Tracking: European Parliament elections 2009 (32): Campaign predictions

For a February 2009 opinion poll predicting the outcomes of the elections go here.

Jon is predicting the content of the European election campaigns:
The EP election debate, in as far as there will be one about EU matters, will be dominated by a debate to what extent the EU should influence our lives. Eurosceptics will bemoan the ‘Brussels Bureaucrats’ taking away national power, and the governments in power won’t contradict this to say that it was their permanent representations that gave the go ahead to everything anyway. In the meantime the mainstream parties will put forward safe candidates that are not going to do anything radical on the election campaign trail.
I am afraid Jon is right and will be right. Yawn!
