Interesting, thanks.

Thanks, I think I'll write a paper on the rise of post-nationalist parties, using FDF, Ciudadanos, D66. Any others like Ciudadanos in Europe?
Austrian NEOS.

Options:
- PP + PSOE; both corrupt, power-hungry parties that want to ensure the government's "job machine" will stay within the same hands
- PP + C's + some nationalist MPs (not all parties have to be in the govt, could be minority)
- PSOE + Podemos + C's (not all parties have to be in the govt, could be minority)
- New elections?

Would a potential left-wing coalition be more likely to accept an independent Scotland as EU member?

Starting to look like when all the dust settles the result will be almost identical to last winter except that PP gained 10 or so seats from Cs...Spain remains ungovernable

With PP and C's now having 169 virtual seats, what are the chances of such a coalition + some other MPs being formed?

talking of animal rights, the Catalan bullfighting ban has been overturned Sad
Ugh. On what basis?
It's a fundamental source of happiness to the Catalans.

(Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Could anybody tell me something about the relationship between C's and the far right? I read something about it and found it incredibly weird that any far right person would be attracted to them.

That doesn't work, presumably because it's Imgur. Perhaps you could save it in your gallery on your Atlas profile, that always works.

My Elteuvot result:

CeC-Podemos: 63%
CUP: 63%
ERC: 62%
JxCat: 55%
PSC: 55%
Cs: 51%
PP: 46%

Would probably have voted for CeC-Podemos.

In a way it was always strange that Spain didn't have a successful RRWP. I guess PP's image was long strong enough among really right-wing people for them to take PP's actual policies for granted, but the discrepancy has been there for a long time and in addition to the economic crisis (which seems to help the far-left much more than the far-right in general) and the Catalonian issue, Spain has experienced mass immigration too. VOX's clear breakthrough in leftist Andalusia, of all places, is really significant: from this point onwards they are a serious national contender as well. Spain really needs it. Great evening.

So the desecration of Franco's grave and taking in hundreds of African immigrants on boats will remain the only two achievements of this government?
