European elections: 'Immigration is a red herring'
Issued on: Modified:
Ahead of the European Parliament elections in May, various new political groups have been formed. One of them, founded by former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, is European Spring. Policy coordinator David Adler gives us his perspective on the state of the EU. He tells FRANCE 24 that immigration is a "red herring". The EU, he says, is in the midst of a profound crisis. Austerity prevails and as a result, an "explosion of discontent" and bubbling resentment follow from failed policies.
