Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You coloured that map yourself with your own interpretation of what "right" means, correct? Nice try.

Hey, don't hate me just because I like crayons.

I did it on the quick.

The map above is problematic too, because it uses representation in the EU council which may be a different part of the executive (like a president) than the part that forms domestic policy (the PM).

The problem with Austria and Slovakia is that they have split coalition governments.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg

... the political systems are not so strongly biased to two party rule as in the US and UK ... and if you judge by deed rather than by rhetoric, the UK under New Labor is more a center-right government governing under centrist rhetoric, with occasional outbreaks of center-left rhetoric directed to convincing the left wing of the electorate that they are the LOTE.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
