The CDS party caves (Telegraph, 12:16, emphasis in original):
… the junior partner in Portugal’s coalition government has promised not to rock the boat when it votes on the budget at the end of the month
The CDS party told Reuters that it “will vote on the budget considering that Portugal cannot afford to have a political crisis which would make its economic and social situation more severe.”
So in Portugal, the crippling tax increases will go through.
The government is saved and the people are ruined.
