Firstly, an alert. If you are attempting to read this on Saturday, May 27, please look away now. On no account must you be influenced by anything that might sway you one way or the other in your voting intentions - assuming that you a) have a vote and b) can be bothered to go and vote. Saturday is the Day of Reflection, when politicians must keep their mouths shut and therefore have to find some way of occupying their time. Expect, for example, the odd photographic glimpse of politicians taking a walk, cutting the grass, tucking into some typical Mallorcan cuisine - anything but politics. It is of course a bizarre anachronism, one wholly unsuited to a digital age (as print media are supposed to keep quiet as well), but such are elections in a Spanish style.
