For many years I have stayed away from Elche politics and its ins and outs. But writing from time to time about issues related to the city of Elche has to be a hygienic and tasteful exercise for me. I have read on the SER page that Carlos González has apologized for telling the people from Elche actively and passively that they were going to go to phase 1
It is always better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. However, without placing the blame on him, nothing further, if he makes me reflect on the lesson that I imagine he will have learned, and it is none other than realizing that betting on the leader (Sánchez) is not always betting on a winning horse Political leaders only work, the higher up they are, trying to make their interests prevail, not everyone’s, but theirs.
And they don’t mind leaving those who are expendable at the feet of the horses, that is, a mayor of the City Council, whoever he is, is expendable. The battle of the president of the Generalitat will be another, perhaps his leader will offer him more money in the “proportional” distribution to the communities or perhaps, who knows. But in the case of the mayor from Elche, he has no choice but to put up with it, and I imagine that he will feel betrayed by many. And it is that sometimes the data is not important and national politics and “vested interests” are always above small interests.
Perhaps the mayor, apart from apologizing, which honors him, and I must admit that I like it, should see the way and way to compensate the computable spending of the establishments that, paying attention to his words, prepared to start on Monday past.
Although it is true that the establishments were not very cautious, because they did not realize that even the tail is pig, that is to say that until the BOE does not publish it, the words, even if they are televised, are carried away by the wind.
Prudence in short for one and for others. And may the Mare de Deu distribute luck. Living immersed only in politics, however progressive it may be, should not make us forget that, depending on the position we occupy in the ladder, some are more expendable than others.
