THE way the PP has wriggled out of the Barcenas fraud case scot-free is an escapist act to rival the great Harry Houdini.
Despite prosecutors confirming that the country’s ruling party used secret accounts to spend millions in undeclared money, the party has – somewhat unsurprisingly – been cleared of all tax crimes.
Instead former treasurers Luis Barcenas and Alvaro Lapuerta have been hung out to dry and must shoulder complete responsibility for the party’s misdoings.
Although the pair were no angels, they appear to have been sacrificed to save their party’s skin.
High-fives all round for Rajoy and his rabble of merry men.
