Re: Juan Carlos, Corinna, and Swiss bank accounts (again)
The news surrounding King Juan Carlos and his scandals are pure hypocrisy. Everybody in Spain knew about him having lovers and his finances. Letís analyse the recent scandal. He received a commission from the Saudis. Well, he was asked to intervene when the high speed train deal was being negotiated. The CEOs of the main Spanish companies asked him to use his influence. It was unanimously accepted that Spain got the contract, in detriment of France, thanks to his intervention. The Government was with him in the delegation and, if there was a commission, the PM and the ministers did surely knew about it. I am sure that, if he received that money, it was with the PMís consent. The Government is responsible for the Kingís acts, according to the constitution.
Oh, Iím very much a realist, and not a Puritan at all.
And if there was one mistake that both JC and JP2 shared, itís that they were both too lenient and too forgiving with the Leftist forces in their respective country and church, IMO. The same forces that are now devouring both Spain and the Catholic Church.
