Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indeed. Portugal is the exception here, by the way. It is only the (hard) left that is calling for a restructure. Interestingly some members of the newly elected conservative party are openly talking that restructuring is unavoidable. They are typically told to shut up afterwards, but clearly they are aware of the situation.

But back to your (more important) point: The fact is that there is, in most countries, no decent parties arguing for restructuring should send shivers through everybody's spines. I think that there is a serious risk that an "ugly" party will get into power somewhere (though, like in .NL, they might already be there in some form).

This fascist narrative (I think the word is appropriate here) can be the source of much grief and sorrow in the near future...
