Today Portugal begins a new life, we now have a new government that promise complete transparancy and work to an absolute. A government that 'will not rest' until they see Portugal growing. Im all for this, this is the party I would have voted for if I could have. I just hope they can deliver on what they promise.
Portugal is a great country, very traditional, very proud, but it has lost its way big time. There was always quite a big social class difference although this has closed alot since the revolution in the 70's, but there is a huge difference on income bands, you are either driving a mercedes/ beemer or a 10+ year old car. You either earn between €475 (min wage) - €800 or well over €1000, most people (dont know official figures) around 70-80% earn the lesser wage, with 10-15% earning the latter and a minority in the middle, but the spread is so uneven. It is something that always annoys me. But hopefully now the future is looking better for portugal.
