European right advances, but what does the ‘right’ now stand for?

Several anti-immigration parties increased their votes substantially in the European Parliamentary elections, where votes were counted overnight on Sunday and Monday. Results in Ireland are still awaited, but as we explain elsewhere on this site, it’s already clear that the radical wing of the Irish anti-immigration movement has failed to fulfil expectations.

H&D has published the most detailed analysis of the Europe-wide results from a non-party, nationalist perspective. Click here to read our report, which will be updated once the full Irish results become available.

As explained in the forthcoming issue of our magazine, the most important aspect of these European elections is not so much the result for individual parties in particular countries, but whether it will be possible to build a cross-party alliance in the European Parliament that is able to exert meaningful pressure on immigration policy and related matters.

Key problems here include bitter divisions among European nationalists (partly though not exclusively related to different attitudes to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine), as well as the underlying reality that the European Parliament has limited powers even over European Union institutions.

That’s why we have described last night’s results as a matter of protest, rather than power.

Nevertheless, these votes are a heartening indication of the tide of opinion among Europeans, especially among younger voters.

Tomorrow belongs to us!
