Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
His approach was entirely destructive without offering an alternative project.

A lot of the phrases could be used to describe the Spanish right wing, PP and it really creates a public chronic-fatigue here, hopefully turning against them.  It would be a huge national embarrassment if much of it transcended borders.

One of their regular ploys, besides the abuse of media, is to appeal laws passed by Parliament in the Constitutional Court.  (Gay marriage, shorter divorce process...)  The law goes into effect, however, there is always that hanging case of inconstitutionality.

The supreme court was previously stacked in their favor, 5-4 IIRC, so there are constant battles with the government to recuse judges on major issues and to increase the number to 11.

Their behavior is shameful, maybe to force themselves onto the news twice a day, lest they be forgotten.

Great update, as always!
