European and Middle-East Politics

I'M BEGINNING TO get excited about European politics. OK, not really 'excited', but I'm paying more attention as the election season hits.

In yesterday's European Parliament elections far-left parties took a beating -- particularly in France where President Sarkosy's UMP party trounced the Socialist Party candidates. A round-up can be found here. Don't miss the bit about how bad Gordon Brown's Labour Party fared.

There's also some potentially good news coming out of the national elections in Lebanon.

Really, I'm starting to like this.
