Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And one last comment. Behind Ciutadans there is a group of justice pro-Franco intelectuals belonging to the Law faculties in the catalan university. The main driving force behind Ciutadans is the hard-core right...wiht the hope that some day they can get votes from PSC. On the social-economy front it is not clear if they are center or left or right, nobody knows what they stand for beside trying to erode the left spanish speaker front in the future

WTF are Arcadi Espada and especially Albert Boadella doing in Ciutadans, then?

La Moqueta: Polònia vota... (1.11.06)La Moqueta: Poland votes... (1.11.06)

  • Ciutadans parece que obtiene una mayoría de sus votos en los graneros del PSC (primer cinturón, o cinturón rojo, del área metropolitana). L'Hospitalet, Cornellà, Santa Coloma. En todos, el retroceso del PSC está muy correlacionado con el voto a Ciutadans. Sus 3 diputados son de Barcelona.
  • PERO cuando miramos sólo Barcelona, Ciutadans obtiene más votos cuanto más rico es el distrito: en los barrios obreros, de 'inmigración', obtiene un 4%, mientras que en los de clase alta supera el 6%. Y de manera progresiva (voto ciutadans -> renta). En estos casos, el PP retrocede en favor de Ciutadans.

  • Ciutadans appears to obtain a majority of its votes in the granaries of the PSC (the first belt, or red belt, in the metropolitan area). L'Hospitalet, Cornellà, Santa Coloma. In all of them, the retreat of the PSC is veri correlated with the vote to Ciutadans. Its 3 representatives are from [the constituency of] Barcelona.
  • BUT when we look only to [the city of] Barcelona, Ciutadans obtains more votes the wealthier the district is: in the working class neighbourhoods, those of 'immigration', it obtains 4%, while in those of upper class it exceeds 6%. And progressively (vote to ciutadans -> income). In these cases, the PP retreats in favour of Ciutadans.
  • Don't ask me why people call Catalans Polacos [Poles], it's one of those Spanish things...
