El País analysis (in English)

“If the worst-case scenario were to unfold, this would mean a new general election in Spain in early 2016. Such a situation would be unprecedented in Spanish democratic history”

Very fractured. Watched some commentary on it last night. Notionally the other 3 could keep the PP out but that would make the rainbow coalition look like single party government - they are that far apart ideologically.

Aye.

Headline in El País today "Welcome to Italy!".

I quite liked the rainbow coalition to be fair.

i'm pretty sure them leaving the EU would only be good for the EU.

It's a very UK-centric piece. Obviously it's a UK paper, but they barely stop short of "tally ho, the hun is on the rise wearing his new EU uniform chappies!"

Indeed, little nuance or appreciation for Spanish domestic politics, it's all seen through a very British lens...

i'm midway through this piece from the Graun, appears a bit better in that regard.
