    Default Socialists and left linging Democrats routed in EU elections

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/european_elections

    The most disturbing and interesting parts are in these short paragraphs...

    "The Socialists, who dominated the last vote in 2004, suffered a stinging defeat, barely clinging to the No. 2 spot.

    "Tonight is a very difficult evening for Socialists in many nations in Europe," said Martin Schulz, the leader of the Socialists in the European Parliament. "(We will) continue to fight for social democracy in Europe."

    Far-right groups and other fringe parties gained in record low turnout estimated at 43.5 percent of 375 million eligible, reflecting widespread disenchantment with the continentwide legislature.

    Britain elected its first extreme-right politician to the European Parliament, with the British National Party winning a seat in northern England's Yorkshire and the Humber district.

    The far-right party, which does not accept nonwhites as members, was expected to possibly win further seats as more results in Britain were announced."

    This guy is an ass, I really do not appreciate it when people confuse or lump in Socialists with Social Democrats or make reference to socialism and social democracy in the same light. Two seperate things altogether, if he wasn't such a dumbass he would have said "democratic socialism" instead of social democracy
