Holy shit! The Swedish democrats (the right extremist party) almost passed the 4% barrier! Apparently, PP saved us by sucking up the anti-establishment voters that previously voted for SD.

The general trend was the opposite (with an even smaller percentage of voting citizens and consequently increased power for extremists). Shame on you, Europe!

A recession, and Europe turns right-wing. This... makes no sense...

Britain and Spain are understandable (left-ish governments in power who have snuggled up to bankers and in some cases have had serious scandals), but what happened elsewhere?

I think right wing policies have become much more acceptable in the recession to otherwise left wing voters. People are more prepared to believe that right wing policies will give them jobs, where as left wing policies sound much more unbelievable.

Heh. No such problems here. I think it's pretty safe that Dubya ruined the right-wing's chances of going anywhere for the next decade or so. :)

It's not like it hasn't happened before :\

I think the reason is that it's much easier to point out a scapegoat, than to actually accept the crisis as something inevitable and deal with it as best you can. Muslims be stealing our jobs, and whatnot. Furthermore, the nationalist parties are, as a rule, critical to the union, which would get them more votes from those in favour of protectionism, am I right?

Not to mention the increase of racism and fear of terrorism (which probably helped lead PP to a victory; that's how they got my vote, at least).

And hasn't EU always been right-wing, just not to the extreme?

I think thats more or less right, and I thought the EU was more heavily weighted towards the left, however you could make the argument that this supposedly left wing majority was more right wing the the EU made it look. If that makes any sense.

The Socialist group was the largest member group of the EU last term, which is supposedly center left, but the EPP has taken control this term, which is supposedly center right. The UK conservative party was a member of the EPP, but are leaving it to make their own group more opposed to further political integration. The UKs Labour party is a member of the Socialist party.

Why don't they join UEN? Or are they too extreme/disorganised?

I think they agree with most EPP policies, just not further integration in the EU, so the UEN would be to extreme. To be honest I think its more of a publicity stunt, to show that "The Tories are looking out for the values of Britain." I wouldn't even be surprised if it never happened.

Yep. I'm hoping the greens, so that they can cooperate with the two green Swedes. They are basically the same as PP on those questions and should be on the same level, unlike, apparently, the rest of the union.

I assume with over 3 and a half times as many views as posts, somewhere in the last 227 pages the original idea of this thread failed.
I'll still do my bit, but hey, only another 24,069 posts to get it back to a 1:1 ratio.
