Victory!

Although I consider myself to the right-of-centre in the political spectrum, I simply could not tolerate Santana Lopes' and his conservative coalition partner's leadership of my country, Portugal. Yesterday's landslide victory of the Socialist party, which for the first time in the democratic history of the country obtained an absolute majority in the Assembly of the Republic, gives us all hope for change and indeed a better future.

Across the border, in Spain, the "Yes" landslide victory in the referendum over the EU Constitutional Treaty is also reason for much joy. We now hope for victories in every country where the treaty is being put to the ballot.

Vitória!
