The Santiago train crash 3
The Spanish President, Sr Rajoy, has announced 5 days of mourning.
This had to be done, of course, and there's nothing cynical about it. But it will certainly remove the issue of his alleged corruption from the limelight and probably take the wind out of the sails of his Opposition critics. Will we now have next week's appearance of Rajoy in Parliament to answer the accusations or will it (conveniently) be postponed until the end of August? It's an ill wind . . .
Incidentally, I'm intrigued as to why Ferrol is called El Ferrol in the British media. Its official name since 1982 has been just Ferrol. Old maps?
