El Periódico de Catalunya - Spain | 13/06/2012

Spain increasingly resembles Greece

The opposition in Spain is demanding that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy explain the reasons behind the bank bailout. A spokesman for the prime minister announced on Tuesday that Rajoy would present an account of the situation in parliament in July. The prime minister doesn't seem to have grasped the gravity of the situation, the left-liberal daily El Periódico de Catalunya criticises: "Not until July will Rajoy appear before Congress to explain why he has applied for a bailout for the banks that are turning families left ruined by their mortgages out of their homes. This conduct is distancing us from Ireland and its civilised debate about the cutbacks and bringing us closer to the broken society that a failed state like Greece is having to bear. The [ruling] People's Party appears not to have an adequate understanding of what is happening here, of how the crisis is destroying the middle class, which will lead to a radicalisation of politics and society. The brash attitude towards Brussels, the bailout that no one is will to name as such, Rajoy's absence from Congress and the veto against an inquiry committee into the Bankia affair are pushing us closer and closer to Greece."
