Topics Polemics Politics World

Populist, right-wing and Eurosceptic parties surged in this month’s European elections, delivering a stunning blow to the European Union and ruling national elites. So who are these parties? What do their voters want? Is the ‘far right’ really on the march, as the mainstream media would have us believe? Here, Fraser Myers explains what is really driving voters towards the populist right – and why dismissing this trend as a resurgent ‘fascism’ is guaranteed to backfire. Watch, share and let us know what you think in the comments.
