Greetings from Austria, where a 90-second review of all these elections cut to an exciting case of a Mercedes driver who lost control and plowed into the window of a shop somewhere in Upper Austria (and where the polls are suggesting a frightening turn to the right among youth when they have their elections)

There are three big results for EU politics tonight. It is a truism of doubtful value that the German-French partnership is crucial to Europe. It is clear, though, that the German-French axis is crucial to the Eurozone. This means that the European Union might see a sharp policy change- something that came up in every conversation I had in Brussels this week.
