Is anyone following the situation in Spain just now? I'd honestly say that in my lifetime I've never seen (or perhaps paid attention to is more appropriate) an election in a developed country that has created so many complex variables regarding the formation of government - not to mention the potentially profound impacts that the elected government might have!

I'm actually pretty terrible. Properly anglocentric, plus French because of my uni courses, plus Spanish 'cause I lived there for a bit.

Still, I know roughly how the ground lies in Italy and I think what sets Spain apart is the ridiculous complexity of all the different secessionist movements...which you'd think would be more potent in Italy since the unification is not so long ago, in the grand scheme.

The biggest interest for me is whether the Traditional socialist party PSOE try to form a coalition with Podemos etc or go for a sucidal grand coalition with the People's Party.

Can't see a grand coalition. Surely it would've happened by now? I also can't really see Podemos backing down on a referendum so the ball is in PSOE's court really.

Crucial. I think this is why Podemos are entrenching themselves on the referendum; any congressional agreement on any kind of constitutional reform isn't going to mean much because the PP senate will just block the legislation, so Podemos don't have many cards to play really.
