With European Union bosses working overtime to finish crushing what remains of national sovereignty and self-government in Europe, the public across much of the bloc appears to have had enough. In elections to the European “Parliament” — not a true legislative body in the traditionally understood sense of the word, but the only elected outfit in Brussels nonetheless — political parties opposed to the ongoing EU takeover made massive gains.
