Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
With 80 dead, he may have actually succeeded in decimating the younger ranks of the Social Democratic Youth and this may have an impact in the leadership of the Social Democratic Youth in the next decade and the Labour party leadership further down the line.

You underestimate the depth and professionalism of the SocDem party organisation. The casualties so far reported are not in and of themselves crippling - the real effect will depend on which lesson the survivors learn: Whether it galvanises them into an uncompromising destroy-the-right-wing-and-take-no-prisoners stance or it makes them want to heal-the-national-wounds. The former would be useful, the latter would kill the party stone dead.

Too early to say which way they'll jump just yet.
