It cannot be said that the appearances of the great leaders of the Popular Party in the courts have served to shed much light on the cases of corruption that this party has carried out. No one saw anything. Nobody signed anything. Nobody received anything. On the other hand, it cannot be denied that they are a good show. The statements of José María Aznar and Mariano Rajoy were more attractive than the evening television programming on Wednesday. It was like an extended political version of ‘Cachitos’, a small fragment of the recent past of Spanish politics – the corruption version of the PP – with familiar details like Aznar’s arrogance and Rajoy’s unintentionally funny phrases. We even had some moments in which Rajoy spoke with vehemence and one would even say that with some energy. It was not one of those interventions in which one imagines the former president with a cigar in one hand and the Marca in the other.
