Any hope of Rajoy securing a coalition or even a minority government via abstention flew out the window today.
Rajoy had secured the backing of Ciudadanos on the premise Rajoy would clean up corruption.

Accusations have been ongoing ever since, and today things blew up in Spanish parliament in a very heated debate.
