The EU elections effect: are we seeing a shift of power?

European Elections have never, it seems, been so significant and the fall-out keeps on coming. In France the leader of the centre right party Les Républicains, Laurent Wauquiez, has resigned. Citing the poor results for his party in the European elections eight days ago And it does not end there. Angela Merkel’s Prime Minister Andrea Nahles, of the SDP has walked. Another party caned by the voters. The political landscape of Europe is changing, or so we are led to think.
