There’s an interesting analysis of European politics by Ivan Krastev, Mark Leonard & Susi Dennison at the European Council on Foreign Relations. They divide European political opinion into four categories:
- “House of Stark” —those who believe in the present system
- “The Sparrows” (the Gilets Jaunes)
- “The Daeneryses”—the Pro-European Left Behind
- “The Free Folk”—nationalistic Euroskeptics
It might come as a surprise to you as it did to me that the single largest group is “The Sparrows” and the smallest the Euroskeptics. Read the whole thing.
