Aha, but "austerity now, but not just austerity" is a policy guaranteed to fail them.

Its hard to see how they make headway under that banner, unless they shift attention from the need for a non-currency issuing state to run a balanced budget on a capital basis (current spending plus debt service), and instead add ECB reformism to their structural reform slate.
