Life-long conservative People’s Party voter Pilar Giménez has switched her allegiance to the far-Right after becoming disillusioned with the established parties.

She says: “Spain needs change right now and Vox is the only party which is going to make that happen.

“The PP does not do what it says it is going to do, there have been lots of corruption scandals, I have had enough.”
