So, it appears that five people have been arrested in connection with the Madrid bombings. Three Moroccans, two Indians. It also appears as though the Socialist party candidate has been elected into office.

As Glenn Reynolds put it - this short sighted and cowardly move on the part of the Spanish electorate could have awful repurcussions on western democracy. This sort of thing gives terrorists positive reinforcement for their actions - it shows them that they can in fact influence elections through actions of mass, catastrophic terror.

Boy, oh boy, is it going to be interesting here over the next few months. I wonder what is being hatched for us.
