big sort of the smalling right wing and euro skeptic parties along with the greens route to europe's establishment in parliamentary elections the vote attracted the highest turnout of 20. in the u.k. the party mean times expected to win big leaving the conservatives and labor in tatters. britain's prime minister trees of may stepping down after failing to get a break through the contest for a place is already up and running. good
morning 10 am monday the 27th of may here in moscow you're watching r t international with me kevin owen our top story this morning on that big european vote with most votes now counted in that fiercely contested set of european parliament elections and to start with one party's along with the greens in the liberals are set to win big while projections show the established centrist bloc lost its grip on parliament and in perhaps another surprise of the night so overall voter turnout was the highest in 20 years at over 50 percent. more detail on this so it captured the public's imagination the sort of speak more than 50 percent turnout in europe one of the big surprises is the amount of in this
morning. high turnout many might have thought would have favored the euro file parties in fact its favorites the anti establishment parties we've seen so far from those polls coming out that the center right and the center left have lost significant ground in the european parliament and that could be a big shake up as we seeing much smaller parties around the un just stops with parties gaining ground now since the european parliament's inception back in the 1970s the grand coalition has pretty much been the cornerstone of power setting the agenda in the parliament but the parties that make up that growing coalition have hemorrhaged significant seats in this election and look like they'll have to share some of those smaller parties you may want big concession in a bid to keep the status quo and to support their agenda over the next 5 years now we also saw a big surge in anti establishment vote across the block with anti establishment
parties here in france and also in italy topping the polls let's start in italy now we're meant to yourself be nice believe came top of the crop in italy with the projection that they can take $28.00 seats that would be up 3 seats from this time around in 2014 a big it's something we all believe which is currently in governing coalition in italy. a lot of support showing that the italians overseas seem to agree with itself the nice idea is for the feet over europe he said that this vote showed the people with fed up with the. little dog that you get your today's vote shows that the rules of europe are changing it's not just due to the choice of the italians but also of the french the germans the british and gary and the poles in the swedes the danes
a new europe is born. we're hearing from a win also for another anti establishment party and that is moving the pen's national rally they took the poll hit with just over 23 percent of the vote that's been predicted for several weeks but it comes at a difficult time for president michael many people here thought that this could be essentially a referendum on him and his presidency while his party did come in just a nudge and in 2nd place many people think that this is essentially people saying that they don't believe in him he was so concerned about these elections in fact that he got involved personally in the last few days despite the fact that he's not only the gallup poll but despite that his party still couldn't beat the national rally them up in the pan has been calling for these anti a european party these anti establishment parties to band together to form
a big group in the european union and to create a strong voice and she's also calling for a shakeup in politics here in france. the president has no other choice but to dissolve the national assembly and the last one to democratic voting system in order to better represent this country's majority political opinion the feeding of traditional parties and the polarization between the national party and the renaissance party confirms that the political scene is now split butt. we nationalists and globalists and that's what dominates our political life well if we look to the east of europe to countries like poland and hungary we saw all the governing bodies there winning big again showing support in those countries that have been given perhaps an anti european message in these elections and the last year but moving to central europe now in austria we saw what huge gains for the governing party over the past teams doing incredibly well taking more
than 30 percent of the vote and that comes just a week after his government was hit by a scandal and is said to be facing a vote of no confidence later on in the austrian parliament but sebastian kurtz said that he was pleased overwhelmed by this vote and again it shows that despite the scandal public showing their support in the chancellor. i'm usually not to the last 4 words but i'm almost speechless we expected a lot we were optimistic but this is a fantastic result this is never happened before we achieve the best results of all time with the biggest distance from 2nd time it is simply a man believed to be a big significant surprise in change in the european parliament is the support for green parties across the block particularly in countries such as germany and here
in france where those green parties took a significant share of the vote over 20 percent in germany and around 13 percent here in france it means now that they will actually form quite a big block themselves in the european parliament with a projection of 70 seats if that's correct that's up 20 seats from 2014 the reality is the european parliament that we see from these results is going to be very different to the one that we have known in the past and the reality is it's going to be. very difficult for the old guard to watch and to continue to push their agenda and change turn show devinsky in paris things from the view there we go back to france in a bit as well for another view on it but if folks want some new britain next then this morning nigel farage is newly for breakfast party is also on course for victory in the elections u.k. was of course not meant to take part in the bar that all they should have left to you by now neck showed you edwards dashti and picks britain's current bricks it could learn from them. the eve fight must be one of the strangest elections in
political british history the united kingdom which is just about to leave the european union has just elected candidates to represent britain in the block and this absolutely fossil setup can be best summed up in famous lines in alice in wonderland by the great british royals the newest how. would you tell me please which we will to go through that depends a good deal only where you want to get to i do much cow why then it doesn't matter which way you go but even stranger than voting in an election to an organization that the u.k. choice to leave almost 3 years ago is the fact that the party that's won the lion's share of the vote is a newly formed direct party or to still the party absolutely knows the european union and what its parliament stands for now despite nigel farage his party being in its infancy stage has actually no doubt shaken up the political spectrum and somehow managed to unite president right now although the party doesn't yet have a manifesto it's left to victory under one clear objective we went big old. we will
kill off any prospects of parliament forcing a strike a referendum apollo's because they learn they won't learn. if we vote for the brics that party or we went all the 1st day we demand that we are part of that negotiating same to make sure that we do leave the european union of the 31st of october so the goal of the party was to win the election so that it would never have to participate in them again sounds like something carol himself would be quite proud of and in order for this to happen nigel farage vowed to put the shucked a 2 party system out of its misery and in doing so managed to unite politicians from across the political spectrum who in other circumstances may have never politically aligned and on the one hand you have your craft foxes who's a former member of the revolution. communist party who at times has been
unapologetic controversial when there's a lot of and i take my lead for millions of. you showed incredible. incisive. defamation and on the other hand you have the likes of paul knocked on his the former head of an advocate. and even bringing back the death penalty and see that's the twist and breck's is neither presented as a left wing issue or right wing issue we witness the birth of a new political trajectory it's called anti establishment and according to a study conducted earlier this year by you can a change in europe when asked whether people used to. say in relation to which side of the bricks it fence they sat on what we saw as the proportion of leavers using we leapt from 44 percent to 65 percent after the referendum and the results were quite similar in terms of the remaining us who saw an increase to a whopping 70 percent but when the same question was asked about labor and the conservatives only around a quarter agreed with the increase of time in relation to their respective parties
you see in these elections it didn't matter whether you're a communist or a puritan what matters is where you stood on the issue so forget the tories and labor pensions and health care high or low taxes right now is the only dividing line in the u.k. and unlike alice in carol's alice in wonderland this is not a jury. r.t. . or the for you. go back to france for joining us now to get a bit more insight is for a politician who. feeds. well to specifically. talk about the broader europe what do you make of the numbers so far was the biggest surprise for you. what we know so far about how the people of. well i will say that of course the big surprise is that the green party is going up very very broadly but it doesn't mean that it is enough to
save the so-called system and of course we see that many skeptical parties are one day election throughout europe and i think that we are facing a new a proxy for a new era for europe but i don't see how they will solve the problems of europe because as we were are saying the union is split and it will be very very difficult to find a compromise between partly between lead to ideological very opposite but i do believe that this europe the present europe is dead it is a truth but it will last at least 10 years to find a new way because we need call variation in europe but we don't need interger ism we don't need you know europe an ideologically and let's say privately europe so is
that what went wrong for the traditional sense of left center right that kind of held control for so long people just got fed up with it well it is true that the europe we had until now has been rejected by the nations and we need of course i am in favor of a europe of nations and not a technocratic europe which has been and by the coalition and this parties will have the lessons learned and to think. father one of the lessons below and then you think for the center left center right now i know it hasn't been learned yet of course this vote is very very strong. you know a lot a lurch but in fact people like michael steele believe still dream of a supernational europe which had been rejected by many many states even by germany if you look at the position of germany it is opposite to my core but i think that
the is a big blow for michael and he will have a lot of difficult is let's say to have these is ideas to go through in this new parliament but it will be very also very difficult to find a compromise because of this. you know parliament well let's talk about your country and talk it a bit more about. popular right now but given his own popularity and i suppose you could say that marine le pen could have actually done better to try and capitalized on his popularity or not as she did well really. yes in fact i think that. you know le pen won but some pool said that she should have won by let's say a big margin a bigger margin like it had been done in fact i think that you know a lot of french who are let's say. respond to those is
my call of feel to bar you know national prompts the rally so i think that in fact. this vote has been let's say twisted in many terms and of course it doesn't show really what should be the french if you through europe french are you know in favor of europe but out in favor of a corporation in europe not surprised national advocated by my court but as michael has tried to emphasize you know all the cows that will come with a victory by really look then you know it has run out i think and of course came to the result we have if you hold him back this is very very artificial and i don't think that this is something a long term and spatially i don't believe that in many places where my core as
a leader it will be as a result paul the next election because there is a big difference between the european election and let's say as i'm eunice of all the city election next year or ought to leave it there thank you former m.p. and current mayor of mace on the 5th there in front i give you time much appreciated. you should be influences a usually who am i go for fashion style tips yeah but the european commission that was seeing the benefits of same social media campaign and is trying to get a positive message across about the block to young people. and press for them on the i have the impression that i was in the novel 94 and people are convinced that this is good they convince that they are acting in the interest of the citizens of the european union but one of the main objectives of the event is to inject a european angle into young people's social platforms then but the commission's representative stated the idea of posting bloggers at the e.u. h.q.
is in fact nothing new. it's something we do very often for journalists we thought it would be a good idea to do it for you you tubers as the media that takes information and relays it to your audience who is explained the explain to us that misinformation is the use of real facts to spread political ideas that contradict those of the european union they will said that all this is organized by russia to destabilise democratic regimes fortunately european democracy is stronger than the us but we were explain the basics we talked about generally accepted ideas about europe for example that the e.u. provides competition they said we're here to debug these generally accepted notions in fact the message was not to tell us that the european union fails to create competition at a global level but to explain to us that this is a good thing and they believe that the reason why many people support ideas that contradict their policies and ideologies is external influence but they they are
acting out of the best of intentions kind of puff the brake moreover the fight for the british leadership getting underway as the public make it clear that breaks it means brecht's it seems more on that when we come back. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next about different clubs on one hand it is logical to go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to suppressing. if. i'm going to talk about football not be or else you can think i was going to do.
by the way what is that that's like here. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sport i'm show business i'll see you there. by the very good morning to 19 moscow time now this monday thanks for watching r.t. international's next focusing on the u.k. where the leadership race replaced. the prime minister announced he's stepping down on june the 7th after failing to get a plan through many times as conservative m.p.'s are to nominate 2 or more candidates with 9 now to claim they're going to join the leadership race the tories
believe in further need a leader will be in place by the end of june if all goes to plan so it means that for now to reason they will still be in office during both the contest and donald trump's 1st official state visit to the u.k. next month the next prime minister is supposed to stay in charge until a general election in 2022 or maybe before that if one is called earlier so with many senior members of the conservative party lined up to head the government we take a look next to the some of the front runners for number 10 as they stand at the moment . the goals of the road show if you will cope. with the world. is going to the white when you see 136 living here so i think the comparison with 936 sees these
certainly right you get me you know why i don't get it all right now. is the soviet union stop people leaving and the lesson from history is clear. if you turn the e.u. club into a prison the desire to get out of the one diminish it will grow and we won't be the only person other will want to escape. channels like better known as russia today what better view is to believe that truth is relative in the fact that it was the kremlin official narrative.
vince cable jameco been someone who has a clear plan albright said he wants to remind ourselves because he's quite cold and waits until he sees everything to be able to for instance that he's going to be the next one not enough then because i think everyone else to. probably. you know maybe i have. also brought in a more real day the u.s. army veteran the opportunity to share stories on home military service influenced
their lives that got some of the expected results thousands responded on twitter many spoke of an inability to live a normal life depression and suicides among friends and fellow servicemen the u.s. army issued a formal response then thanking everyone for their stories and highlighting the importance of talking about psychological problems. has serving impacted you a combat cocktail p.t.s.d. severe depression anxiety isolation suicide attempts never ending rage it cost me my relationship with my eldest son and my grandson it cost some of my men so much more how did serving impact me ask my family i spend sleepless nights wrecked with guilt because none of the horror and suffering i've seen even matters because we're all just grist for a pay mill run by med men because if i speak up and say and this war is wrong my battle buddies fighting their own demons ostracized me do y. get a reply for the dad they can't get anymore my husband became an ex because of his
p.t.s.d. then he got agent orange cancer and died my cousin died of a rad chemical cancer my other cousin is in remission from the same thing at the moment and also has p.t.s.d. . to everyone who responded to this thread thank you for sharing your story your stories are real they matter and they may help others in similar situations the army is committed to the health safety and well being of our soldiers the suicides a major issue among veterans despite the reduction of the overall right $6000.00 kill themselves every year mostly with firearms according to statistics since young service 134 years old are especially at risk the vice president for veterans for peace u.s. told us many soldiers are left to deal with their problems by themselves and america people like to put soldiers on pedestals and create heroes out of their
soldiers are last in their bind where they are being simultaneously hero worshipped and having to deal with really trying to mandate. experiences in life has it really negatively impacted my life and way is that i'm just not even yet comfortable speaking about it made it difficult for me to have a family i had p.t.s.d. and depression for a decade without even realizing it is not anything i would wish on anybody to join the military and yet i know some for some people it's their only way to try to get out of where they're at it's no wonder it's side rates are so high amongst the veteran population because that kind of intense experience from people are still trying to figure out who they are as a person is just it could only. make life more difficult for the individual.
