When a snowstorm paralyzes activity in the capital, it is a tradition that it provokes another political storm. The one that fell in Madrid in 2009 and the then Minister of Public Works with Zapatero, Magdalena Alvarez, it is remembered wrapped in a certain surrealism, since the closing of the Baraja’s airport It was produced by two inches of snow. Criticism from what was then the opposition and the media justified a very costly and grotesque trip to Siberia for the Andalusian minister and her entire cohort, in order to soak up how airports and snowfall work there. Little was learned from that trip, except his inability to continue leading the department.
The storm Filomena, the most beautiful and virulent that is remembered in Madrid, with forty centimeters of snow in the heart of the city, followed by frosts with historical minimums, has not caused, however, that the first criticisms are directed against the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, José Luis ÁbalosDespite the hundreds of cars that were trapped on state-run highways, the closure of the airport and the total abandonment of thousands of passengers. The criticisms have been taken by the citizens of Madrid. Criticism for flooding the networks with photos enjoying the snow in the center of the city, after a very hard and cruel year for Madrid. Complaints because television has devoted more space to images of people skiing on Gran Vía than to those of a snowy field of cows in the mountains of León, a picture that, moreover, usually appears every year on all the news. For once the time is truly news, they complain because it is in Madrid. On this occasion, the great snowfall has served as an unequivocal detector of intellectual limitations and morals.
The reasons for criticism have ranged from the non-existence of a snow plow in each of the 8,000 streets of the Madrid street to the invitation of the leaders of the PP to citizen collaboration to remove the snow from their own portals
This meteorological episode, whose icy forecasts have been surpassed by the avalanche of snow, wind and ice, has served as an excuse for the left to blame Almeida and Ayuso. The reasons for the criticism have ranged from the non-existence of a snow plow in each of the 8,000 streets that make up the Madrid street map to the invitation of the leaders of the PP to citizen collaboration to remove the snow from their own portals. “Nobody help!” Shouted the people. “That’s what we pay taxes for!” Who, Echenique? “This has happened because they have dismantled the public”. Was there in Madrid a hidden snow plow network in every street that has been eliminated?
“The public”. It is probably the key concept, and the biggest lie in which the identity sectarianism of the left still takes refuge. They do not refer to the resources of all positions in the service of the community. The public is exclusively what they decide, and usually for them. In this case, invoked with the kitsch and childishness typical of the dictator child, raised among cotton wool that demands and demands from everyone with anger and disdain, but ignores what those around him need. ¿Pablo Iglesias, Pedro Sánchez?
Waste of Health
The dismantling of the public as the cause of all evils in Madrid is a discourse far from reality and without any interest in the truth. It was already used at the beginning of the pandemic, after the Health budget had been increased in Madrid for several years and after eight hospitals have been built. The fact that humble and highly populated municipalities had a hospital, the case of Speaks, was cataloged at the time by the socialist Rafael Simancas placeholder image, as a waste of public money. So they have also considered al Hospital Isabel Zendal, destined for a pandemic in full pandemic.
If there has been a dismantling of the public, it has been, rather, in relation to the Army and the State Security Forces and Bodies. The only ones who have always been in the worst situations and the most difficult scenarios are those who deny salary equalization and suffer from a lack of material means.
The Arctic cold wave that devastates the entire country and that the nation’s own Government has described as “The worst meteorological crisis in 70 years” It has not prevented denying members of the Executive the request for assistance from Madrid, even before it is formalized. Jose Luis Martinez Almeida, who is somewhat the mayor of all Spaniards, suggested the foreseeable need to declare catastrophic zone before the damages suffered by the tsunami of snow and ice that has paralyzed the city. Like the reflex of a knee after being hit with a hand, Marlaska exclaimed: “No!” Later he declared that they would study it, just as he did Salvador Illa on conducting tests in pharmacies.
Filomena has occurred while it is in force a six-month state of alarm that delegated what cannot be delegated to the autonomous administrations. Now the Government intends to delegate natural catastrophes to local administrations, to which it sends only 20% of the units of the UME. Sánchez is only expected for the photo, Iglesias not even for that.
This declaration supposes a battery of aid and tax exemptions to some already impoverished citizens in a subsistence economy for those who have survived the still latent crisis of the covid
The declaration of an area affected by an emergency is applicable to those situations whose magnitude requires the intervention of the State to recover from the damage caused. This declaration represents a battery of aid and tax exemptions to some already impoverished citizens in a subsistence economy for those who have survived the still latent crisis of the covid.
The government’s resistance to approve it, very different from its obsession in declaring a state of alarm exclusive to Madrid in September, may not be based solely on its objective of power, of dominating a region and a city that it considers politically objective to beat, but in the absence of funds. A Government with unrealistic Budgets and whose only hope to defray its expansive ministerial anxieties are European funds that have not finished arrivingRemember the month of April. So, given the shortage of masks, the Government with the intention of hiding it, advised against their use “because they were counterproductive.”
The economic vice president, Nadia Calvin, has ignored everything in an embarrassing drift from the problem to private insurance. If, in the first place, you are reluctant to spend public money for what was genuinely raised, to help in an emergency that has destroyed the commons and caused damage that cannot always be assumed individually. If the available resources are not coordinated, ERTE is not paid, and the fundamental rights of all Spaniards in Catalonia and the Basque Country are not protectedOne wonders: have they already dismantled the state? The truly bleak outlook is that the Government of the nation is the true catastrophic zone.
