Report Brexit What Happens Next Thread ---multiple merged threads. in House prices and the economy Posted June 21, 2021 1 hour ago, debtlessmanc said: Record low turnout in French local elections, by a long long way 68% did not vote. https://www.france24.com/en/europe/20210620-france-goes-to-the-polls-for-first-round-of-municipal-elections This is big news in my opinion, given a choice between fascists and the official EU candidate (in effect) people could not care less. This is what happens when the central EU message is a distrust of true democracy. I watch France as it is a pretty good bellwether for Europe and the EU. The French are normally very politically aware. I predict this for all the EU, voting will become seen as an irrelevance, what will follow will be direct action of some sort. The gilets Jaunes may just be the beginning We have similar turnouts in local elections, so by your reckoning we are fecked?
