As much as the opposition may press, there is only one way a coalition government can dramatically shorten its life expectancy: self-inflicted wounds. This is what happened in the negotiations of the bill on the rights of trans people. There are many issues that separate the PSOE and Unidos Podemos with differences that can be resolved. On economic policy issues, they will not coincide easily, but at least they can try to meet halfway, although one part is quite disappointed, usually Podemos. However, in everything that has to be valued with values and civil rights, if the discrepancy is complete, the temptation to think is very strong: what am I in this government for then?
