Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The question is why there is no left of PSOE party gaining votes.

But I don't see a lack of coherence in the "sit it out" party. That group is well organized, has access to media, and has a steady product throughout Western Europe and the USA.

Strangely enough, to use a OWS example, Michael Moore gets a lot of media coverage for claiming that the Obama administration has coordinated attacks on protesters and is a catastrophe, while activists of the Working Families Party do not ever get any air-time. It is almost as if the "left" of quietism is favored somehow by the corporate media over the left of coalition building.
