Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

European Tribune - First EP aggregated poll
FN up 19 seats to 22, so a new ugly group could get formed around it.

Marine Le Pen is of course busy building an agreement with, at least, Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs and Partij voor de Vrijheid, probably also Vlaams Belang.

That's a block of 32 seats.

Other (more extreme) far-right parties among the NI have a combined 11 seats:

  • HU: Jobbik 3 (NI)
  • GR: Chrysi Aygi 3 (New)
  • SE: Sverigedemokraterna 1 (New)
  • CZ: Úsvit přímé demokracie Tomia Okamury 1 (New)
  • SK: Ludová strana Naše Slovensko 1 (New)
  • BU: Natsionalno Obedinenie Ataka 1 (New)
  • BU: Natzionalen Front za Spasenie na Bulgaria 1 (New)

Some of these might be compatible with the UKIP-dominated EFD (which also has a range from colourful loons to dangerous fools). At any rate, all right-of-centre-right forces (ECR+AfD, EFD, the FN block and Jobbik & co, and I won't exclude the Tories and ODS) would combine to 122 seats, or 16.2%...

Counting the present Non-Inscrits I find at least 21 in that bloc, it is faster to list those that don't belong: Hans-Peter Martin 3, UPyD 1, DUP 1. Article 50 (NE) (1 seat) has no wikipedia article.

So from 56+33+21 = 110 (out of 761) to 122 (out of 751). Gains, but smaller then those of the soc-dems and the left.

BTW, Ataka is not new (it's "Attack" in the Wikipedia list), nor in practice the other from Bulgaria which is an Ataka break-away.

Ah, right. Thanks, changed to reflect that.

Turns out Article 50 is a PVV split, so 111 today.
