    Ahoy Rajoy more So long mariona Spain tilts left

    Despite getting around a quarter of the seats PM Rajoy looks unlikey to be next PM

    Pedro Sanchez socialist runner up is more likley to get support of third place Podemos (radical new anti austerity ) bloc plus a handful of Catalan EN Comu DL and ERC the most anti Madridlist,

    In Pais Vasco Eaj-PNV,Bildu,and perhaps even the more centre/right citizens party Ciudadanos will side left, but will make demands



    The uncertainty plus high expectations from the half of young Spaniards without a pensionable job makes a second election sooner rather than later.

    Depending on the actual numbers the regional parties Canarias, Catalan Euzkadi and Gallego may demand more automony.

    Diario de Navarra has a good analysis if you read Spanish while El pais in English obviously has good coverage



    EL PAÍS in English



    If UK withdraws Spain the forth largest economy a basket case will be bad news for Dutch and German taxpayers the after Britain the only long term net contributors


    The popular party got less than one in 8 in Bizkaia, while in Gipukoa Eaj Pnv Bildu clean sweep bar Zumarraga which stayed socialist PSOE

    I found it encouraging that a number of the smaller parties gained a larger share of the votes than they had won previously. The left and right stranglehold seems to be weakening, which I believe is healthy for democracy anywhere.
