Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sweeping generalisations about all Europeans aside, xenophobia (and racism) is in my estimation the main reason why the right is in power in most countries in Europe. The political left has not yet formulated an adequate response to the fear kicked up by the right and the underlying issue of immigration, work and cultural differences.

An adequate response in this context being adequate with regard to winning elections.
