Winners and spinners: Who won the EU elections? (part 1)

For the first time in 20 years, more Europeans turned out to vote in the EU elections than those who stayed at home. The result: a patchwork European Parliament, with more populists, nationalists, far-right and far-left elements; the centre-right and centre-left both diminished; and a "green wave" of new MEPs who ran on environment-oriented tickets.


In our programme we ask who the true winners are; how emboldened populist factions will colour the parliament’s next five-year period; and whether we are all in fact green now, as almost every political party rushes to display its green credentials.
