Less than 50 days left to the election and the British media has still not bothered to cover the European Union in proper detail. How is “the public” going to make a decision on something which is so alien to them? As it seems now, the election will end up being one of these “for or against the EU”, instead about party politics. Most voters forget how much party politics that is actually being done in Brussels. It makes a great difference if one vote for the liberals or the socialists because one of them will be leading the European Union through the worse recession for decades (are you also tired of that cliché by now?)
The most exciting aspect of this whole election is “When will the British Media start to cover it?” I might dream a bit too much if I expect them to cover it like a national election however considering the amount of time, energy and money they spent on covering the US election, I think that we could expect a bit more investigative journalism than what we have seen so far.
