Appease This


So, among the arguments I make here is that the momentum of public opinion had been steadily against the PP from the outset, to the extent that there's no need to appeal to the logic of "appeasment" to explain the purported upset in Spain, especially when a variety of other factors related to the bombing are taken to account. Via Radley Balko, I see that some 11th-hour polls conducted before the bombing had the PSOE pulling ahead of the PP.
