europarlmrfrfrfrfrrrEuropeans don’t want any more to tolerate governments’ aloofness, economic dysfunction and incapacity to calm the alienation felt by citizens. The most evident proof of this fact is the results of the election to the European Parliament held between 22 and 25 May 2014. They have demonstrated an unprecedented surge in popularity of the far-right, anti-EU parties. The influence of Eurosceptic parties have been underestimated for a long time. And now with one third in the EU parliament the eurosceptics will have an important say in the European legislation. The results have turned to be a blow to the governments, with the French PM even calling the result “a political earthquake.”

The fact is, Europeans started to support those who promise them independence and freedom from inflexible and damaging EU legislation, to reduce bureaucracy, overcome financial crisis and rising unemployment, cope with uncontrolled immigration. Such parties as Marine Le Pen’s far right National Front (France), Nigel Farage’s UK Independence Party, True Finns (Finland) and some others persuade Europeans of the necessity to develop their states as individual, sovereign countries. And these arguments resonate with many people.

The anti-EU public mood shows also great political confrontation fatigue. People don’t want a new Cold War. And, of course, every right-minded person in Europe agrees with Marine Le Pen that “It’s not in line with traditional, friendly relations nor with the economic interests of our country or EU countries and harms future relations.”

Europeans are absolutely sure that the European Union must change, but these reforms will be now strongly influenced by anti-EU parties, acting inside the organization, and the future of the united Europe is becoming more and more cloudy.
