Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Reading the article over, I started to get nervous, seeing all the talk about "reforms"..but then I saw this:
The prime minister has separately reached an agreement with unions to moderate wage claims and end a policy of broad tax reductions and replace it with a reallocation of tax benefits to the less wealthy.

So maybe his economic reforms are reailistic and more social in nature? Sounds like it...
