the televised mockery of an official slogan

Monday at the Palacio de la Zarzuela (family meeting, without images, outside the official agenda) will not be like the weekend in Sanxenxo. The images of the swarm of cameras and reporters attracted by the so-called King Emeritus to this beautiful corner of the Galician coast have been the televised mockery of an official slogan: that Don Juan Carlos’s private trip be as discreet as possible.

The word ’embarrassment’, used by the former vice president, Carmen Calvo, frees us from resorting to historical analogies that could go back to the obscurantist Spain of vivan las ‘caenas’ or the Esquilache riot. But let no one be fooled. Those who, out of prudence and common sense, do not take the trouble to travel to Galicia to give the emeritus the rod, for being corrupt, they are the majority against those who cheer him on without noticing the damage he has done to Spain, the Crown and his own son.

The trip serves so that ‘cebrians and echeniques’ believe that they are more to the left than anyone else for opening debates that stink of mothballs

For now, the trip has served to make ‘cebrians, garzones and echeniques’ get great believing themselves to be more leftist than anyone for reviling the monarchyannounce the advent of the Third Republic and open absurd debates that stink of mothballs. Of course, with the invaluable collaboration of Don Juan Carlos, who gives quarters to the town crier and creates additional difficulties for his son, King Felipe VI.

Thus, the feared polarizing effect of the visit could not be avoided. On one side, those who are willing to forget the reprehensible behavior of the old king. To the other, those who take advantage of the occasion to express an anti-monarchist phobia that goes beyond the disapproval of the emeritus shooting for elevation against Felipe VI and what he represents.

Both sides attack the PSOE. From the right, for indolent. From the left, for complacent. Both accuse him of putting himself in profile. But it is not true. Pedro Sánchez and his party do what they have to do as a state party: be critical of the emeritus and respectful of the Constitution. Always in line with the line marked by the House of the King, since his son, with the consent of the Government, pointed out to his father the path of estrangement. Namely: the interests of the Crown are above the preferences of the King Emeritus.

The socialist part of the Government expresses its explicit, firm and unequivocal support for King Felipe VI and the parliamentary monarchy as elements of stability in the system. And, at the time, disapproves of the opaque and not exactly exemplary behavior of Don Juan Carlos de Borbón, from whom they continue to demand explanations. Out of respect for citizens. As an ethical requirement, since the judicial one (the Corina case, which is being followed in London, is a civil lawsuit) has declined inside and outside of Spain.

The former king of Spain continues to turn a deaf ear to the claimed explanations. It will never give them. He knows that there is much to apologize for and little or nothing to explain. Everything is explained publicly, in great detail, in the factual accounts produced in the three major investigative processes already filed that weighed on him in the judicial sphere.

The old king cannot, does not want to, explain what is already known. Needless. The only thing he could do, as a mitigating factor, is apologize, apologize and publicly acknowledge that in the final part of his reign his public and private behavior left much to be desired.

But not even remotely has it crossed his mind to do something extremely. He already did it once 10 years ago (“I’m so sorry, I was wrong, it won’t happen again”) and the contrition lasted as long as it lasted.
