Europe is heading to the polls in an election that could be a turning point for politics on the continent.
Radical right parties within the European Union are expected to win a much higher representation in the European parliament than in years gone by.
Far right parties are spread across Europe, and the latest polls indicate 12 out of 28 of them are expected to win seats. That would mean a 20% rise in representation since the previous European parliamentary elections, in 2009.
Laurence Stassen was a prominent voice in one of the most extreme of those parties, the Dutch Freedom Party. But after its leader, Geert Wilders, said he didn't want any more Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands, she quit.
She's now brought her campaign across the channel to the UK, where she is running as a representative for Southeast England.
