You're right vivafuerte, Rajoy is a conservative with the PP party.
The new prime minister is from PSOE which is the socialist party.

I suppose you use your own benchmark in deciding if someone is to the left or right.  :D

What will be interesting is how long he lasts...At 84 seats out of 350 his chances of doing anything at all are limited. He has profound disagreements with many in his own party and isn`t exactly popular. The leftist vote now goes to Podemos with the liberal pro business Cuididanos also taking some of their traditional support. This guy lost the 2015 and 2016 elections to Rajoy with a reduction in seats and votes.

   The `Markets` will be taking a long hard look at everything from tomorrow and because you don`t have a government that can implement anything it causes uncertainty. Rajoy could have resigned and handed over to another within his own party, yet he chose to battle it out, in the full and certain knowledge of the outcome..Hmm politics, although fascinating, is also a very dirty game.

I can't understand how the Tories are doing so well in the polls. May is in a better place than she was after the election, which I find hard to believe considering her weakness and some of the brexit proposals she appears to endorse one minute then reject the next. She has no plan or direction and never has, especially for a no deal scenario.

We are a busted flush regarding brexit with her in charge and we now, especially at this time need a dynamic and positive thinking replacement. Trouble is there isn't one unless you trawl the lower ranks which include Rees Mogg or Priti Patel and I wonder if they have the experience needed. I'd certainly give one of them a try...they can only be better than what we already have.

You can't understand   :o :o  Well who in their right mind would vote for the alternative, Corbyn, the idiot who would rather see the UK as more like Venezuela, completely broke, inflation 14,000%, no medication in the hospitals, kids dying of malnutricion, the Elite living like Kings.

I think Corbyn is a social experiment to find out exactly how stupid we are.

Cobinyn may be a reason but not the only one . My opinion is the total meltdown of UKIP has a lot more to do with it. They had a big share of the vote pre referendum and the Tories are now the only ones able to deliver on brexit which was all UKIP were there for. May would be toast if not for that.
