Gríñan, President of Andalucía, has promised 150 million euros to finish the Almanzora motorway, and said it is a “top priority” for the Junta.
Because we have muppets like him in charge, who can’t even be bothered to stay awake during the annual Debate of the Nation in Parliament (he’s the Minister for Public Works & Development). It’s not as if we’re not paying him to at least stay awake during working hours… (From El Digital Castilla La Mancha) Maybe he’ll claim it’s because he was working so hard. Or that he had his eyes closed to concentrate on Continue reading This is why Spain is sliding towards the pit….
