The week began with the victory of Spain's Conservatives. It ends with good news from the other side of the world.

Our congratulations to John Key and the New Zealand National Party. Mr Key – the international conservative leader most like David Cameron – has been re-elected as his country's Prime Minister. His re-election is further proof that, in these tough times, voters are deciding they can't afford left-wing tax and spend parties.
