from the diary just above:

Be aware, though, that the left is basically in the streets shouting "do not vote PPSOE".

Oh, I did not read that as a call to boycott - I read it as a call to vote to the left of PSOE. But I guess it could be constructed that way.

Let me point out that the call is to vote for something else, more left-wing or more right-wing. Your pick.

Standing behind me in the line at the polls was a young couple. He kept going on about how representative democracy was a useless exercise, and so on. The basic 15M-movement they call it democracy but it's not and they do not represent us line. He voted. I doubt he voted PSOE, and I doubt he voted to the right of PSOE.

I also voted. I also voted to the left of PSOE. I also ranted about voting once a year and sitting at home for the following 4 years.
