The Popular Party spokesperson in the Senate, Javier Maroto, has qualified this Wednesday the president of the government, Pedro Sanchez, from “useful fool” of the independence movement and has charged harshly against the socialist leader for “paying a political price” around the pardons, which he considers a “democratic shame“.
In an interview in RNE, collected by EP, Maroto has assured that the separatists “say one thing on Monday and another on Tuesday like good trileros” and has recalled that “they do not give up anything“and that” they will “return to retake the unilateral way when it is possible to them.
The ‘popular’ spokesperson has thus referred to the letter from the ERC leader, Oriol Junqueras, to insist that Spain continues “with the rattle” with which it has been “having breakfast for years”. All this, in his opinion, because Sánchez must “pay a price to be seated in Moncloa” after having “brought” the ETA prisoners together because of his “pact with” the leader of EH Bildu, Arnaldo Otegi.
“It seems to me that they are laughing at Sánchez, that I don’t give a damn, but They are laughing at the Spanish that I do care saying that they will do it again, “repeated Maroto, who stated that the independentists continue with” the same sound “to which they” change a stanza from time to time. “With the granting of pardons, he continued Maroto, Sánchez pays off a debt to continue at the helm of the Executive while committing a “shame” and a “democratic aberration.” And this is not breaking the concord, it is telling the truth to the Spanish, “he pointed out.
The barons “support the rally”
In this line, the PP spokesman in the Senate has regretted that Sánchez says that he seeks “concord” with the Catalans and only invites the independentists to the dialogue table between governments. “According to them, non-independence Catalans do not have a chairThat is how they are and that is how they will continue to be “, he added.
Asked about the demonstration in the Plaza de Colón against the granting of pardons to the leaders of the procés, Maroto wanted to make a distinction between “the photo of Sánchez” in which the PSOE, Podemos and “their partners Otegi and the independentistas “. “On the other side there are simply Spaniards summoned by a platform who come in a personal capacity because the PP has to be there when it is summoned to say that pardons are a democratic aberration“, has explained.
Thus, and after being questioned about the absence in it of several territorial barons of the PP, Maroto recalled that the presidents of Andalusia, Galicia and Castilla y León have “publicly explained that they support the concentration and where they will be.” As Maroto explained, the PP “considers democratically healthy” that those who go to the Madrid square do so peacefully to show Sánchez that the Spain “he wants to paint” is not the one that many feel “in their hearts.”
