Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You might consider that the technocrats have been exposed to a massive mis-education in political economics and also that most might have a long standing bias towards the more conservative and, especially, the more wealthy elements of the societies in which they serve. Socialist governments and parties in Europe have been on the defensive for so long that there is now very little left to defend, at least in the domain of popular conceptions of the society and economy. Unless there is effective push back this will remain the case.
