Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fast dismissal and the lack of forceful PP response has made the right-wing in Spain lose track. The near future seems good for the left-wing government in Spain. Their clear left-wing (you can hardly find that any more in Europe) social policies are kicking asses and the center policies on the economy seem to keep the economy... for now...going
I sincerely hope you're right. If the PP does worse in the next general election (2007/8) than in 2004, I expect a split between the moderate and radical wings of the party. Ideally, there would be a larger Liberal/Christian Democrat party and a smaller Wingnut Spanish Nationalist party.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
