Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same in France : a neolib government converted overnight to a strong public sector and a protective social system. A big shift in the Overton window.

But perhaps more significant in the medium term is the breaking of austerity : the admission that what is written in stone : 3% deficit and all that : can just be overridden like that, in the service of a greater imperative.

And with all due respect to the thousands dead and yet to die, there is a greater imperative confronting modern civilisation, and we all know it.

Financing a Green New Deal just got a whole lot easier.
