Life in Culebrón is personal view of Spain and Spanish life as seen by a Briton living in a small village in Alicante province.
The other tabs link to similar blogs when I have lived in other places. The TIM magazine is an English language magazine I write articles for.

For the record

With something like 92% of the vote counted it's clear that the PSOE, Socialists have won the Spanish General Election.

The Socialists have won more seats than last time but the Conservative PP has also gained a couple of seats over the number they won in 2004. The minority parties have had a bad night but because the Socialists didn't manage the 176 seats needed for outright majority, the small "nationalist" parties may still be able to get some of their own way.

Turnout was very similar to 2004 at just over 75%
