SOCIALISM, OR AT LEAST A VERSION OF IT

Looks like an interesting form of socialism is still alive and well in Spain.

Normally, you'd expect to hear a story like this in a city or country that was dominated by conservatives. Property being seized by the government and virtually given to developers, who I assume then make millions and give chunks of it back to the politicians who made it all happen. At least that's the way the story usually plays out.

But here we have Spain, doing a version of the same thing, only they seem to be seizing single-family properties owned by "foreigners", handing them over to developers to beuild multi-family housing.

Hey, who said socialists can't also be capitalists?

This looks like a decent test case as to whether the EU is really a "U".
