The title of my last post conveyed a sense of optimism regarding the Spanish political situation after the general election of April that obviously says very little about my ability to interpret the political situation of my own country. More than seven months after, here we are still without government, and with a new election held on the 10th of November that has multiplied by two the parliamentary strength of the far right party Vox. So whenever I want to self-flagellate I come here and read the title of my my last post and think how wrong and at the same time how right it looks. Anyway, a post will come at some point on the November elections. I wanted to wait until we had a government but perhaps this will be too long to wait.
