HAS Pablo Iglesias really pulled the wool over the eyes of a nation and carried off the greatest sleight of hand in history?
As the leader of Europe’s most famous anti-corruption party, allegations that the Podemos boss could himself be corrupt are alarming in the extreme.
If true, then it really is a damning blow for his party and a tragedy for a country that so desperately needs heroes – clean heroes – to tackle its biggest problem; corruption from the top down!
But let’s be frank. Podemos has faced many a smear tactic since its formation two years ago, so these latest allegations must be taken with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise.
