WITH unforeseen suddenness, a new political era has begun in Spain. Having ousted Mariano Rajoy, the long serving conservative prime minister, in a parliamentary censure by 180 votes to 169, this week Pedro S nchez, the Socialist leader, formed a new government. It will be weak, commanding an even smaller minority in Congress than its predecessor, but not necessarily brief: a general election may not come for at least a year.Mr S nchez, a 46 year old economist, has appointed a cabinet that mixes old faces from previous Socialist administrations with new figures, several from regional governments that his party runs. Its make up sends three messages. Some are designed to rebut the charge by Mr Rajoy s People s Party that the new prime minister is a hostage to the Catalan nationalists and Podemos, a populist leftist party, whose parliamentary votes helped to bring him to office.

Actually, Senator McCain, I prefer my nationalists "half baked." Because the alternative could be the whole loaf. If Sen. McCain's speech is aligned with the thinking of the GOP establishment, Republicans may need to take a look at their party and step back. Attacking nationalism and populism as illegitimate, insulting its advocates ("people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems") and calling them "unpatriotic?" This feeds right into the message of the Talk Right and Steve Bannon to disaffected voters: Establishment Republicans don't like you, don't understand you, and they don't want to.

At just 39 years, Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker, became the youngest French president in history. The ex finance minister, who broke off with the Socialist Party to form his own political movement just a year back, has succeeded in breaking France 's decades old two party dominance.

What story should a museum tell? That question can be more complicated than you might think --especially when a museum is tasked with confronting dark chapters in history. Now, reports Vanessa Gera for the Associated Press, that question has flared into a political conflict in Poland, where a soon to be #160;opened World War II museum faces criticism for the stark story it tells.The Museum of the Second World War #160;recently hosted a press day in Gdansk, Poland, to show off the project #160;nearly a decade in the making, which scheduled to open to the public in late February. The preview took place before a Polish court announced on Tuesday that the museum would be forced to merge with another museum and come under government control. Now, the World War II museum will be forcibly pushed into a combined cultural organization along with another museum devoted 1939 battle perceived by Polish nationalists as a brave stand against the Nazis before the country 's eventual surrender and occupation.

The European Union 's acceptance of Bosnia 's candidacy application is timed to push forward reforms and ward off questions of stability as nationalist rhetoric escalates, experts say.Balkans analyst Jasmin Mujanovic said there was a fundamental disconnect ” between Sunday 's proposed referendum in the mainly Serbian entity, Republika Srpska, which has triggered tense exchanges and hints at violence, and the congratulations issued to Bosnia this week over its new step forwards.The EU 's acceptance of Bosnia is an indication hellip; that the EU is very concerned about the threat of the referendum and generally deteriorating situation in the country, and they want to use this moment to weaken some of these nationalist forces ”, Mujanovic said.Bosnia 's membership application was submitted in February and a response was scheduled; however, its timing looks designed to ease the country closer to the EU and away from the politics of division, he believes.Bosnian leaders celebrated after the acceptance of the EU application on Tuesday. Prime Minister Denis Zvizdic termed it a historic moment for the European path and the European future of Bosnia Herzegovina ”.On Wednesday, the Chairman of the three member Presidency, Bakir Izetbegovic, accepted the congratulations of dignitaries including British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson in New York.However, analysts note that little progress has been made towards serious reforms in the country, while the controversial Bosnian Serb referendum looks set to go ahead despite having been banned by Bosnia 's Constitutional Court. The plebiscite seeks popular support to celebrate the entity 's public holiday on January 9, but diplomats and analysts are fear it is a prelude to a future referendum on RS secession.While international institutions such as the Office of the High Representative, OHR, which oversees peace implementation in the country, have condemned the vote, the Russian Ambassador to Bosnia, Petar Ivancov, defended it this week.Professor Florian Bieber, director of the Centre for Southeast European Studies at the University of Graz, said the acceptance of Bosnia 's membership application was about more than just the referendum.He told BIRN the move was part of the EU 's wider attempts to bolster the enlargement project, which has been challenged by growing negativity within Europe towards enlargement. Previously tough conditions had been softened in order to bring Bosnia closer and push for reforms in the country, he said.He added that comments such as those by the EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn who tweeted: No one can derail #EU process ” were aimed at marginalising nationalists like the President of Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, who has championed the referendum.Nationalist forces in Bosnia have been basically sabotaging whatever is necessary to join the EU or move closer. So this is a signal to say their obstructive behaviour is not yielding results, ” Professor Bieber said. Others in the field of EU integration echoed this view. Bosnia and Herzegovina has become a security issue, which was the greatest fear of all of us here in Bosnia, ” said Inela Hadzic, an analyst involved in integration organisations in Bosnia.In a written statement to BIRN, EU Delegation EUSR spokesperson Jamila Milovic Halilovic did not discuss the referendum but said Bosnia had made crucial progress ” over the past year towards meeting its 2015 ndash;2018 Reforms Agenda.The EU 's initial raft of required reforms was demanding, but had ultimately been satisfied, she said. It was a long list and, as a result, there were some delays, ” she wrote.
Far from looking backwards, Imperium, co written by Ragussis with former FBI undercover agent Michael German, and starring Daniel Radcliffe, couldn't be more topical. Rather than just a distant memory, far right ideologies are in fact spreading, not least via social media. On Twitter, the number of American white nationalists and self identified Nazi sympathisers (the UK has its own home grown equivalents) has multiplied more than 600 per cent since 2012, according to researchers at George Washington University. Meanwhile attitudes that were largely confined to fringe groups have gone mainstream."What's shocking to me," German told Ragussis, "is what people were talking about in dark garages and dirty basements in the '90s, they're now talking about on national television."
