Aye, totally, except- as questionable as the government's actions are, I don't think there's any indication they want to leave the EU (though I'm open to correction?). More so they seem to want to have it both ways, whilst engaging in score-settling to sooth their victim complex built up over 8 years out of power. Either way, it's very worrying. This is what you get though when you turn a blind eye to the likes of Viktor Orban. Someone else is bound to come along and follow such and example and try to similarly push their luck.

Spaniards at the polls today (well, those who didn't use the postal vote).

One HELL of a confusing voting system.

Well dodgy. The last time Law and Justice were in power, the government collapsed. Ideally more of the same this time, please.

Hardly a chance the PP will be kept out.

Even in a coalition, it's hard to see how they can form a majority.

86% of votes counted, seats:

PP 121
PSOE 93
Podemos 69
Ciudadanos 39

176 needed for a majority.

Hard to see how anybody can form a stable government, looking at the other smaller and regional parties who've got seats.

Podemos the big winner in Catalonia, having bombed in the Catalan regional elections in September which was a de facto vote in independence (which podemos aren't for, although they're for a referendum on the matter).

Anyway, clear as mud tonight!
