From 2004 - 2014 Jose Manuel Barroso (former portuguese prime minister) served as President of the EU Commission .  

Barroso is a former communist , he was member of the communist party of the Portuguese Workers in the 1970s , It was under his reign as EU Commissioner that Austerity policies were introduced into member states of the European Union .  

It is this Austerity  that has led to a re-birth of communism all accross the European Union , In Ireland it manifests itself into the Anti Austerity Alliance( people before profit and the socialists) and the Communist Party of Ireland ,  all the other main stream parties have now adopted various aspects of communist ideology too .
