Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well I was thinking Hungary, Greece, it seems Italy,  and of course Germany. The current policy (minus perhaps the solipsism) is a continuation of the Hartz reforms. The internal devaluation in Germany started then, didn't it, under the leadership of the later-to-become Gazprom executive? That the SDP has now a chance to develop perhaps a backbone and stand up for the rights of the people who actually work for a living is a different issue, and has to do with the fact that in Germany there is now a significant threat from the left.

The creation of a serious left alternative, in fact a revived Social Democratic political presence, requires the destruction of most of the sold-out SD parties and building alternatives on their left.
