This Monday, Iñaki Gabilondo drank the last coffee of the season with Àngels Barceló and has arrived “with two annoyances”. The first of them with what happened in Mallorca with the macro outbreak that already affects almost a thousand people in a dozen communities. “Spain does not get the point to send, or we go from repressive or permissive. I do not understand this,” he laments.


“Devoured by his own character”: Pedro Sánchez responds to Aznar, who questioned how the PSOE came to Moncloa in 2004.

On the other hand, Gabilondo has harshly criticized the former president of the Government, José María Aznar after his statements about the approach of ETA prisoners or the accusation of Rodríguez Zapatero of reaching the Government thanks to an attack. “The hypocrisy of the Popular Party in the fight against terrorism seems scandalous to me,” cries the journalist, who criticizes the sit-in of the party led by Pablo Casado in the tribute act in the Congress of the Deputies: “It seems to me a scandal.”

“I can’t help but remember so many years in front of these microphones attending the Aznar and Mayor Oreja processes to bring prisoners closer together. How can he play that disqualification game? They are making many people believe that they do not remember what has not been done before or that the approach of prisoners is freedom “, Gabilondo comments sharply, at the same time that he” understands “that Pablo Casado does not want to know anything about the past of the PP” because he does not want to remember this. ” “Although yes, when the economy goes better, it will say that the PP has done things very well in the past. These acts of hypocrisy seem regrettable to me,” Gabilondo settled.

Virginia Hernández, fighting for the survival of her people from the administration

Virginia Hernández is 31 years old and the last five years as mayor of her town, San Pelayo, in Valladolid for the platform Take the Word (a coalition of IU and Equo). It has 50 registered inhabitants, but about 40 will live every day. When you search the web for the town hall phone, you get a mobile, which is directly Virginia’s mobile. And so we found her.

With a degree in philology, she worked as a teacher, but, driven by the need to prevent her people from dying, she decided to run for mayor. However, despite ruling, he cannot live in his village.

Virginia denounces that access to housing is not easy in the countryside either, because, where it would be expected to be easier and cheaper, the reality is that the houses are in many cases in a state of demolition or are from families that ask for high amounts of money.

She does not charge for being mayor, it is for voluntarism. To help, they have a secretary once a week. Instead, for the rest of things, they have to improvise. The plan is to energize the town through culture: poetry or theater recitals, like the one that took place this past weekend.

In the town, with an average age of fifty years, live two children who until recently did not have a park in which to play. To go to school, they go to the nearest town Torrelobatón and also to Tordesillas, as the school closed in the 1970s. “I don’t aspire to reopen it. explains Virginia.

It is fifteen minutes from the main cities and defends that it is possible to live and work in the town. “In Madrid there are many people who live more than 15 minutes from their services,” he says.

Librological recommendation

The little life: the art of the escape, from José Ángel González Sainz, an “extraordinary view” of our current society. A book that Antonio Muñoz Molina has also recommended and that Iñaki Gabilondo has chosen for this last coffee.
