Spanish elections.

According to a Guardian article published today, support for Spain’s ruling Popular Party is starting to ebb away and its lead over the opposition Socialists has fallen to 5-7 points. It will be very difficult for the Socialist Party to win the elections, not least because the government controls almost all the Spanish media – tv and radio stations and most newspapers – and they use this control to manipulate news items as much as possible. And while it is true that the polls do show that PP support seems to have reached its peak, and the socialists are gaining ground, it would be a surprise for everyone if the elections this month produce a change in the national Government in Spain.
