Gordon’s soggy chips

Well, if Gordon Brown does get his chips pissed on tonight in the EU elections, he can take some (scant) comfort from the fact that he won’t be the only government party leader left clutching soggy newspaper and inedible potato-based foodstuff.

The lowest turnout on record – about 43% – and the almost certain swing towards extremist parties in a ‘punishment’ vote will have significant ramifications for the future of the EU and its influence on our country.

What I’m not too happy with is the nature of some of the bedfellows our mostly moderate parties will have to work with.

The far right and other extremists gaining seats in the EU Parliament indicate a worrying time ahead.

Yes, we may get changes in the EU and maybe some to our advantage – but at what cost?
