    When Europe Goes to the polls on 23 May, the right-wing campaign spearheaded by Italy's Matteo Salvini - leader of The League - could change the shape of European politics.

    Salvini is trying to create a nationalist bloc that would be the second biggest force in the European parliament.
    But where would that leave the centre-left or social democrats, who for decades were a natural party of government across Europe?
    Three former leaders - Tony Blair, Matteo Renzi and Helle Thorning-Schmidt - offer their thoughts.
    Our Diplomatic Editor Mark Urban reports.

Every politician is the same, they're opportunists interested only in gaining power. Doesn't matter if they call themselves left or right.

Everything Blair has ever said to amy camera has always been campaign rhetoric in one form or another. The man is simply incapable of saying anything of substance. His liberal wing is bereft of ideas and enthralled to finance. Next.

Weather it's the United States, Europe, and Asia, the citizens of first world countries don't want their countries turned into third world shit holes, and destroyed by unchecked globalism, and out of control mass immigration policies. Average citizens want their countries back, don't want an all powerful one world government running their lives, and want their governments to focus on the needs, and wants of their hard working, tax paying citizens first, and foremost, before letting in mass swarms of third world trash, who refuse to assimilate with their host country, refuse to work, and demand all the free stuff they could ever want at the expense of the host countries taxpayers. nuff said.

Centre left political parties had no answer to the question: If jihadists could execute half a magazine staff in Paris in January 2015, attack and kill hundreds in Paris in November 2015, run over and kill 84 in Nice in July 2016, blow up 34 in Brussels in 2016, dozens attacked in London and bombed in Manchester, why should citizens not vote for the populists who promise to protect them?

It seems Europeans can’t learn. You guys were fascists before, and authoritarian, but you still want to have it again after learning it didn’t work so well. Turning right will only bring corruption to Europe and more war. And after learning it won’t work europeans will try to rise up again and bring even more damage to Europe. Or you can chose democracy and stop acting like the Middle East situation was not you fault. It is 90 percent Europe’s fault. You made the borders you took there land making them poorer and you left as if nothing happens as if they could easily recover.

It's telling that these BBC propagandists treat populism -- political movements favored by, well, a *majority* of the population -- as a bad thing.

Always amazes me how the media can see the Popularists as some kind of outsiders. Surely Polpularist means popular and thus the majority= democracy? How the hell they manage to make this be looked at as outsiders I just can't understand....it's the majority. Sooner the Brexit Party are in power and abolish the biased BBC the better. £160 per yr saving without bias would be great. We simply don't want to be one big happy family giving up our cultures, heritage and beliefs. We want to be independent but still get on with each other without Big Brother (EU) telling us what we can and can't do!

The game is up. In the words of Reagan, "If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of Liberalism". We know what social democracy means ... it means theft via taxation, mass surveillance in the name of security and authoritarian rule where any opposition sees you branded of having some kind of phobia or 'ism and that your job must be taken from you.

You can not take in any and all. Refugee status should be for people with European beliefs and values, not for people that want Europe to adopt their extremist religious ideals. No allegiance to the host's laws => go back to whence you came from.

OK, I watched this garbage all the way to the end and the part the social democrats are missing is that the greatest threat extant to their social democratic values are the millions of Muslims pouring in to their continent. Now, I can't believe they are that stupid, so, I must conclude that the Social Democrats are not really social democrats at all anymore but they are in fact liars, they are in truth and reality totalitarian Muslims. They may not even know it, but, they are in fact Muslims in their hearts. Which is a problem for the rest of the people in Europe who are not Muslims and do not want to be.

The Left in Germany are too busy supporting the economic migrants and the others with their hands out. This disgusts those who have to compete with them for public services of housing, health education and work. The middle classes do not have to compete with migrants for any of these, they can buy their own housing health education and work enclaves which are out of reach financially, of the economic migrants; for now anyway.

None of the politicians they spoke to are Social Democrats by any historical standard. They are a bunch of milquetoast, centrist liberals who have abandoned the working class and now represent the elite, like themselves.

Populism is not the dirty word that these bullshit liberals claim it is. The EU was founded by Nazis: the Nazi ideal was Europe united under Germany; the EU is Europe united under Germany. So who really won?

Quite unbelievably, even the Tory campaign tagline for the EU elections is a total LIE, when on earth will the lies and manipulation from May's Government stop??!! It says "Getting Brexit done in the National Interest"!! Yet, within a year of the Brexit vote, Theresa May and her ministers had incredibly signed up to 5 separate EU Council agreements TRANSFERRING military powers to the European Commission!! Since when is handing over the UK's military to the EU in THE NATIONAL INTEREST??? This is TREASON!! The PM’s withdrawal proposals now seek to keep the UK in EVERYTHING which has been agreed since November 2016. The mainstream media or our politicians won't even talk about this or indeed the consequences of the Lisbon Treaty, including Farage/The Brexit Party, which is shameful! So for more info on our Defense 'Handover' check-out the Veterans for Britain website. The mainstream media will tell you NOTHING!​

The populist right doesn't bother me at all. Ethnic groups have a right to self determination. Even White/Europeans. Deal with it. No people is under an obligation to allow immigration to the point they become ethnic minorities in their own country.

It is amazing that Tony Blair is presented as representing Social Democracy. He worked closely with George W. Bush and Cheney in the destruction of Iraq, with his Lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction (he is as right-wing as George W. Bush and Cheney). There is an underlying assumption that 'populist' Parties are "right-wing". The EU follows Neoliberal Economics, and its Foreign Policy is determined by NATO. US/NATO have attacked and destroyed Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen. More recently Europe has "unrecognised" Maduro as President of Venezuela - an extremity of cynicism, denounced by UN Investigator Alfred de Zayas. Which way will Europe swing on Iran? European ideology has changed little since the 19th Century (it still exploits Africa). A few 'liberal ideals' mean nothing when faced with Europe's age-old aggression against Third World nations.

Right wing extremists are dangerous for European civilization. Central European extremists such as Princip, Hitler and Mussolini caused the WW1 & WW2 which caused the deaths of millions of Europeans. Great European cities were burned down. We must eliminate the right wing extremists by any means necessary. Russian occupation kept the peace in Central and Eastern Europe by eliminating extremists by any means necessary. We should bring the Russians in if we can't do it by ourselves.
