As doping in sport, the political corruption has always existed. Now, more scientific analysis, in one case, and most competent judges, in another, allow your manifest hatching. Corruption is not an exclusive fruit of this country: you ask it, if not, Chirac or Berlusconi or French MPs, which is auto-amnistiaron by the face twice, or the British parliamentarians, pringados up for the price of a hamburger. Our particularity, say so, is here always has been well seen to deceive Hacienda, copy in an exam, receive gifts from customers or plugging in to sons and brothers-in-law. Why, everyone knew real estate corruption, without that will do nothing to prevent it. Josep Borrell tried it already in the distant 1991, when he was made Minister of public works: finish with envelopes under hand policy, he said. Years later, up to two subordinate his, Huguet and Aguiar, ended up caught by corrupt. Sometimes, the fraudulent schemes are difficult to detect, with double accounting, financial engineering, tax havens and other panoply.
Others, however, are so obvious that Maragall could say anything from 3 per cent carrying CiU Commission. But all fell silent as dead. As more qualified, tax police have more experts and judges better prepared on financial issues, we see few municipalities free of sin, few Parties innocent as maidens and few businessmen who have not bribed in order to compete. At least, and that is the advantage of democracy, all these things almost always end up knowing, albeit only until the next time.
