Absolutely agree with you Ubeda (very rare I know đŸ˜‰ ) An internet fad initiated from the Arab spring (or nightmare đŸ™„ ) All the flotsam is there, anarchists, punks, ageing hippies. Normal spanish people are bemused or annoyed by it. The very same sort of people who were behind the student riots in the UK.

Corruption in Spain is endemic simply because they can get away with it. A lack of accountability that starts at the top. No-one cared much about it when things were booming.
