Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Isn't this the exact same story as Spain and Portugal?

That's my assumption. Countries which are not self-conscious about their European credentials tend to make their own policy proposals rather than rolling over when Germany or France say so.

It's not homegrown authoritarianism I'm worried about, but the one being imposed from that very not-selfconscious European core.
