as we had warned in the run-up to the European elections – and England’s UKIP victory in local elections had suggested; Anti-European-Union parties are showing strongly in this weekend’s elections. Anxiety is spreading among the status quo as Greece’s anti-austerity party SYRIZA wins and perhaps even more worryingly in supposed core of the union France’s Nationalist party is leading in a “political earthquake” success:
- EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS MUST RESPOND TO CITIZENS’ ANGER: VALLS
- FRANCE’S VALLS SAYS ’SITUATION IS GRAVE FOR FRANCE, EUROPE’
- DRAGHI SAYS PEOPLE VOTING ACROSS EUROPE ARE CLEARLY DISENGAGED
No wonder France is worried…
Anti-establishment parties were gaining ground in other parts of the EU too (following UKIP’s lead in the UK).
