My take is that parties are better when governing in coalitions. The first legislature of Aznar (PP) was less terrible than expected because their majority wasn't absolute.

IIRC that is still under the threshold for constitutional change with only their votes. It was bad this summer when the PSOE passed the 'austerity' amendment with PP complicity.
