There seems to be an interesting North-South divide within the left between Podemos and PSOE respectively.

This will end well I'm sure.

Hey, Portugal was a pleasant surprise. There is some hope (though I'll probably regret saying this).

Y'know I joked about PP being a criminal enterprise masquerading as a party? I'm starting to think that wasn't hyberbole, lol.

Meanwhile in Madrid, two puppeters have been arrested for making some deranged satire involving murder, rape and the ETA, after their show was accidentally marketed to kiddies

a cross between Lenin and a Rock Star.

That wouldn't be a too far-fetched way to describe Grillo (though with the number of purges he's conducted by now he's more of a Stalin than a Lenin).

Well congrats Podemos, you blew probably your only chance of having any meaningful impact.

Do we know where those results are coming from? If they're representative, this looks like a major failure for Podemos.

So basically, swing from Podemos to PSOE in the North and swing from PSOE to PP in the South?

Because their statute of autonomy requires them to 'preserve cultural heritage'. Seriously. Also Catalans smell.
The case was, of course, brought by the PPC.

Oh wow. What a load of crap.

So does Sanchez' comeback mean that the government's days are numbered?

Ugh, so as usual nationalist dick-waving is distracting people from the real issues (austerity, corruption, etc.)?

BREAKING

Spanish Congress supports a legislative decree approved by the government in August in order to exhume and move away the Franco's remains from the Valle de los Caídos memorial.

The vote went as follows: 172 in favour, 164 abstentions and 2 against. All PP and Cs deputies abstained, except two PP members who voted against alleging mistake.

On the legislative decree

https://elpais.com/elpais/2018/08/24/inenglish/1535097265_662248.html

Quote
Forty-three years after the death of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, the Socialist Party (PSOE) government of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has begun the complex process of exhuming his remains from the Valley of the Fallen memorial site.

Today, the Cabinet approved a legislative decree that will add a pair of articles to the Historical Memory Law to legally safeguard the exhumation. Once approved, the decree will be put to a historic vote in Congress.

Wonderful news.
