Rajoy cocks up

(And I’m not talking about the Catalonia independence issue).

Rajoy committed a rather spectacular blunder today when he voted against his own budget amendment. Even more surprisingly, he was the only MP to do so, meaning his “mistake” was rather obvious.

Everyone stared in amazement at the info board which shows how MP’s voted, with one little red dot where Rajoy sits (image on the left).

Spanish MP’s don’t bother with formalities when voting. They have three buttons in front of their chair – Yes, No, Abstain – and hit the button when asked. Since Monday they’ve voted on 300 different budget amendments, and it seems that mistakes are common.

I mean, come on. They have one job to do – press a stinking button. And they can’t even do that properly?

Great excitement when the error was spotted and the PSOE lot had to be warned by the Speaker for riotous behaviour. Rajoy doesn’t seem to have commented. It would be fun to imagine someone leaning over and pressing his button for him as a joke….
