Conservatives enjoy big win in European Parliament elections
That's what many voters seem to have said today to the left-leaning European Parliament.
Conservative candidates won the election with their "Eurosceptic" platform, that is, their promise to curtail immigration, uphold European values, and rein in socialist policies.
Will this affect recent EU efforts to ease sanctions on Castrogonia?
And is this a sign of things to come in the U.S.A. in November?

Right-wing earthquake rocks EU elections
The National Front has come first in France's elections to the European Parliament according to exit polls in what PM Manuel Valls has declared a "political earthquake".
Eurosceptic parties also made big gains in other European countries - also coming first in Denmark.
The centre-right EPP looked set to be the biggest bloc in parliament.
Turnout in the election was 43.1%, according to provisional European Parliament figures - up on last time.
In France, the National Front (FN) leader Marine Le Pen said after seeing exit polls: "Clearly we are in the lead".
But a statement by her party accused the French government of "massive fraud" and "industrial scale" vote-rigging, saying Prime Minister Valls had tried to prevent the National Front winning "by the most odious means".
It said in many polling stations voters were given incorrect papers or did not get ballots that included the National Front.
The election is the biggest exercise in multi-national democracy in the world.
The parliament's powers have expanded since the last election in 2009.
