Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yet it appears that both 5* and PD have recognized that the their other potential partner is better than the alternative of letting Salvini make significant electoral gains any time soon. Perhaps PD will move a bit towards 5* on anti-austerity, as relieving economic pressure on the bottom 80% would undercut Salvini, 5* can move towards PD on immigration, and they can compromise on making voter registration and voting easier. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
