In relation to the hotel where he was making the live connection, Revilla commented that during the advertising break he had received calls from « number of outraged people« for an error in a label: » I think you have put Las Anclas, that the hotel is correct, as well as the Shipyard, but in the Santander parenthesis. Santander is the capital of Cantabria« corrected the president.
« It is a job that I have been doing for 43 years for this land to be called Cantabria, » explained Miguel Ángel Revilla. Iñaki López, jokingly about the ruling, assured that « the corresponding corrective » would be applied to the culprit: « Don’t worry that there is a torture rack that we have here specially prepared for circumstances of this type and today we are going to apply it. There is no doubt that there has been a mistake, Michelangelo, I apologize to you and the Cantabrians. It is already corrected ».
