Populism will change Brussels within a year: Steve Bannon

Populism will change Brussels within a year: Steve Bannon, by Tom Kington.

“It’s not the end of the EU, but people want their nations back,” [former White House strategist Steve Bannon] said. He claimed that populist governments in Europe had ended President Macron of France’s dream of closer EU integration. “His project is dead — Italy and Hungary killed it,” he said.

There was further evidence of the populist swell yesterday when Janez Jansa, an ally of the anti-migrant Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, won 25 per cent of the vote in elections in Slovenia.
