Just some quick thoughts on the results of yesterday's European elections :

- Socialist and Social Democrats on the government were more penalized than center right parties also on government : it looks association with banks, big finance and corruption accusations are heavier on them than on their colleagues…
- Voters don’t give a damn, and not only on the old countries of the Union, even worst new members also didn’t care to vote in significant numbers. The European project is far from the citizens, they feel there’s little democracy in the European process and their vote should be more significant.
- A significant fringe of racist, fascist anti-immigrant minorities are organized and mobilized enough to be heard on the European Parliament, what a shame
