The front page of Monday's newspaper "La Gaceta" promises new revelations about political scandals that are playing close to the popular government of Mariano Rajoy.

The fore mentioned entitled 'A Rajoy also paid travel, "about a picture of the back of the highest representative of the Spanish.

"His wife, his son and personal assistant flew business class to Las Palmas with money Gürtel", added the subtitle, attaching notes as evidence under seal 'exclusive'.

That should not be a surprise, but what choices do voters have?

Please consider this choppy translation from El Pais:
crisis and corruption lead to PP to lower expectations

At this time, there is a ruling party with almost hegemonic majority, allowing it to act with little parliamentary scrutiny and yet have an estimate of the single vote of 23.9%, the lowest of democracy, only one year after having swept the polls. In a month and has lost six points from more than 20 points overall, without stating whether touched and thoroughly. And in theory are almost three years to allow citizens to speak at the polls. Your vote expectancy is now almost three points below the result of the AP of Manuel Fraga , 1982, when the PSOE of Felipe González swept him with 202 deputies.
