IT would appear that the pockets of Spain’s bankers and politicians have hidden depths.

With more than 86 former Caja Madrid and Bankia directors under investigation – many of whom also held political roles – it beggars belief how these greedy bankers are incapable of keeping their hands out of the money-filled cookie jar.

With their wallets already favourably lined from ridiculously high salaries, the revelation that more than €15 million was claimed on tax-free expenses via so-called ‘magic cards’ should come as a shock…

But, after the corruption scandals of recent months, it is unsurprising to the point of being predictable.
