Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree the turnout was disappointing, but with the Conservatives and (to a lesser extent) Labour in turmoil and riven with divisions, may of their supporters could have sat this one out. On a purely practical level, many voters might have thought there wasn't much point in voting for MEPs who would only have seats for a few months. Anyone who didn't have strong views on Brexit, one way or the other, had little incentive to vote.  In that context, an increase in overall turnout is not a particularly bad outcome, although I think it a pity the increase wasn't greater.
