"The popular perception is that the situation is getting worse. But also I think that the government measures were studied and this is not so bad."

9. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Miguel Blanco, Madrid resident:
"This government announces some measures but then they do other ones. Nothing is going to change. This is the result of banks which were poorly administered by incompetent people who don't pay for it. It is always the people who pay for that. This is the reality."

12. SOUNBITE (Spanish) Pedro Jimenez, Madrid resident:
"There are a lot of layabouts earning astronomical salaries, meanwhile the Spanish people's average salary is around 900 or 1,000 euros (1,100 - 1,200 US dollars). Earning 1,000 euros today is like winning the lottery. So we hear about the amount that the bank executives are earning - 1, 2 or 14 (m) million euros (1.2, 2.5, 17.5 (m) million US dollars) - and that is shameful."
People in the Spanish capital on Sunday were digesting the news that Spain is to accept a European bailout offer of up to 125 (b) billion US dollars to rescue its ailing banks.
European leaders hope the bailout package of up to 100 (b) billion euros (125 (b) billion US dollars) will help stabilise a financial crisis that threatens to break apart the 17-country eurozone.
Eurozone finance ministers said the money would be fed directly into a fund Spain set up to recapitalise its banks, but underscored that the Spanish government is ultimately responsible for the loan.
That plan allows Spain to avoid making the onerous commitments that Greece, Ireland and Portugal were forced to when they sought their rescues.
Madrid resident Miguel Blanco said he thought mismanagement of the banks was to blame.
"This is the result of banks which were poorly administered by incompetent people who don't pay for it. It is always the people who pay for that. This is the reality."
Fellow Madrid local Pedro Jimenez said he was angry the banks were receiving so much money, when bankers salaries were so high but average Spaniards were struggling.
The Spanish acceptance of aid for its banks is a big embarrassment for Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who insisted just 10 days ago that the banking sector would not need a bailout.
He was elected in November.
Spain's financial problems are not due to Greek-style government over-spending.
The country's banks got caught up in the collapse of a real estate bubble.
However, as Spain's leaders have struggled for a solution to their banking crisis, the country's borrowing costs have soared close to the level that forced the governments of Greece, Portugal and Ireland to seek rescues.
