Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Elections are lost, not won.

If there's no one to the left of the party in power people vote for the next best thing, which is the party to the right.

This doesn't get them the result they want, but it takes most of them a couple of years to work this out.

And when there's no option to vote for what they do want on the ballot, it's not as if they have much of a choice anyway.
