Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Julien Frisch: European Parliament elections 2009 (69): Some reflections on the non-campaign
The EP elections are coming closer and closer, but I still don't really have the feeling that there is a real campaign going on, even less than 2 1/2 month before the big event.

Some little discussions here, some small campaign activities there, electoral lists are getting finalised, materials prepared. But I don't feel a real debate about the issues - not to speak about the persons, the latter being roughly quieted thanks to more or less tacit agreement on Barroso as coming EU Commission president.

I suppose that things might get a bit more visible, more lively in the near future, but I am still kind of disappointed that besides some increasing online activity of some candidates there is not much politics happening, especially not on the European level.
