Nationalists lose majority in Basque

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Basque nationalists have won 37 out of 75 seats in the Spanish general election which leaves them one seat short of a majority.

The Basque Nationalist Party will have to form a coalition with Aralar, Eusko Alkartasuna and Ezker Batua and hope that the conservatives don’t jump into bed with the socialists if they are to form a government.  It’s certainly unlikely but as we know in England, when the unionists are faced with nationalists they can be thick as thieves.

The nationalists’ performance was hindered by the Spanish High Court banning two nationalist parties in the run-up to the election.
