Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is very similar to the swedish politics during most of the post-war era when the default option was a minority soc-dem government. As long as the communists left party could not agree with the parties to the right and there was some internal competition on the right to be counted the soc-dems could rule alone, safe in the knowledge that the left would extremely rarely vote them down on a crucial issue even if the right was united.
