The first vice president of the Government and Minister of Finance, Mary Jesus Monterocharged against the leader of the opposition, Alberto Núñez Feijóo. “He says he could be president if he wants to. Yes, of course, and I could be tall and blonde,” he said in one of the forums of the political convention held by the PSOE this weekend in La Coruña.
Montero referred to the argument used by the PP to say that Feijóo would have been president if he bowed to the demands of Junts, the party of Carles Puigdemont. The socialists, however, assure that this is not the case because if it joins the Junts, Vox will vote against and Feijóo will not reach Moncloa in any way.
“From (José María) Aznar “We have not found a PP leader who has little decency to lie and lacks the ability to try to be close to reality,” said Montero. He also criticized the spokesperson of PP in Congress, Miguel Tellado.
Not wanting to say Tellado’s name, Montero called him “the one with the glasses” who came to Madrid from Galicia. As Feijóo also has glasses and is from Galicia and may lead to confusion, Montero clarified that he was referring to “the one with the least hair.” In other words, Tellado.
Tellado described as a “smokescreen” the investigations carried out by various media that show that the Government of Mariano Rajoy used State methods to persecute political opponents.
“He is talking about a smokescreen, despite the seriousness of the anti-democratic events that threaten the rule of law, as if it were all an invention of the PSOE,” said Montero.
For his part, Tellado himself responded to Montero’s words through the social network “Describe a PSOE deputy by her physical appearance? By her hairstyle, her clothing…”, he replied.
The vice president appeared at the forum with the PSOE candidate for the Galician elections on February 18, José Ramón Besteiro. The objective of the political conference in the city of La Coruña is, in part, to promote its candidate in his own land.
After the PP attacks, Montero continued to talk about the content of the forum he attended: modernization and reindustrialization. He said that the tax reduction formula “which the PP repeats like a rosary to those who pray in Ferraz” means that “it is not a national project.”
On the other hand, Montero emphasized that “there is no tax, there is no society and it is every man for himself, the law of the jungle.” Together with Besteiro, the two asked Feijóo to talk to his barons to address the financial reform of the region, something that was not included in Genoa.
The vice president also said this we must bet on the “predistribution” of industrial wealth. “The sustainable and modern industry of the country must be committed to the distribution of wealth before the time comes for profit or tax payment,” he assured.
An example of this, he said, is the increase in SMI and collective agreements so that the industry can attract talent and competitiveness. “This is what we are trying to do at Navantia,” Montero said.
