I'm surprised how little there's been news about the EU elections. I've seen maybe two debates (note: of course I can be very blind at times, so this doesn't mean there's been only two debates
) and yesterday I got three pamphlets from candidates (of which two were from the same party; one personal and one for the whole party). And that's it. I've seen more talk about Eurovision than the elections, and I have a feeling the latter should be more important...
The lack of, well, everything to do with the elections is quite noticeable if compared to the parliament elections we had some time ago. It was everywhere for weeks: there were debates on TV, there were interviews on TV, there were interviews in newspapers, the amount of pamphlets I got made me feel like Harry Potter receiving his Hogwarts letters
, there were people on the streets giving you pamphlets whether you wanted it or not (the only way to get rid of them was to let someone else be their victim and then quickly pass, averting eye contact; or saying "I already voted") and the sides of the roads were filled with faces and numbers of the candidates. Even the most lonely in the middle of nowhere -roads had somebody's face there.
But the EU elections? Nope, hardly anything at all.
