Matches and banks

We are anesthetized. We lend to Bankia 15,000 million public money without asking for explanations or responsibilities. Neither PP nor PSOE demand a commission of parliamentary investigation, at least to pretend that they are worried about the situation and not to reach any decision, that for that they serve these commissions. We are asleep. It has had to be UPyD who awakens us from this useless national lethargy that considers everything to be normal. Normal that the former mayor of Barcelona and former minister Narcís Serra, without having knowledge for it, presided for five years Caixa Catalunya with a salary of 200,000 a year without exclusive dedication and only one year after leaving the entity has to be intervened by the Bank of Spain. Normal that Rodrigo Rato present Bankia as the most solvent entity with a benefit of 305 million euros in 2011, backed by former ministers and former presidents of the government and months later needs to be intervened by the State. Rato charged in Bankia 2 million three hundred and forty thousand euros a year, and leaves without any responsibility for its management … until now.

the lists of Banks and Savings Banks in a difficult situation and among them was not Bankia. The damage to the citizen is enormous and nobody has paid for it. Before depositing our savings in a financial institution was the safest, now no citizen trusts them. But let’s go back to the origin of the problem, the inbreeding between social agents and financial entities. Not only Bankia fed the grateful stomachs of the PP, with Rodrigo Rato to the front. Among its CEOs we find the members of CCOO, Izquierda Unida, PSOE, the employer’s association (Arturo Fernández) and a long list that they only charged for attending their ordinary meetings. What was apparently a democratization of their decisions eventually became a kind of bribe. No one saw anything. Nobody noticed anything. Not even that they were the entity most exposed to brick. We still have to ask ourselves if UPyD had also been a Bankia adviser. Would it have filed a complaint for fraud? Toni Cantó told me this week that yes, and that they demonstrate to do another type of politics in the places where they govern. It is too early to make this statement, although we owe them the dignity of putting the bankers and the social agents who put their hands to pay looking the other way for the first time in this crisis. The worst thing is the position of the members of the government in this criminal accusation,

all in unison defend above all the presumption of innocence of the accused.

Moreover, some like the Minister Arias Cañete dare to criticize the judge who issued it in clear interference in the judicial decision. Would they have done it if it was a PSOE Box? How sad and decadent to talk like that, of politicians who cover up the shame between them, of banks and savings banks that lend money to the parties in exchange for favors … in short, social parasites to which we pay the salary without being earned, while We are evicted and extorted taxes. The latest CIS barometer says that Spaniards are less and less worried about unemployment, although it is still the main concern, and increasingly for politicians. Today one in four Spaniards believes that the main problem of our country is they, when paradoxically they are the ones who must solve our problems. We need a Pep Guardiola, a Vicente del Bosque to take us out of this. Do you think there are any among the political class?
