There is no shortage of elections across Europe, from parts of Britain all away to Greece, stopping off at France in between.
Each election appears, to its participants, to be the most important.
In Britain, the Tories were given a drubbing and only had the consolation of the London Mayoral win to save them from complete embarrassment.
In France, Nicolas Sarkozy’s hapless Presidency has come to an end. The none too radical François Hollande has succeeded him.
In Greece, the traditional parties have been decimated, but more critically one of the beneficiaries has been Greek neo-Nazis.
Nowadays, the term neo-Nazi is occasionally used loosely to suggest, someone nasty, someone horrible, but in this case it is very clear that the epithet is not wasted.
Chrysi Avyi (Golden Dawn) is the real thing. There is no pretence with them. There is none of the camouflage used by their British and French fellow travellers.
Golden Dawn are the genuine article, Hitler loving, flag-waving neo-Nazis.
At last projections they could have 22 seats in the Greek parliament, yes, twenty-two.
That is the real news from the elections, the scary news as any thinking person will realise.
