UPyD is a right-wing, nationalist party. That's nod bad *per se*, the bad
thing is that they are ultra-populist: they will tell whatever the people
wants to hear. And they lie a lot (they said they were left-wing,
non-nationalistic), they have contradictions in their own program, etc.
In some parts of Spain, they are accepted and voted. In Barcelona, well,
they got less than half the votes we got.

So please don't try to combine with them, or it'll be PIRATA.CAT who will
be ostracized and ridiculized :-p
