EU parliament poised to shift right, if not downright EU-skeptic.

This week’s dose of unintentional irony comes to us via Riehl World View. The context: the way that the EU parliamentary elections seemed poised to give more say to political parties that don’t like concept of the EU parliament all that much.

“It is a paradox, really. It shows how divided the center-left forces are at the moment. Normally sitting governments are punished at European elections,” said Jackie Davis, an analyst at the European Policy Centre in Brussels.

Funny: from all the way over here in the USA that’s what it looks like the European electorate is actually doing.
