Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In a couple of months Amaiur beats PNV.. huge chances it is going to be the main force in basque politics for years to come ahead of PSOE, PNV and PP.

This is the first surprise of the night.. if it is confirmed.. but the gossip is very loud. They take it as a given.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude

Imagine the fun of having a PP government in Madrid and Amaiur in the Basque county!

Amaiur is the largest group right now in the results from PV.

I imagine that they will long for Ibarratxe.

And look at Catalunya and Andalucia.  Spain is becoming a normal post-modern european country where identity politics are the rule.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
