a soccer recreation
These of us who lived intently the delivery of the Structure observed extra the distinction of that historic second with this one. Then the need to construct dominated and in the present day, the need to destroy. Dialogue and consensus have been changed by discord and confrontation. The enemies of the “regime of 78” have climbed into the federal government of the nation. The political local weather, which was as soon as welcoming and thrilling, has turned harsh and harmful. The luminous constructing of the Structure threatens damage, induced from inside.
Right this moment I’m going to breed a major anecdote that I accumulate in my guide «Secrets and techniques of the Transition». It offers some concept of what goes from yesterday to in the present day. It additionally has to do with soccer, so dominant lately. It was late June. The Constitutional Fee had completed its work. And to have a good time it, journalists and constituent politicians determined to play a soccer recreation, which demonstrated the concord between them. Felipe González with a purple jersey defended the aim of the politicians within the first half. Marcos Vizcaya, from the Basque youth academy, and Chus Viana, Pujalte and Meilán Gil confirmed some skill with the ball; The socialists Fuejo and Chiqui Benegas weren’t left behind. Nor was the then communist Ramón Tamames misplaced. The Catalan Roca failed on the final second, and Fraga, who couldn’t take part as a result of a earlier dedication, warned: “For the report, I’m a really powerful participant on the pitch.” No one questioned it.
The journalists received 4-3. “I categorically deny – clarified the referee Peces Barba – that the end result was agreed final night time at a dinner.” (As Márquez Reviriego identified, “the Constitutions are stuffed with nice dinners”. The one in all 78 was made largely on the tablecloths). There was no scarcity of those that dismissed the initiative as frivolous, however on the fellowship lunch that adopted the assembly, it was commented, as Carandell, the one from “Celtiberia present”, in his parliamentary chronicle, commented that “the Spaniards of the era of the Constituent Meeting in 1931 would have been fortunate to have been capable of witness a match between the Press and a group made up of, for instance, Miguel Maura, Largo Caballero, Gil-Robles, Azaña, Companys, Indalecio Prieto, Besteiro…»
Right this moment a group made up of Pedro Sánchez, Abascal, Otegui, Feijóo, Puigdemont, Pablo Iglesias can be much more stunning… The Press group, higher not attempt. The best way issues are, there can be too many accidents on the pitch. Not to mention stage a ladies’s soccer match with Isabel Díaz Ayuso and Irene Montero as captains of their respective groups. Something might occur. As if that weren’t sufficient, some query the referee.
