Regular readers will have seen an occasional series on why Spain is in the mess it's in. We, in fact, have been reporting on corruption and other reasons since 2007 (on JimenaPulse back then). We've put some of the series more salient articles on the sidebar for easy access. You will notice that there are only three titled CORRUPTION, but that's mainly because the list would take up the entire sidebar. You can find them all if you write 'corruption' in the Search facility at the top of the sidebar. Custom-written articles such as these will soon be included on a new website requiring subscription. Watch this space.
