The result still leaves the EU parliament dominated by traditional centre right and centre left parties but for how long will that remain the case?  And what do these results tells us more broadly about the appeal of the far right in Europe.

Adrian Goldberg talks to Seema Syeda is a Marseille-based researcher working on European politics for UK-based campaign group Another Europe Is Possible; and Linda Kalcher, the Executive Director of a pan-European think tank Strategic Perspectives who is based in Belgium.
