What happened to the Far Right threat to the EU? Despite all the threats and resulting headlines it has disappeared. Probably because they may no longer be a threat to the EU, but the saviour – for neo-liberal interests. Odd. You read about it nowhere. The usual media pundits do not mention it anymore, nor those analytically sharp Lefties. Even the EU political class does not warn of it anymore: the Far Right as a threat to the existence of the European Union. Domestically Far Right parties, including those in government, when convenient, still hold up the EU as a threat to national identity, but this has become ritualistic posturing and playing to the domestic gallery. There is no more talk of exit or smashing the EU. The polemic has been toned down.
