Much will remain in the pipeline, that goes ahead, of this peculiar summary of the year through the covers of the Huff that have left us more imprint than we have published in recent months.
It has been an intense year on all fronts, from the health front with the vaccination campaign, the successive waves and coronavirus variants, to the sports front – how far off the Olympic Games seem to be! – and, of course, the political one, both indoors and outdoors.
2021 began with that hopeful image of Araceli from Spain receiving the first vaccine from our country and a month later we were already in trouble as to whether there were first and second division vaccines, with some citizens who, due to their age or profession, could already be inoculated refusing to wear AstraZeneca’s. We put the ‘This yes, this no’ and Chimo Bayo did the rest.
We do not forget the assault on the United States Capitol on Three Kings Day and, already in February, the confirmation of a second regularization of money – nothing, 4.3 million euros – by the emeritus king, Juan Carlos I. His The lawyer stressed that he did so “without any prior requirement of any kind” …
The year has also given us a lot of anniversary and anniversary that have made us feel older. That Space Jam It is now a quarter of a century old and Britney Spears is already 40 years old! We are so musical that in March we dedicated this sound cover to the 25th anniversary of Aznar’s victory. We warn that we are not responsible if you cannot stop humming it.
We also got a bit cinephile after the statement by Luis Bárcenas in the trial for box B of the PP in which he pointed directly to Mariano Rajoy: he said that he charged bonuses, he knew box B and that he recorded it destroying the papers that he showed him with those annotations. “Mr. Rajoy turns in his chair and, in a shredder behind him, destroys those two documents,” he declared. And our imagination could not help but fly.
Although it may seem distant, on those dates restrictions were the order of the day. We still lived with curfews and many had to lead the procession inside when it was agreed – with Ayuso a la gresca – the perimeter closure of the autonomous communities at Easter.
Meanwhile, in the United States, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave Oprah Winfrey the very famous interview that continues to attract a lot today. In it, the Duchess of Sussex accused the British royal family of being racist and claimed when she was pregnant with her first child, a member of Buckingham came to show her concern about the skin color that Archie would have when he was born. Nothing new for royals.
Spring was also marked by the ‘Christ’ of the call for elections in the Community of Madrid.
The now director of the Spanish Office, Toni Cantó, signed for Ayuso a few days after leaving Ciudadanos. The popular one placed it on the list as its number five (the rhyme continues in the image), although the Justice ended up removing it for having registered in Madrid after the deadline.
During the pre-campaign, Pablo Iglesias, then a candidate for the Community for Podemos – what things have changed in 2021, eh? – acted as a fortune teller. “It is more than likely that when Ayuso is really investigated she will be charged and end up in prison,” he predicted.
“I believe that we can win those elections and govern. We went out to win and the atmosphere is very busy ”, he also predicted. The ball must have been a bit broken: on the night of 4-M, he left politics after his party was the last one with representation in the Assembly. He even ended up cutting his ponytail.
“In the end, the economy or health story was voted on,” reflected Marta Flich after Ayuso’s victory. “And the envy that the rest of Spain is going to have when they see us on a terrace enjoying themselves and the rest of the communities are closed tightly due to the incidence of the virus. If Extremadura, Murcians from the Canary Islands like freedom so much … having voted for Ayuso! Wait, don’t laugh, maybe in a couple of years you can ”. Time will tell if being a fortune teller is like Iglesias or not.
Political salseos have not been lacking anywhere, and if not that they tell the Peruvians. In the June elections, at 99% scrutinized, the left-wing candidate, Pedro Castillo, had an advantage of 70,000 votes and the right-wing candidate is considered the winner, while Keiko Fujimori, launched accusations of fraud on the electoral process, and asked that it be they will nullify approximately 200,000 votes from the places where their rival has swept.
Finally the electoral court proclaimed Castillo president and Fujimori admitted the result, but it was a good mess. And taking advantage of the fact that that word comes out, we remember a topic warm…
This year we have also highlighted some of the most entertaining topics, such as when we discovered what the work of the intimacy coordinators is like, in charge of choreographing sex on the set. And speaking of sex … what interesting and diverse documentaries 2021 has left!
In summer the protagonist was sport with the Tokyo Olympic Games, in which Spain won 17 medals, and the European Championship, in which Italy was proclaimed the winner.. Spain fell in the semifinals, but until then we had …
One of the controversies of the summer was VOX Toledo’s attempt to censor this poster for the Zahara concert planned in the city. “The only answer that I am going to give to what has happened I am going to give it on this stage, I am going to do it singing, I am going to do it defending art, I am going to do it defending music, defending freedom of expression”, was the artist’s reply, which was widely supported by her colleagues.
It was also good when it was learned that C. Tangana and Nathy Peluso had shot the video clip of Atheist in the Cathedral of Toledo. The dean justified it, the archbishop disapproved, the dean ended up resigning, and there was even a purification of the temple. Controversy aside, the song must be admitted that it was catchy … and it has come to inspire us a lot.
One of the biggest business news of the year has already come to an end. In December we learned that Marta Ortega, daughter of Amancio Ortega, will assume the presidency of Inditex on April 1 to replace Pablo Isla. zarina.
The year ended by entering the kitchen —where a glass is a glass and a plate is a plate— of the Kitchen operation. Rajoy himself was called to testify in the Congressional Commission on the espionage of Bárcenas, where he and Rufián starred in some stellar moments. Finally, the Commission concluded that the PP was behind and Rajoy was aware of it.
What is cooked between couples drama queen Portero and Cañil spoke to us about politicians who throw things away … and we loved to imagine this Christmas dinner.
And if something marks the end of this year, it is omicron, whose rapid spread has caused very high numbers of infections, the cancellation of many Christmas celebrations and the return of the mask on the street, in addition to some scares, such as Rafa’s positive Nadal just as soon as he had been with the emeritus king in Abu Dhabi – what was left in that, in shock.
We ended the year like this, just like how it started: speaking of Juan Carlos I. And everything indicates that he will be one of the protagonists of 2022 if he finally fulfills his desire to return to Spain. Maybe we have to start thinking about how we will tell it on our cover …
