Coming from Manuel, it's natural that he thinks that the king of Spain is coming in a grand gesture to liberate us and allow hordes of portuguese to cross Spain eager to invade Europe, the one that starts after the Pyrenees .
As to poor Marcelo, what's to say ?
He is unofficially in campaign, things are not so smooth as he expected and every pretext to appear is a good one, no matter how silly it is.
Is it known the number of the delegations ?
Will it surpass the number of people present at the parties Pr. Joachim attended ?
Interesting to count how many will get infected after the little roadshow .
And don't forget the ubiquitous sheepy press .
But, of course, from this side of the border, it's a leftist show and all socialist/comunist events-fêtes-parties-rallies-you name it have the seal of approval of His Clownesque Excellency .
By now, our Stan and Laurel duo must already be packing and planning the journey to the border in grand style.
As they say, karma is a b...h, and on July 1st in Alentejo it's expected a mild 38ºC in Elvas .
My two pence for the show:
They could recreate the bridge over the Caia river and build a replica of the wooden and silk Pavillion for the Infantas Exhange (with a/c of course) and serve light refreshments inside .
Just a thought. Panem et Circenses.
For two heads of state in deep need of good press and a little panache.
Just a thought
BTW Did the king open any border with France, or was Macron too busy to perform these clownesque acts ?
Oh dear, oh dear, my Muse just left
