Meet the Tea Party — European edition
Europe finally has its own Tea Party. Or something like it.
Last weekend, citizens of 21 nations elected members of a new European parliament. The result? An outpouring of rage.
Angry voters across the continent and Britain cast ballots for protest parties, mostly on the far right, which doubled their number of seats and now account for close to one third of the parliament. French Prime Minister Manuel Vallis called the vote more than a news alert . . . it is a shock, an earthquake.
