The trouble started during a heated argument over something or other during the meeting. One of the PSOE (female) councillors butted in, causing Mayor Salvador (GICAR) to roar back at her “[all] be quiet and respectful when a man is talking”.
The Mayor has rebutted saying that he spoke in the plural (cállense) and was talking in general to all the opposition, not just the female councillor. He added that he meant “this man” rather than “any man in general”, ie, him.
“I meant for people to be quiet with the respect due to a Mayor when he is talking” clarified Mayor Salvador Hernandez.
