"things fall apart; the centre cannot hold"

Over at Drudge, the EU Parliament election results are being conveyed via the following metaphor, straight out of WB Yeats:

Big wins for the Brexit Party, Marine Le Pen's National Rally, and the Greens from Germany.

Article: Brexit is now the largest single party in the EU Parliament.

Article: Centrist bloc to lose majority in EU vote as Greens and euroskeptics gain

The people have spoken. Will they again be ignored? I hear the EU is already gearing up to investigate Nigel Farage for fraud. This certainly smells familiar to us Americans.
