Yesterday I had to rush out and couldn’t post this one. The biggest story of the day, hands down, was the kick off of the Gürtel case trial. This is the case that has changed Spain’s political landscape, fueled Podemos and Ciudadanos rise, created the deadlock and, as a longer time side effect, destroyed PSOE. The trial will only end in the Spring, so I’ll be posting updates from time to time.
I wrote an article on it for Deutsche Welle where I explain all that. It will possibly be published today, so I’ll be sure to update you all!
