"Populist" does not necessarily mean Conservative either. Populism can be a mass warning to the bien pensant.

Exactly so, Whiters, 'populist' means 'popular' and as 'any fule in show business do know', it can be here today and gone tomorrow!

"Populism" is the political doctrine that supports the rights and powers of the common people against the privileged elite and is not equal to popularity. There are many things that are popular, such as indoor plumbing, that have nothing to do with populism. As an isolated thing populism is not bad, but it's often used as a tool to promote authoritarianism on both the left and right.

BTW, did you get the email I sent you on the proper lures and swim wear for carp fishing? The photos are "inspirational".

Oh yes indeed I did, Whiters, and I have been asking around where the nearest, er, carp fishery is to be found!
