    Could be, lools like they're prepared to elect a conservative PM. Not like he's an actual conservative but still a step in the right direction ala Merkel and Sarkozy.

    As Maggie T pointed out, 'Socialism is fine until you run out of other people's money to spend'.

    All it will take to change their minds is a terrorist bombing a train or something, which is what, drove them to the socialist government last time.

    There are structural problems. They must decide either centralist, more integrated Euro zone or less integrated one. Therefore, I think, politicians do not have many options in that current situation.

    Look at İtaly or Greece. A cabinet of technocrats takes office, not politicians.

    time will tell on how it will play out of course but its pretty standard to see the pendulum swing when things hit the fan.
