Now that the drought is spreading like a real plague and threatening everything, it is good to remember the role played in all of this by that man whom Spain must have found the “Historical Memory”, who is none other than the same one who ruined the country to extremes unknown until then, a simpleton who made many of his collaborators rich, who taking advantage of their supine ignorance took a slice.
Well then, gentlemen, during the unfinished summer, Spain has been consumed by ashes. Now, another big issue begins: the scarcity of water, including drinking water. In the second stage of the Aznar government (2000/2004), an attempt was made to prevent the water from the Ebro from ending up directly in the sea through a large transfer project in which Jordi Pujol’s government even agreed on what it affected him. Naturally, with the opposition of the ecologists, who found a pretext to justify their existence and incidentally plunder some funds from different places.
The fact is that Zapatero arrived instead of Rajoy -remember some bombs on some trains at the Atocha station?- and, naturally, he dropped his pants before the groups that shouted furiously and the water of the Ebro continued to be lost in the sea.
As Zapatero, the one with the mood, was an imaginative person, he found in the desalination plants –what they told him, come on- the Fierabrás balm to solve an ancient problem in Spain such as the lack of water, especially in some areas. 51 desalination plants were budgeted (more than 2,000 million euros of those at the time), which in practice barely represents 0.4% of drinking water when they stated that it was the great solution.
The Sánchez Government does not even know where to go. Those of the podemia boast of having knocked down I don’t know how many dams and swamps because, you know, that water is “Francoist”. I imagine to Mrs. Montero the coffee that she will give her when she cannot fill her Galapagar pool…
It’s time for them to get down to serious business. Because, in addition to being able to abort at the age of 16 without having to notify her parents, this girl takes for granted many things that per se are not.
