Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If we argue about this you're going to whine again that you get "near-flamed".

That you are, in fact, as I have said before half in jest, a reactionary, now seems perfectly clear when you write

The socialist parties are an eufemism for communist parties that became "reformed" after the fall of stalinism or after the fall of the Berlin wall.

That is historically false and a right-wing slur.

As to Bayrou, let him build a party if he wants. That's fine by me. I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to his party - just let him really build a political movement that can stand on its own two feet, that's all. Which means, let him crawl out from under the right, where he has always lived and run his career, and to which he owes his political and electoral existence. Let him gather together enough political figures who believe they can get elected under his banner. For the moment, he's just talking and waving his arms about.
