The Chinese rocket and the results of Madrid

Two months ago, the probability that the PP would think of returning to La Moncloa seemed less than the fall of the uncontrolled Chinese rocket this morning in inhabited terrestrial territory. This was predicted by Pablo Iglesias in one of his parliamentary speeches, but It is the leader of United We who is out of politics today. The possibilities of the PP to consolidate itself as a government alternative to Pedro Sánchez have varied substantially. But it would be as risky to certify an express political overturn as to decree a perimeter closure for the triumph of Isabel Díaz Ayuso in Madrid.The victories feel good, as confirmed by the PP's boost in self-esteem after last Tuesday's results....

For the first time, it seems that the campaign has been designed, as well as the entire process, from the list of candidates to the strategy of the messages, from Moncloa. That yes, blaming the poor results on the election night to the PSOE-M. Fortunately, José Manuel Franco has made a generous gesture of dignity and has resig...

Damn Madrilenians

Twenty years I went diving in the soul of Madrid. Two decades covering the information of a complex Community and different from any other in the national mosaic. From that long immersion I obtained certain insights whose validity, in some way, explains what happened at the polls on May 4. One, I understand that the core is that the absence of identity elements it constitutes in itself a powerful hallmark of the people of Madrid. The fact that a vast majority of the citizens of this region come from other communities or countries and find a Madrid open from day one without anyone asking where they come from or looking at them as strangers is a virtue that, in political terms, w...

The true journey of reflection begins

Now begins the true day of reflection for Madrid socialism. It is obvious that the result has been bad, no hot cloths. Bad in many ways, not only because of the scant trust granted, but also because of seeing how Trumpism triumphs in Madrid, a few months after its original brand fell in the United States.The elections have left a very complex political scenario for Madrid society. An appointment with the polls that was intended to eliminate his government partners. A goal that we can say that Ayuso has more than achieved. The situation in which Ciudadanos remains is tremendously difficult; they managed to continue to have representation in Catalonia, but they disappear in Madrid. The erra...

Díaz Ayuso, the Spanish version of Trump, swept the polls in Madrid

From MadridTwo months ago, Pablo Iglesias He was vice president of the Government and the undisputed reference in Spain of all the space to the left of the PSOE. Last night he announced his abandonment of politics. A series of gross strategy failures and erroneous readings of reality have led him to abandon the ship that he built from scratch just seven years ago, when together with other university professors he created Podemos to give political representation to the movement of the indignant-los young victims of the economic crisis that began in 2008- and that now leaves forming part of the government but in frank electoral decline. With his departure, there is no longer a member of the founding group in Podemos, after the majority were gradually leaving, purged by Iglesias himself and h...
