AL JAZEERA: Another big Brexit week begins. What's expected?

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 18/3/2019

Description

Robert Ford, a politics professor at the University of Manchester, points out that while the UK participation in the European elections could provide a contingent of additional allies for other eurosceptic forces - who are likely to do well - in the European Parliament, "it won't make a difference to EU institutions or campaigns everywhere else". 

"The European Parliament elections aren't about Europe anywhere," Ford said, "people tend to vote according to national agendas and national political context."
