To dog face. This has been the control session between the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez and the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado; between the vice presidents and their adversaries from the Popular Group and Vox; and between all opposition deputies and ministers. “All of Spain knows that you covered one crime with another, Kitchen with Gürtel. All of Spain knows it, even in Ávila, ”Sánchez replied to the leader of the PP when he asked him if he was going to unite his destiny to that of Pablo Iglesias if he was finally charged by the courts. In this Wednesday’s session, the labyrinth of parliamentary politics remains without exit. The PP does not show signs of agreeing to renew institutions such as the General Council of the Judiciary, as the Government has been claiming, and has responded to Sánchez’s reproaches for spying on the former PP treasurer Luis Bárcenas with funds reserved during the Government of Mariano Rajoy , recalling cases of PSOE corruption such as the Andalusian EREs or the judicial investigations against Podemos for irregular financing. There is one of the Gordian knots of the legislature: the blocking of the institutions. The other is that of the Budget, stranded with the Government in search of support but still without a single figure on the table.
“I would like to believe that you are going to show that the PP of Casado is not that of Rajoy or Aznar and will fulfill its obligation to renew the Judicial Power,” Sánchez has asked the leader of the PP. Each to his own, without being trapped by the other’s incriminations. Married has not uttered a single word about him Kitchen case, for which the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office has requested the imputation of two ministers of the former Government of Mariano Rajoy (PP), Jorge Fernández Díaz and María Dolores de Cospedal; neither of the paralysis of the constitutional organs without renewal, and less of Budgets.
The new PP spokesperson, Cuca Gamarra, has not been willing to let them accuse her of being soft with the Government, compared to her dismissed predecessor, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo. “Pedro Sánchez cited unity and the need to pitch in many times last week. You leaked a private conversation between Sánchez and Casado ―this newspaper published that the leader of the PP had sent him a WhatsApp message in which he agreed to renew the Judicial Power ―. Why do you show more loyalty to Bildu than to the PP? Gamarra asked the first vice president, Carmen Calvo.
There are no friends in politics and the “cordial” meeting that they both held on Monday is not an obstacle for Gamarra to have linked the vice president with the Andalusian EREs this Wednesday for having belonged to the governments of Manuel Chaves, convicted in the first instance for prevarication.
In full negotiation of the Budgets, the President of the Government has tried to attract the leader of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, thanking her for her effort to overcome the block policy. She has replied that she will collaborate, but not with carte blanche. “I will not lift a finger so that you and the PP are distributed to the advisers of the Judicial Power,” he has warned. It is willing to support the Kitchen investigation commission on the PP, but it has reproached the PSOE for obstructing the investigation commission against Podemos.
Betrayal and humanism
The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has “deeply” regretted the suicide of ETA Igor González. That condolences seemed to Congressman Ignacio Gil-Lázaro “vomiting, disgusting, typical of someone unscrupulous” and has meant “a betrayal of the victims.” The Interior Minister, Fernando Grande Marlaska, has not responded to this severe criticism with warm cloths or qualifications. “Nobody’s suicide is not good news and from humanism it is not possible to rejoice at the death of anybody”. Later, Marlaska entered politics: “You don’t know how to live without ETA.”
The dialectical exchange between the second vice president, Pablo Iglesias, and the group’s general secretary, Macarena Olona, has ended in a duel. He has not used this his second turn except to summon him. “See you at the next control session.” Iglesias has responded: “He has challenged me to a duel and as a knight I choose weapons: The word”
