There are certain things that seem doomed to not change in Spanish politics, and one of them is the attitude of the Popular Party.
This Tuesday, at the investiture session of Alberto Núñez Feijóo in the Congress of Deputies, after referring to the existence of Vox, Feijóo has once again repeated the statement that if the center-right were not "fractured" would have obtained 190 seats. An absurd statement that is based on the mistaken belief that all of us who voted for Vox would be voters of the Popular Party if Vox did not exist. And it is not like that. I spent years voting blank until Vox appeared and I would vote blank again if Vox disappeared and there were no other parties that defended their positions.
In a magnificent reply, Abascal asked Feijóo if the figure of 190 seats was given to him by "the pollsters who had told them that they were going to have an absolute majority". The president of Vox has taken advantage of his reply to remind him that Vox is not a split from the PP, and that Vox defends approaches that the PP has never defended. Abascal has also made an accurate reference to my homeland, Galicia, for which I am very grateful, when addressing the situation caused by the PP's linguistic policy in this community.
