Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
between what is done by EU institutions without political legitimacy what is done by EU institutions with political legitimacy and right wing leadership.

It may look the same, but in one case, they do the "common wisdom" of the Serious People (ie, TINA) whereas in the other case they do rightwing policies which can be fought off as such, and reversed once you get a left wing leadership.

If people vote for rightwing governments, they can't complain about rightwing policies. If they vote for leftwing governments and get rightwing policies or TINA, then they have a right to be pissed.

EU institutions with clear political legitimacy/responsibility would be a massive progress.
