“Isabel does what she has to do.” The lapidary phrase was pronounced Jose Maria Aznar this Friday at the closing of the leadership courses of the Atlantic Institute that he presides, an act in which the guest was Isabel Diaz Ayuso, covered with praise for the former Prime Minister, who also launched a veiled criticism of other territorial barons of the Popular Party.
Going back to his time as president of the Junta de Castilla y León, in the eighties, before arriving in La Moncloa, Aznar stated that “what cannot be asked of a president of an autonomous community -relevant, important- is that be silent … do not give your opinion on national political issues. But why not? If you have to. What is unfortunate, because it denotes a very low political level, are all those out there who do not they say one word higher than another … no, no, you have to say it “he sentenced.
Some words that will undoubtedly reach the ears of leaders such as the Galician president, Alberto Núñez Feijóo or that of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Manuel Moreno.
For the rest, Aznar fully supported Ayuso’s and Pablo Casado on the pardons to the leaders of the procés.
“I believe that Pablo Casado the other day in Barcelona was perfectly in his place, he did what he had to do,” he stated, without forgetting to issue a warning to the businessmen and bishops who have shown themselves in favor of the grace measure granted by Pedro Sanchez.
“What has happened there and has been said there, in the Economy Circle, by some businessmen, and what has been done later with the pardons and what the Tarragona Episcopal Conference, called Tarragona, and all those have said things … are days to aim, and to have in the fattening, and not to forget “he asserted.
