The general election in Spain in late April passed off with quite a decent result in the end. The right wing, including the new National Socialists fought over the same votes and the non-socialist socialists walked through the big gap in the middle. Sanchez seems to know what he’s doing and is at least talking to people who the answer isn’t ‘No’ to, a bit like John Major did with Sinn Fein in the early to mid 1990’s.
Quite a contrast to the pantomime horse performance being put on by what remains of the Tory party in Britain where idiocy seems to be the only qualification needed by most of their M.Ps. Still there is an increasing chance the laughable government will fall, Article 50 will be revoked, a second referendum held that on a high turnout will vote 60% to stay in the EU and the whole episode can be forgotten, apart from the UK being in the Schengen freedom of movement area, Proportional Representation coming in as the UK voting system and the insane right wing losing power potentially for ever. Here’s hoping.
