No prizes for the Economist's coverage of the Madrid bombings, which I've been catching up on this morning. The paper's analysis -- normally razor sharp and right on the money -- was embarrassingly wide of the mark in last week's edition.

The Economist says "the ruling conservatives now seem even more likely to win" the election. Of the Socialists, it says their "chances of taking office next week, in Madrid, look even slimmer.

Er......wrong on both counts.

The article is subscription only so I've uploaded it here as a Word document and here in plain text.

The Economist makes amends, though, with this piece, which is spot on.
