Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Regarding the content of the diary: great work!

I am surprised at this lack of 'proper' right-populist and far-right parties. From 15 years ago, I remember reading that CDS is doing a xenophobic campaign. Did they tone down in their years in government? Reading up on its history on Wikipedia now, I see CDS has centrist roots which influence its self-definition to this day, but had a shift to the right when the EPP temporarily dumped them for rejecting the Maastricht Treaty, but the current leader brought them back towards the centre. According to Wikipedia, their only rigid right-wing position is anti-abortionism. I also find that CDS boss Paulo Portas is a vile douche-bag, with a truly long list of scandals (I recall the paedophile charges, the Iraq WMD evidence claim and some of the arms deals, but there are a dozen more on Wikipedia).
