The continent-wide elections for the European Union's parliament are underway. Tomorrow the last ballots will be cast.

- Britain. Nigel Farage's newfly formed Brexit Party is said to be the clear front-runner
[UPDATE: Farage clear winner confirmed)

- Italy. Matteo Salvini's Lega is expected to have results beyond all precedent, going from last year's 17% to over 35% at the national level - and possibly the first party in the EU parliament as well
[UPDATE: his party is now second largest in EU parliament, largest in all North Italy [40% and over], first party in central Italy and Sardinia, except Tuscany (Left still first), second party in the South (5star first)]

"Euro-skeptic" parties will surely gain far more seats than they currently have. But just how many, and how much of a change - if any - will they be able to command?

One thing is for sure - Yawon Bwook and obLeftivists worldwide shan't be happy - that is surely a good sign.


The new face of the European nationalists:

"Stupid nationalists!"

Jean-Claude Yunker-Bwook lets the cat out of the bag: "stupid nationalists are in love with their own country. ... They don't like people who come from far away [dinky little savages from shit-hole countries].

Brussels (CNN)European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has lashed out at "stupid nationalists" on the eve of European elections in which euroskeptic politicians are expected to make gains in the European Parliament.

In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, the outgoing president said he was only too aware of the threat that nationalist politicians pose to European solidarity, which Juncker called the "main objective of the EU."

Some polls project that populists may become the most powerful group in the parliament following this week's elections in all 28 EU nations, resulting in a lasting impact on the future of the bloc and the continent at large. "These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries," Juncker told CNN in his Brussels office.

"They don't like those coming from far away, I like those coming from far away ... we have to act in solidarity with those who are in a worse situation than we are in," he said.

As I Understand It ...

... The Filth will still preponderate in the European Parliament. Is this correct? Are Obleftivists laughing after all?

Spectacular results in the Bel Paese

Tommy Didn't Make It

38,000 votes though. Impressive for an Independent relentlessly smeared by Media-and-Other-Establishment-Filth.

Looking good overall. Brexit a runaway winner in Britonistan, Salvini in Italistan, Le Pen in Francistan; Poland and Hungary standing firm ...

Obleftivists are crying tonight.

"I will be your MEP!"

Down with the globalists indeed, Linzio!

Will Tommy make it?

Can't wait!

Bwook wanted to pivot fwom fighting socialism (which he wasn't doing anyway, as a tacit supporter of the regime in Communist China) to fighting nationalism, which is the enemy of the Sorosian globalism of which Bwook and other Obleftivists are such fans. Fingers crossed for great results for Western Civilisation and the sovereignty of the nation states that comprise it, and catastrophic results for evil open borders globalists. Such as Bwook pin-up Theresa May. Ding, dong, the witch is dead! The wicked wicked witch is dead!
