It's hard not to see the parallells to the murder of Anna Lindh days before the referendum on whether to join the euro or not. In the end it seems to not really have affected the outcome of the election. I don't believe this will change much.

No, I'm not sure it'll change much either. Public opinion on Europe tends not to be based on news events - or facts, indeed - but on long-held beliefs.

I'm surprised that feeling is running so strong though (I left the UK when the referendum had just been announced, and people seemed completely disinterested in it. It's astonishing how much escalation there has been in the mean time)
