Five Star, led by former comedian Beppe Grillo, failed to make it to the second round of voting in Genoa, Palermo, Parma and Verona, according to projections. Centrist-oriented parties fared better than expected in the approximately 1,000 towns and cities that voted, with the second round scheduled for June 25. Turnout was just over 60 percent. A multi-party deal on a new electoral law unraveled last week, making it highly unlikely that a snap national vote will be held this year. Investors had been concerned that an election in 2017 could lead to either a hung parliament or a win for the anti-establishment Five Star. The current legislature expires in 2018.
The ruling Democratic Party and the Five Star had been neck-and-neck in Italian national opinion polls, with each drawing about 30 percent support, but as Reuters notes, Sunday's election appeared to follow a similar sudden and unexplained collapse of support for anti-establishment parties, when not only polls but the public mood had predicted very different outcomes. In Vox - Pop features on UK TV and radio ahead of the actual vote it was hard to find people who would admit they planned to vote Labour with the National Front in France and the anti-EU group UKIP in Britain both suffering poll failures this past week.
In Britain of course we are well aware of the Muslim electoral system, one Imam, one thousand votes, which now exists alongside our traditional one person one vote system.
Front National was going to lose in France, the establishment parties gang up on them everytime, by agreeing that only the party with the best chance of beating FN will campaign seriously while other parties tell their supporters to vote tactically to keep FN out. This time Marine Le Pen got a step closer to winning, next time, presuming French democracy has not been replaced by an Islamic theocracy by 2020, they might prevail despite the efforts of the corrupt ruling elite.
UKIP was going to be wiped out this time around bar a charismatic new leader emerging, because as their name says they are the UK independence party, with UK heading for exit they're reason to exist disappeared, they need a new one.
Italy, no idea. What we have seen so far only relates to the first round of voting and is the projections from exit polls. In both Italy's municipal elections and France's parliamentary elections things could change. But it also does feel like everything is going EU's way, the recent elections are spun in that way.LL The failure of Britain's Conservastives to win an overall majority is being presented as a great victory for Labour, but the reality is even if Labour could persuade ALL the minor parties to vote with them (and that's never going to happen) they could only defeat the Conservatives by a single vote in pasrliament. As things stand the seven Northern Ireland Republican MPs do not attend the London Parliament because they reject its authority, it would be very unusual for the DUP (Northern Ireland Unionists) to vote with Labour and so the Conservatives are quite secure in power despite all the hype.
I believe this chaos was a failed attempt to derail Brexit after the plan to rig the referendum vote (over 100% turnout in some inner city districts) was thwarted. If Brexit is screwed up and the majority of the electorate are fucked over by the corrupt elite and the university brainwashed millenials, then I believe the next stage in the breakdown of democracy will be bloody and brutal. Let's look at the options:
France, Britain, and Italy elections are rigged. Elites carry on with policy of importing a supine and compliant Muslim majority. The masses take offence at being treated as coprophiliacs (people who enjoy being shat on,) and civil unrest ensues.
The natives are willing to accept totalitarianism just to keep the state handouts flowing. Never underestimate the stupidity of the common man.
The elite tell us nationalism is really dying (amid all the ISIS bombs?) and the masses accept they will be replace by illiterate third world barbarians 'because multiculturalism'. The common people are not this stupid.
