sync your own salary into that one moment. let's move on now james creek on the other side of usus did a god evening to you so hi mark -- obviously run allies in t the european elections and other major trends and it seems that the ball main parties took a real body blood in. the dates i press with everybody sort of claiming to bring a lis. right say they won the dreams of he did very well yes so at the the the kinda different spin on it depending on your perspective but i think what we can conclude is at this headline in the guardian is it this is. one element of an analysis of this coming back again and again french far right. is kind of no confirmed basically is a menu michael's main opposition to view it from through the prism of a french politics but actually. what the guardian pointed out here is that that's not really going of much of an impact on? the people become marcia and their policies the fact that you have at the far right kind of jumping up at the at their heels now or in deeds of one point ahead in the polls. but the fact that the greens scored 13% he will be seen as a major more a warning to amanda mccall you had to his environment minister nicolette - low who quit in fury last using the president was not doing
enough on the climate crisis. and now because you have so many young voters in particular identifying the climate and the environment is that t when thers one other central concerns -- matt coles i suppose -- maybe not entirely satisfactorory at d say approach to exit climbers and amber at the climbers in c. or his response to it on a domestic level is something that might not have to be looked at as a major. priority at the traditional left right divide is giving way to win the reflects fundamental class conflict that will define the the west in the twenty first century this is about. the new fractures of our emerging the new fracture lines at so julie joan in france however. that would be impacting on things even though they had a group -- that scored very lonely in the election but i suppose the broader trends what you're seeing is working houses whose livelihoods have been hollowed out by globalization pitted against. the socio economic groups who have benefited from much that's a consultant he's speaking to the guardian. at seeing that thehese are. trends of your to stay and to long culture war had the word we're looking out i suppose a
lot of people see as one of the positive aspects. at in this kind of an emerging culture war dot dot strong vote for green for the for green parties across the across europe this is the daily beast. at josephine and quickly and saying young voters to save the world might just save europe from public populist. not miss and so sing the environment as vital issue we sold surges in at in in in in populist groups bubut also at te time. this these particular part party did very well but then if there was another trying to identify it's the continuing collapse of the traditional parties began to look at the french. an example at the conservative political become party red mark indicates where seats have been lost or votes were lost compare. to twenty fourteen it's just right across the board it's like a it's a very concretely hey mitch of a party hemorrhaging basicallyy. and it's the sasame -- far att t the way it's the same for the socialist party at down here you can see mostly read that those maps on having the socialistt party course of bits of more or less walked on the previous election.
that's right and so it was here is because it isn't even to the lodge a protest about the way europe is wrong i suppose thatt spawned the shehe's now a days t is certainly and at it some peopople say that some of the major questions r really didn't. get approached in this in this campaign for example at this article here in la moaned at point sites that -- you have you've countries for example mark 412% of bulgarians have never left their country at work in another european country you have 7% of polish role so at working in other european countries you've intra european migration that. got discussed at all because of the broader question of of migration. from i would say the e. you kind of dominating the discussion so because the debate was sort of a often reduced to issues alva onto european. sentiment versus european integration at the actual nuts and bolts of how things are working as a consultant that much of the terms of the the old sort of racist i did a few white you integrate and no one has but if you're not white. then you become a target but maybe so and that's it and i think certain adviser or suit
losing at a loss a in in entry european migration -- germany and the uk obviously in some ways benefiting from from. this is kind of a side issue in many of us former aa manuaual vs the e former a and prime ministf francece who at was sitting. in for municicipal elections whh were taking place at the same times in barcelona gaze at she rigidly by birth. right kaplan castle and so was somewhat one summer can sing brave move you know european candidacy feel like *-*- this is really showing at what the future of europe could look like with a better but he he he a he we we still got a very. low low score he came in fifth place i would 12% about that did show what the future could look lilike well this is and that in fact it was this piece in a combat lan tick -- just before the election and i think it's on the top and quite there was one quote that sums up quite well his candidacy is a grand gesture one that represents the ideal of the e. u. but in practice. faucets campaign is a living example even a cautionary tale of a all politics is not is local and have that european ideal can be a vague and elusive obstruction he was basically.
if in france conversing okay good riddance stay there you're not coming back into french politics now and he was getting the same sort of treatment in reverse in the castle on on social media will not people saying you've been partially did in here you don't belong here s. his whole campaign got to focus on making his making the point that he was a just miss sort of kansas i had and you know thought thougught obviously didt frfriends of mine gems of barcelonona what convinced. castle with that sin that's a 12% at just -- finish with this some weird anomalies as well at the animalistic party. yeah i use a nice beagle ass theirr theft that front starts well i suppose it's one concrcre we have a beagle -- so you know we'll see and it's something i suppose on people and maybe three on q. no nothing and i sometimes. and so they got a third of the social party votes just can put things in perspective but they'll get him in the head of flowing fillable the former. right on man of nine to ten to set up his own party the good account on that was. so it's for it's even a little is the you know cats dogs to get experimented on that thing it's one of the salad there are real happiness in life you know.
i suppose the fillers people to come but the road in the concrete issue that they can feel certain of association was would put people vote that way in t the general election and if in the presidential election with the what they go that when. it's one of these things and it's it's it's the is that with the election. four tho
