Spain’s Socialists say sorry

A new video shows grass roots members of Spain's Socialist Party (PSOE) apologising for the party's handling of the economy when in power under José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Those featured cite the Socialist government's austerity measures, such as cutting wages and freezing pensions, as among its many mistakes. "We favoured the interests of the few, those who were powerful, over the majority," says one of the party members. Decisions on social policy are also rued, such as failing to change the religious freedom law, or introduce a dignified death law. The legacy of Zapatero's handling of the economic crisis has severely hindered his party since it was voted out of power in November 2011 and the PSOE is still struggling to win back voters.
