Left-Wing Parties Losing Across Europe

Posted by iusbvision on June 8, 2009

Left wing parties are losing big all over Europe. The British sosiclists lead by Prime Minister Gordon Brown are in for a pasting in the near future. Brown’s Policies are very similar to the Obama Administration and have had more time to “work”. The result has been a very predictable disaster. The voters have had enough.

Der Spiegel:

The center-right European People’s Party (EPP) held on to its position as the largest grouping in the European Parliament, with provisional results giving them 267, or around 36 percent, of the assembly’s 736 seats. The center-right’s showing was even better than indicated by the EPP’s results, as many euroskeptic members of the European Parliament are moving to other parliamentary groups.

The vote’s biggest loser is the center-left, with the Party of European Socialists (PES) winning just 159 seats, 56 fewer than in the 2004 election. “Tonight is a very difficult evening for Socialists in many nations in Europe,” Martin Schulz, lead candidate for Germany’s Social Democrats and the floor leader for the PES in the European Parliament, said on Sunday evening.
