#1 The European Parliament is an interesting, if failing experiment, in creating a government that is nothing *but* bureaucracy. Its prerogative is the avoidance of conflict of any kind, at all cost. As such, all it can perform are acts that are stagnant at best, and decrepit at worst.

As a rudderless ship, it waits in neutral for any authoritarian to take control.

#2 thebiggest question is whether the anger and apathy will spill over to national elections.

Anger and apathy tend to be mutually exclusive, especially when voting is involved. Had the journalist written "anger or apathy," the statement would make a great deal more sense. But so few news organizations pay their journalists to produce sense as well as elegant prose.
