Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm struggling to see the parallels between Macron and 5 Stelle. He's not even populist -- Mélenchon and Le Pen have that angle covered -- he just managed to create a buzz, he's the startup, the consumer product of the year. Green, he is not (he will probably be less worse than his predecessors in starting to reverse French backwardness in green investment. No more than that). And an outsider, a rebel? Did you buy that? Admit you weren't paying attention... No, he has brilliantly succeeded in a leveraged buyout, from the inside.
