1/3) A note on the European elections #EuElection2019

The #EuropeanParliament does not have a government.

This means that the system does not operate like a national parliament.

To be a successful parliamentarian means having to work the committees.
2/3) Successful committee work rewards parliamentarians who can build consensus.

Those who are nuanced, enjoy the detail, read research, and engage in compromise are winners in this system.

Conflictual ideologues, flag wavers, and oppositional politics are not rewarded.
3/3) Therefore if you want your vote to have the most impact, vote for a parliamentarian who is best suited to doing committee work.

This might sound boring. But that's how the EU works.
