Re: Remains of the husband of the Senora de Meiras
Actually most Spaniards do not care at all about it. And it was voted in the parliament last year and nobody was against ( The PP voted abstention). But it is usually proposed by socialist governments but, in the end, they never carry it out. So, boring... It is only used as kind of distraction of more relevant problems. So, please, move him out of his burial place and move on.
I'm interesting why Spanish conservatives always oppose these plans to rebury Franco. Don't they want to put some "distance" between themselves and his regime? And possibly also a gesture of good will to those who suffered under his regime.
Well, a "usual" news when a socialist Government comes to power. Let's it if this time they actually do it or just propaganda, like in the past. After announcing it, now it is not a "priority". I have read today that the family has written to the Vatican to stop it.
An English-language story about the ongoing efforts to move the remains of the husband of the 1st Senora de Meiras (and father of the 1st Duquesa de Franco) from the basilica of the Valle de los Caidos. Also the remains of the 3rd Marques de Estella (called Duque de Primo de Rivera).
Nothing actually decided yet.
