  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.

  2. The usual grab for total power, right or left it’s always the same. There are’nt many real revolutionaries, never have been, just those with the serf mentality posing – esta la vida.
