There was a nice juxtaposition of headlines the other day in “El Pais” on-line. Translated, they read:
“Rajoy, perplexed by the markets’ lack of support”
Underneath is a photo of Rajoy pensively stoking his beard, with his sidekick Soraya Sáenz de Santamaria sitting beside him. She looks as if she’s biting her nails. Below the photo is the next headline:
“Two years of extreme austerity and a bleak outlook
Cut-backs haven’t succeeded in improving the situation: more unemployment, deprivation and thousands of businesses going to the wall.”
Says it all really.
