A paragraph from from Cantueso’s Shoptalk blog amused me. In the interests of political objectivity, I’ll point out that he starts the post by stating “En mi pueblo el alcalde es del PP”, whereas in my pueblo, the mayor is from the PSOE. It really doesn’t matter either way:
Como el alcalde tiene mucho trabajo, lo comparte con sus suegros, primos, primas, sobrinos, yernos, nueras, y con los familiares y amigos de éstos. Por eso el ayuntamiento es como una gran familia donde todos se quieren […]
which roughly translates as:
The mayor is a very busy man, so he shares the work with his in-laws, his cousins, his nephews and nieces, and all their friends and relations. This means the local council is one big happy family where everybody loves each other […]
How could anyone want to change such a system?
