Political class cynical

The protests of tens of thousands of young Spaniards during the regional and local elections demonstrate how cynically politicians have treated the people until now, writes the blog portal criticatac: "It wasn't dissatisfaction with this or that party or anger at the austerity measures that got people out onto the street, but the wish for a different social model and an end to the two-party system. ... The parties have been sorely lacking a coherent, official discourse. As a result the Internet forums have become arenas for discussion and solidarity and a growing number of organisations are going along with the manifesto of the movement 'Real Democracy Now'. This trend shows that no one has taken any interest in the expressions of outrage. There is no concrete ideology behind the movement, only the desire on the part of thousands of people to change a situation that official discourse has been passing off as the only one possible. People have long been saying on the Web that the movement is a 'revolution of common sense' against a system that treats its citizens cynically."
