It looks like right-wing / conservative and EU-skeptic parties are the winners of this election.
As expected, pro-EU media are trying to put the focus on immigration, and are already warning of an alleged "rise of racism", instead of talking about the real reasons for the election results:
the peoples discontent with the ongoing centralistic agenda throughout the european nations.
Any criticism towards centralistic EU-policy is stigmatised as "anti-European".
The EU's centralism and disregard for the peoples souvereignty in their respective countries had to inevitably lead to nationalism as a counter movement. This election was a protest vote - and brussels should better take notice.
I'll never vote LIB Dem again, I did last time and they raised the tuition fees that they opposed before I voted. Scum.

I now live in Spain which is VERY close to Marocco.
When I go out during the day, I see women covered with "jihabs" or whatever those things are called. There are bars and tiny 24hr stores that are owned by Arabs opening left and right.
In our apartment complex, the last few months several Brits MOVED OUT and Arabs MOVED IN. When we hear people talking downstairs in the "recreation area"...we hear ARABIC.
Don't get me wrong. I am the least person on this planet who is racist, not even remotely. But it is about a healthy balance which I don't think is there anymore. If you go outside and think you're in Tehran (and sometimes I really do)...something is wrong.
