  • Hard Evidence: how much power can the far right wield in European parliament? (Sofia Vasilopoulou, The Conversation) With all the talk about an earthquake in the EU, some far-right parties also lost ground. Although the number of seats for the far right increased almost 50% from 49 to 72. the author points out that these parties are largely nationalistic and will not form alliances with delegates from other countries. They also have a history of being disengaged from the work of the European Parliament and the fact that they comprise almost 10% of the body will probably go largely unnoticed.

How the far right parties fared.

  • From a diverse group of judges, a unanimous opinion on same-sex marriage (Robert Barnes, The Washington Post) Political philosophy appears to have faded from judicial actions regarding gay marriage, as have questions of individual morality, while civil rights have become the dominant consideration. The U.S. has seen "an unbroken wave of victories across the country to supporters of same-sex marriage".
