Eduardo Serra, former Minister of Defense with the first Government of José María Aznar, has granted an interview to the newspaper The Spanish in which he has left a striking phrase about the King Juan Carlos I, whose financial scandals have put the Real home in a very complicated situation.
Asked about this matter, the person who was the head of Defense answers the following:
“Juan Carlos is the Spanish who has done the most for progress and peace among Spaniards. That we are now, without a sentence involved, kicking him like that, I’m ashamed. I really am ashamed. I have seen how it has helped companies and political forces to reach agreements. That we pay him like this… ”.
These last words about ‘how we pay for it’ are those that have generated a notable mess on the networks, where the comments were immediate:
I know that it must be difficult to defend the Spanish monarchy without making an important ridicule. But, I don’t know, the strong argument is not how badly we have paid King Juan Carlos. https://t.co/jSCo7GgyXi
