Could the European elections redefine British politics?

Here in the UK,  Brexit dominates the campaign that was never supposed to happen for Thursday’s European elections.

Six weeks of talks between Labour and the government to find a deal on the Withdrawal Agreement have ended without consummation.

With both sides blaming the other. The latest polling has the Tories in fourth, even fifth place and both big parties have been campaigning as if in a witness protection programme for an election about as welcome to them as root canal surgery.
