The Independent Culture
Sir: The apathy of the British electorate in the European election seems to me to correlate strongly with the degree of media coverage of the European scene. There is a constant rain of news from Westminster, whereas from Strasbourg there is barely a trickle. It is next to impossible to learn what is said in the European Parliament.

The Independent is to be congratulated on its European Parliament news, but the coverage has to be extended and integrated into the news pages on a continuous basis, before the electorate can be expected to respond as in a general election.
