This is one of the most hopeful things I've read for a while, not so much the article itself as the comments. Hutton acknowledges that "what is unifying all Europe's populist right is outright hostility to Muslims". His prescribed solution, however, is more of the usual leftist tosh.

...the European left has to find a more certain voice. It must argue passionately for a good capitalism that will drive growth, employment and living standards by a redoubled commitment to innovation and investment. It must spearhead the case for new international rules of governance that can make citizens believe that globalisation is not a terrifying threat...


Read the comments, though. Marvel at the level of hostility our Mohammedan friends have now provoked, even among Guardianistas. Only a few years ago, most of the comments there would have been deleted on Comment Macht Frei. Now the anger is so widespread that the censors can't hold back the flood.
