Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Like here in Austria the socialists got 5% less and the conservatives 5% more than the last time we had the far-right in government. And the socialists went into the election with a leader already burned from having to defend the completely random positions the much maligned coalition government took, while the conservatives used their old party leaer as ablative armor.
Similarily, what was the big difference between the 2002 and 2017 election in France? 4% for Le Pen?

European centrists feel like they have been absolved of all sins.
