UNPOPULAR: Spanish are unsure who to vote for, or if to vote at all

TWENTY-EIGHT per cent of Spaniards told an official survey that they did not want to vote. 

Seventeen per cent said they did not know who to vote for.

Politics are now a sore subject and less than being at a low ebb, the popularity of politicians has sunk to fathomless depths. 

The governing PP party has had the Gurtel corruption case to contend with for years and now the Barcenas affair has reared its head. 

Instead of being able to make political capital out of this, the PSOE is no better, because in Andalucia it is mired in a redundancy fraud.

At least €50 million was diverted from the fund set up to finance redundancies and assist struggling firms, Guardia Civil investigators believe.

All these corruption cases are ongoing and none are new but they barely affect election results nationally, regionally or locally. 

Voters are apathetic, not loyal.

During the good times, “all politicians are the same,” it was said.   And during the bad times they have done nothing to disabuse them.
