I don't know figures for the last election in Spain.  Would you like
to post them?

Whether the United Left attracts "significant working class support"
depends on what you mean by "significant".  If I recall correctly, it
has received about 10% of the vote in some elections.  Or am I wrong?

It is true that most workers still vote PSOE in Spain and Labour in
Britain.

I agree that there is not socialism without freedom, but I don't think
that socialism will be achieved by PSOE or Labour...
