So general election took place yesterday and thank god Socialists won after 11 years. Corrupted People Party got the biggest flop in their history!!!!! :clap:

Sadly far right extremists against immigration and ANTIFEMINISM (can you believe it?) particularly against the Catalonia situation have rise and now will be part of the chamber! Thank God they got half the seats that they expected. 

I find so sad that right extremists are rising so much across the EU! I thought that Spain, after the horrible dictatorship was vaccinated but no. 

People never learn from history, this is insane. 😕

OMG! Me and Cyril were talking that Spain and Portugal are so cool (as u know we are obsessed by the Iberian peninsula) that they will never fall victim to the homophobic alt right propaganda. Spanish seemed so cool with gays etc. Its so sad to see that they are not excluded from the mass EU madness. I m sure the percentage of the bugged populace is very low, but still I m sad.

so is it legal to vote for puigdemont???

I think so. It will be interesting to have him in Brussels. He'll finally understand that the EU is not supporting his ideas.

I jave a weird feeling about this elections now: the left could have won in madrid, and thanks to some politicians behaving as children, it hasn´t been possible.The PSOE and Más madrid have been the most voted political parties , but the right will govern  thanks also to the far right.

The conservative PP may take the government in my city, Zaragoza :shock: I'm pretty scared, tbqh. It's not the first time that they rule the city, but this time they seem so resentful and hateful and they would pact with the far-right extremists to do it! I pray for a pact between Socialists and Ciudadanos in both Aragon Governement and Zaragoza goverment or else we're fucked 😞

The only good thing about yesterday's elections is that at least we sent lots of socialists to the European Parliament.

Whats going on in my favourite Spain? Are there results yet?

First polls are at 21.00 (Spanish time) but contrary to the rest of the world our polls are always wrong, as if people lied on porpose :lmao: 

By 22.30 there'll be enough real results to know something. A friend of mine told me that where she voted LOTS were voting the far right extremists 😱😱😱😱😱 I hope it's just her place. 

Spain is much on turmoil and like so many countries it's as if we got stupid suddenly. Anything can happen. 

Btw, Jari has now a blog in Bulgarian about Spain. He just wrote about this elections and how we got to this situation. Maybe you find it interesting:

Horrible if the alt right has gains. Well, having in mind Catalunia, I am not shocked really. Hope the Socialists win though.

Jari's blog is interesting.

PSOE 120 (3 less than before, assholes)

PP 88 (a lot more than before

VOX 52 (crazy amount of votes)

Unidas Podemos 35 (this is so sad,they had a lot more before)

Ciudadanos 10 (this is so funny! the only good news)

Mas país (people that used to be in Unidas podemos.I like their leader, but I think this was a mistake, they should have gone together) 3

-----------

 

In the basque country, at least in the part that is officially basque country, everything is different, as usual:

 

PNV 7 (right winged party, who fought against franco, and that morally are quite close to the PSOE. they want a referendum, but not now, only when economically is good  for "us")

PSOE 4 (spanish socialist party)

BILDU 4 (left winged radical pro independence political party)

UNIDAS PODEMOS 4 (spanish left winged party, they are pro rerefendum, but they want to stay in spain)

 

so no, no, PP, no ciudadanos, no vox...but don´t count them out

It is an infinite sadness to see this constant rise of the far-right in a country that has experienced four decades of dictatorship having ended only 45 years ago. I did well to plan a trip to Spain next year because I'm afraid the future will be even darker for this beautiful country than it has been since the economic crisis of 2008.

everything is a shit, because there could have been a leftish government, and now everything sounds impossible. That said, the far right has always been in the spanish politics, there has been a part of the PP that has always been far right, talking about how all the problems started with the abortion, saying that the only problem with GAL( a group close to the police/government that killed close to 30 people) was that they didn´t kill enough people (that´s what the founder of the PP said back in the day), the have closed newspapers (and years later have said that there weren´t proofs to justify that closure)...but now they don´t have anybody in their own party to stop them.

the weirdest thing of all is that this political party has a few inmigrants in favour if them. I guess that, if you are a migrant, but with money, nobody has a problem with you

a last thing.this elections have been a disaster, but nobody is saying that pasoe has destroyed a political party that could be a rival (ciudadans), and has made the other left party smaller...in the long term I think is going to be better for them, once they get rid of Pedro sanchez.

The future will be alright. There's one thing the politics and another one real life. And this shouldn't affect your travelling :lmao:

I mean, Spain hosts 70 million tourists each year...

GOOD NEWS!!!!!

Socialists and Podemos (left) have finally reached a pact to form a coalition to conform a social and progressive government : 👏🏼 

They'll focus on social politics, better employment conditions, dialogue with Catalonia (I've always said that more money will shut them up because in the end is all they want, mark my words) and a firm block against the rise of extreme right. 

Finally a day to celebrate

I know but If a far-right party comes into power in a country, believe me that it will not be anymore on my travel itinerary. It is a matter of principle and value. Well, I do not think it will be for tomorrow in your country, but the rise of the party in the 3rd rank excludes nothing for the future.
