Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the presently non-two-party systems in Britain and Canada show that only strong local traditions can keep alive a third party, strong local traditions that mean majority in some districts.

Labour in Britain could only break the previous two-party system that ruled for two centuries only because there was a massive expansion of the circle of eligible voters (adding poor people and women).
