Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In which case the US, with its written constitution, is not a "normal" democracy either. Last night I heard a French "US expert" explain that, in the end, the whole American constitutional structure worked if the president was a decent person who respected the spirit of the institutions etc, which Trump evidently doesn't. The same can be said of the UK. Could also have been said of Germany before Hitler was elected.

The problem is not with constitutions, it's a matter of a shameless far-right takeover. It's purely political.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
