In the last few months There have been many zascas that the journalist Vicente Vallés has launched at members of the Government for some decisions taken as a result of the coronavirus crisis, being viral for it on dozens of occasions. The funny thing now is that the Antena 3 journalist has become a trend in social networks again and not because of something he has said now, since he is on vacation, but because of a question he asked the politician Pablo Iglesias in 2016, in a debate for the general elections of that year.
Pablo Iglesias and Vicente Vallés
The video has come to light again after what we learned in recent days that Juan José Escalonilla, head of the Court of Instruction number 42 of Madrid, has charged Podemos as a legal entity, the Secretary of Communication of Podemos Juan Manuel del Olmo, a close associate of the second vice president, and the treasurer and the party manager Daniel de Frutos and Rocío Esther Val, for alleged irregular financing in the purple party. A movement that occurs after some accusations of the lawyer José Manuel Calvente.
Well, in the electoral debate that Ana Blanco, Vicente Vallés and Pedro Piqueras presented in 2016 and which was broadcast in prime time on the main television networks, the Atresmedia journalist asked the leader of United We Can: « Mr. Iglesias, under what circumstances would you assume political responsibility for cases of corruption in your party? ». The politician and now vice president of the Government hesitated to respond in a direct and blunt way: « Opening of oral trial, resignation. So fast and so concrete ».
Four years later…
An answer that without intending it in its day now contrasts with what has happened and is that four years later, he and his party have not hesitated to reject the resignations of the workers who have been summoned to testify on November 20 as defendants. A contradiction that has been shared by many Internet users who They have not hesitated to charge Iglesias and his people for not complying with what he promised in his day regarding the transparency of the political party that now forms a government together with the PSOE.
