Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is entirely the case, and if you move from a two dimensional (aka lets plot party strength on a right left line)analysis to a three dimensional one (aka let's set up a nationalist/centralist axis and a left/right one) you may see things differently.  But, that's much harder to interpret.  And, I think that you still find that the center has emptied out. So same problem with a real inability to form a viable governing coalition. (And, even to get parties to abstain from voting to allow a minority government to be installed.)

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
