EU election results: Massive Victory for Conservative Nationalists in European Elections….

Polls are all closed. Election results are beginning to come in fast. The overall result in the European (EU) Parliamentary Election reflects massive gains for conservative nationalists in Italy, Greece, France, Poland, Hungary, Austria, U.K. and others…

With this best of all:

In the U.K. Nigel Farage Brexit Party is crushing the traditional political classes. With 100 of 373 counts complete, the brand new Brexit Party is in the lead with 31.9%, crushing the two largest parties,Conservatives and Labour, who are down 12-14% each so far.

UPDATE: The UK results.

Results so far

    Green and other far-left parties have done very well, too.

    What we are really seeing is a polarisation, and who knows where that will end.

    ‘Conservative’ in this context is strained even more than in the US ‘Conservative Movement’ usage. What, exactly, is ‘Conservative’ about the ethno-nationalists of the FPOe, Fidesz or the Polish nationalists? And, so far as this ‘conservatism’ eschews (classical) liberal values including respect for individual freedom, the rule of law and a free press, what on earth is it doing on a ‘libertarian and centre-right’ blog?

    The EU octopus won’t let go that easily.

    Massive Victory for Conservative Nationalists in European Elections

    No, not really. The vote for such parties may have increased, but the EPP has been returned. Another five years of Donald Tusk and Guy Verhofstadt.

  5. The Indian general election went in a similar way.

    Context determines meaning: “Massive Victory for Conservative Nationalists in European Elections….”

    Clearly they wish to conserve their national identity and culture in the face of EU policies on migration and borders.

    (That’s an observation, not necessarily an argument, btw, as I wouldn’t defend every policy the groups mentioned hold.)

    Not for the first time, some English-language media are viewing these results through an ‘interesting’ prism: while the mainstream centre-right and centre-left parties have lost support, the social and classical liberals have seen a surge of support – almost equal to the loss of support for christian democrats etc aligned in the EPP. In Germany, the SPD has continued its decline, to be replaced by the Greens as the main party of the left, while the Union have lost some support, but the FDP (classical liberals) is resurgent:

    Liberal-aligned French outpolled the FN nationalists … but of course, that doesn’t suit some people’s narratives.

    Europeans are quite odd

    Often the same ones who are loving in with the EU are all all snarlypuss about tourists,conserving local language culture (and breaking away from their national government)

    Oh dear, Merkelian libertarians are very sour at the election results!

  13. Dr Fred Lenin

    The Scots “nationalist” euro lovers are amusing ,bit over 30 oer cent of the vote and the want another independence refereandum ,so we lost the last one we might win the second ? Socialist thinking ,just because it hasnt worked ten times doesnt mean it doesnt work! Hope they get “independence” within the fascist euro soviet the rest of the UK will save 14 billion pounds a year not having to support unemployed Scots ,wonder if the Fourth Reich Brussels comrades will keep supporting them , or put them into work camps like the Third Reich under comrade hitler? Jut thought ,what a good nm for he scot nat leftists ,the Forth Reich !

  14. Fisky

    My favourite thing about the dumb anti-Brexit Scottish Nationalists is if their independence referendum had gotten up, Scotland would have left the EU immediately without a deal. Oops.

    The Indian general election went in a similar way.

    Really? Hard to see any connection here. They re-elected a fairly hardline Hindu government loaded with saddlebags of corruption who promise to make India for Hindu’s only.

  21. Pyrmonter

    ‘Merkelian Libertarians’ – not quite sure who these are: the Christian Democratic Union and Christian Social Union have their origins in catholic confessinal politics, are broadly centre-right, but haven’t been Ordoliberals since the 1960s (they were led for a while by the great, though now often overlooked, Ludwig Erhard, author of ‘Prosperity for All’ – something they delivered, while taking in something like 15 million refugees from eastern and east central Europe.

    The Union parties are in something of a death’s-embrace in the form of a grand coalition with the social democrats. It means deep compromises for both, and is alienating both parties’ core constituencies. The German classical liberals meanwhile have revived and, though a touch to close to the Ruskies, are doing well.

    Fisky ,what do you call independence if you obey the orders of unelected bureaucrats in Brussells Nigel Farage said in Edinbugh ,typical credentialed losers ,we are not the only country they infest .

  24. Really? Hard to see any connection here. They re-elected a fairly hardline Hindu government loaded with saddlebags of corruption who promise to make India for Hindu’s only.

    My reading of the election is that India voted for nationalism, quite the opposite of what the EU wants. That’s the connection. And you think the EU doesn’t have an entire Panzer division worth of jerrycans full of corruption?

    The vatican is against populism ,what a surprise! They have always been central control freaks ,one pope dictator elected by the lesser dictators ,still being an Argentinian this pope would be used to dictators , bet he brown nosed Galtieri and the Perons .
    The vatican has never liked people power ,like the elites they love yto entertain in their cardinals palaces .

    The Hungarians were under the Ottoman Empire for a very long time. That 150 years of occupation by a completely different culture, (+the Russian presence with compulsory Russian language in schools) would make any country nationalistic and not let dilute the population like France and the other countries.
    Good luck to the former eastern block countries. They managed to stop the madness in time.

  28. Chris M

    Ah I see, yes that is correct. They are a nationalistic Hindu party. Most 3rd world countries and people that work an hourly rate are nationalistic, it’s only the woke people and public servants in wealthy countries who love globalism.

    Ok, so Brexit party picked up UKIP votes, plus 7%.

    Have I got this right, per. their stated policies before the EU election:
    for brexit
    * Brexit – 31.6%
    * Labour – 14.1%
    * Conservative – 9.1%

    remainers
    * Lib Dem – 20.3%
    * Greens – 12.1%

    So its: 54.8% for Brexit vs 32.4% against

    If that’s not another referendum result, I don’t know what is.

  30. If that’s not another referendum result, I don’t know what is.

    It’s loud and clear what the people want, but it’s not what the elites and progressives want, so the latter will still keep up with their clamouring. The elites and progressives must be taking a leaf out of the US Demo(n)crats book, refusing to accept that Trump is the President.

    You’re right of course if one assumes that Conservatives, Labour, Lib/Dem and Greens voters were treating it as a Brexit referendum – quite possible but not certain. Also UKIP’s 3.3% can clearly be added to the “leave” column, though Change UK’s 3.4% is definitely “Remain”.

    The position is even more stark if only essentially single issue parties are looked at: Brexit plus UKIP = 34.9% , Change UK 3.4%.

  32. Ellen of Tasmania

    Labour & Tories are such a mixed bag, I think it’s hard to place the voters definitively re: leave or cleave.

    Both parties were so smudgy on the issue and I think the results suggest it cost them big time. Tories should hang their heads in shame.

    P.S. Did you hear Rees-Mogg’s sister got in for the Brexit Party?

  33. Amadeus

    What a lovely set of numbers….

  34. Squirrel

    And in spite of this message from the British public, we still have prominent Conservatives prepared to go nuclear, so to speak, if the option of a non-deal Brexit is not ruled out by the next PM – the limbless Monty Python knight comes to mind.

  35. Robbo

    Dishonesty has got it’s just desserts. Three years ago the UK voted to leave the EU. Since then there has been nothing but obfuscation , lies and no action from those entrusted to carry out the will of the people. Now they have been given a strong two word message by the voters and it begins with G with the second word beginning with F. More delays, more lies and more ignoring the will of the people will see the Conservatives and Labour given their marching orders at the next general election. It all promises to be a very interesting viewing for those of us who are interested.

    …they were led for a while by the great, though now often overlooked, Ludwig Erhard, author of ‘Prosperity for All’ – something they delivered, while taking in something like 15 million refugees from eastern and east central Europe.

    Pyrmonter, you poor confused fucking idiot. Your head is stuck so far up your ass, it’s wonder tad you still can breathe.
    I was one of those 15 million refugees. And the Germans did not take me. They did not take any “refugees”. They took workers. Workers that could work for Germans, do all dirty jobs that Germans would not do. And they took you only if you had a job guarantee in Germany. And when that job expired, when you where no more use to them they sent you back (similar to the concentration camps, the difference was that the “sent” in concentration camps was more permanent).

  37. Diogenes

    I was one of those 15 million refugees. And the Germans did not take me.

    Sample size of 1 – my sample size is the same as yours.
    My paternal family were also refugees, and they were take in , even if the family wanted to move on , and they spent 12 years in UN run refugee camps in Barvaria. They were actually in more danger from the Americans in 1945, than they were from the Germans despite being classified as ‘defeatists’ by fleeing the Russians, dad had memories of USAF (technically Army Air Corps) strafing the camp
