Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Plausible deniability.

It's not about whether their policies have been tried or not. It's about them being able to claim that their policies have not been tried. All they need is a sufficiently big fig leaf that their tame newsies can keep a straight face while they pretend to take their insanity as wisdom.

And if you pay your tame newsies enough, "sufficiently big" is very small indeed.

But hey, at least Siemens make trains that actually run. That's still better than what the Italians and Americans have to show for their lunatic far-right parties...
