Right wing parties in Spain surge ahead of vote — Expect A Shock Result In Elections

I reported elsewhere earlier this month that Spanish Prime MinisterPedro Sanchez had called a general election which will take place on 28 April, after his minority government saw its socialist budget voted down.

The election, which will be Spain’s third in under four years, is a further sign of an increasingly fragmented political scene in one of the EU’s larger states, with the strength of Catalonia‘s independence movement, and the revival of the Basque separatist movement having been given impetus by Calalonia’s progress having dominated recent debate.

Mr Sanchez was already under pressure from within his own Socialist party ranks to cut short his term as his government, with only 85 seats in the 350 member Cortes, the Spanish National Assembly, lost his weak parliamentary support this week after Catalan separatists joined opposition politicians to vote down his government’s 2019 national spending plans.

Recent opinion polls suggest no single can win enough votes to rule on its own, which is what we expect in Spain..

Immediately after the coalition’s soft coup last summer, Spain’s immigration policy changed dramatically with Sanchez declaring ‘open doors’ to all comers. Consequently, as has happened across The West when immigration policies unravel and large numbers of unskilled, uneducated, semi literate third world peasants and labourers start to flood into civilised nations, chaos inevitably ensues and voters turn to the more socially conservative parties for solutions.

This has happened on a consistent basis since Brexit and Trump won the day in 2016 — in Hungary, Czech, Austria, Italy and it is now happening in Spain, too. Even in Sweden and Germany, the once dominant (globalist) Social Democrats have lost their hegemony, while in France the populist yellow vest protest movement, three months after it started, is spawning paramilitary groups in response the President Macron’s refusal to listen to his people and heavy handed use of The Gendarmerie to suppress protests.

The latest polls in Spain suggest that a centre-right and nationalist groups will easily regain key regions and large cities, such as Madrid and Valencia, which have been held by left or socialist authorities for four years.

The centre-right PP party would, together with the centrist Ciudadanos Party and the right wing VOX party, win those regions as they did last December in Andalusia, Spain’s most socialist province, giving them enough strength to form a government. Local, regional and European elections are scheduled for the 26th of May, 2019 too. Almost certainly, the leftist-separatist coalition will lose heavily there too indeed Spanish pundits claim the left could face a total wipe out in elections to the European Parliament.

Stories such as that of an 18 year old Spanish girl in Sabadell, Catalonia, who was raped by six Moroccan immigrants are now only too common in Spain, as are reports of sex crimes perpetrated by immigrants in Germany, Sweden, France, The netherlands, Britain, Belgium and Italy. This kind of news story, which is easily authenticated, is toxic to those political groups who campaign for open borders and talk of the cultural enrichment immigration brings. Nobody wants their daughter, wife, sister or friends ‘culturally enriched’ by men who see nothing wrong in raping a European woman.

This swing to the right seen all over the European Union is a reaction to the lax border controls and welfare-for-all policies pushed on member states by the EU and enthusiastically embraced by the left and globalist centre parties. Spaniards have now started worrying about their security and where their taxed income goes. Far-right lawmakers are set to be elected to Spain’s parliament for the first time in nearly four decades.

The far-right party Vox would win up to 46 seats out of 350, according to a GESOP poll published by the El Periodico newspaper, while the GAD3 polling firm for the La Vanguardia newspaper forecast 16 seats. Vox is a newcomer on the Spanish political scene, and pollsters had underestimated its score in a regional election in Andalusia in December, where the anti-immigration party won 12 seats. Memories of the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, who died in 1975, meant Spain had long been been immune to the growing popularity of far-right parties in much of Europe, but these worries have faded as Spain faces new threats to its social stability.

The self righteous excesses of the left, whenever they gain power in a democracy, inevitably provoke a swing to the right in subsequent elections.
