  1. Pablo Inglesias damaged himself already with tantrums and behavior like a teenager
    Hey I love teenagers but this man just ego-ed around and it was all about him…
    so now HE FINALES AND GIVES US RAJOY on a plate with no aceitunas.

    • It was actually the PSOE who handed power to Rajoy, by abstaining from a vote against him in October. Thus leaving a possibility of a later bid for their own power. Podemos, for all it’s promise, is strictly a minority movement, unlikely to shake the see-saw politics that dominate Spain. Same goes for Ciudadanos.
