“BREXIT looks more likely than ever after the EU coup in Portugal” she blusters, going seriously wrong from the off. The EU has not intervened in any way in the Portuguese electoral process.

Moreover, any coalition between the PS, BE and Communists is going to be a very shaky one, especially given the latter group’s stated aims to leave not only the Euro, but also the EU - and, while they’re at it, NATO as well. On top of that, the BE (Bloco de Esquerda, in case you were wondering) is aligned with parties such as Syriza in Greece. These three parties have a history of not getting on with one another.
