In the last European elections in three countries (Great Britain, Denmark and France) radical right-wing nationalist parties became the strongest forces. The number of MEPs belonging to these parties has grown considerably and they are spread all over the right political spectrum. The term “Radical Right” seems to be too vague as it applies to a spectrum including open neo-Nazis and right-wing parties having adapted their appearance to suit mainstream media.
Can right-wing parties with a nationalist and populist agenda come into power even in the big states of the EU? Of which character is the challenge they are posing to the Left?
