Since the last financial crash, the EU has been struggling to find its path forward. With the coming economic coronavirus fallout, it looked as if they had to do something urgent to keep the bloc together.

Will one trillion dollars do it?

For some it will, but there is always someone who has to ruin the party, and this time it wasn’t the British. Meet the ‘Frugal Four‘.

In this episode I look at how the historic deal came to be and how it might affect the politics in Spain. I also talk about the junior doctors strike and Fernando Simon going surfing?

What do you think of the recovery package?
