Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Conservative voters seem to be splitting between (older) pro-business establishment types, and quite radical (predominantly younger) far right nationalists more concerned with social, religious, racial and identity issues. Alienated from the establishment, or wishing to take the establishment's place, they see little reason to vote for establishment parties when they can vote for younger, more radical, insurgent parties.
Vox, like much of the new far right, could be described as an "angry white man" party. It is antifeminist and anarchocapitalist and pro-gun rights (an oddity in western Europe).

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
