British PM Theresa May throws in the towel as
Britain and Europe turn hard right in EU elections -
Marine Le Pen’s far-right party edged just ahead of the centrist
alliance of President Emmanuel Macron in exit polls as French voters
led what pollsters expected to be a nationalist surge in an EU
parliament election on Sunday.
The defeat for the president was narrow amid a sharply increased
turnout that was matched across the continent in what Brussels is
portraying as a positive sign, in spite of gains for anti-EU groups.
But it was a bitter blow for those who hope the French leader can
inspire Europeans to embrace the Union as an answer rather than as
part of the problem in the face of social change that has bewildered
and frustrated some voters.
