Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They've run their current narrative as far as it can go. They're boxed in on the sponsor side and the voter side. Pushing the narrative further to the right alienates the public, pushing it to the left alienates their sponsors (and they're indistinguishable from their sponsors). Switching to a new narrative will require the party to collapse in some fashion which hasn't yet happened.

Their sponsors are fine with sowing chaos stemming from increasing social inequality and defunding the government as it fits their goals, so there is still a long way to go.

you are the media you consume.
