Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.

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%
