I can believe Inaki got the job in Qatar on merit a heck of a lot more than I believed that he got a €1.4m-per-year job with Telefonica in Washington D.C on merit. At least he has legitimate...

There were people protesting at the last court appearance of Inaki last year. I suppose the one saving grace, if you could call it that, for the SRF is that the Spanish have plenty of other...

Unfortunately, the old saying "where's there's smoke, there's fire" comes into play. Whatever the precise details, the whole thing is becoming more and more toxic by the day. The general 'stench',...

I didn't suggest that the Spanish people were "longing for Felipe". I was suggesting what seemed, to me, to be the best option for trying to save the institution from the point of view of the...

I agree, grevinnan, and perhaps making a more permanent move overseas where they can start afresh is something they might choose to do when and if this scandal has been dealt with in the courts.

I don't disagree, Kleio. One point I would make, though, is those former royals you mention (correct me if I'm wrong) have almost never actually experienced the life of the child of a reigning...

I've thought about the conundrum of younger children of monarchs lately myself. The conclusion I've come to is, harsh as it may sound, monarchs or the first in line should only have a couple of...

We've seen this sort of thing in Ireland quite a lot since the property market crashed. Lots of developers took out loans in the name of their wives, or had their wives sign personal guarantees and...

Given what's happened to the Spanish property market, that 6 million euro house may only be worth a fraction of the price they paid for it.

If he's found guilty, surely he'll have to repay the...

Wow. So he's basically admitting his guilt? I can't see how you can admit to stealing almost 4 million euros from the public purse and not face jail time?

I can't help but feel that, rather than attempt to cover all this up, Juan Carlos should have openly and clearly addressed the Inaki issue as soon as it came up. It could have been dealt with using...

Pretty awful, and as I've said previously, the whole Telefonica part of this calls the King's judgement into question.

If I were a shareholder in Telefonica I'd be pretty annoyed. Inaki is...

I understand what you're saying, and on the temptation to let sleeping dogs continue to snooze. But, Juan Calos is not just any father in law - he's King. His first and ultimate duty is to the...
