Macarena Olona, ​​the sharpest tongue of the Cortes

Macarena Olona is usually very friendly in person. There are pro-independence MPs – among the ones Olona’s party wants to outlaw – who have been surprised by the sympathy they receive from Vox’s deputy spokesman. If in the corridors of the Congress he sows smiles, then on the podium he kindles an extermination fire. In a hyperventilated legislature, the current candidate for the Andalusian Junta, who turned 43 this Saturday, has risen to the highest peaks of verbal aggression. Among his favorite targets are two other women: Congress President Meritxell Butet, who, according to Olona, ​​”prostitutes” the Chamber, and Second Vice President Yolanda Diaz, a “communist minister” and “ugly” on top. .

Felix Bolanos arrived in Congress on Wednesday with a desire for war:

– Mrs. Olona, ​​I see that you are still here and have not finished taking a step towards a trip to Andalusia, – the minister of the presidency answered the question of the deputy Vox. Are you not cowardly far-right?

The ensuing shock was inexpressible. Olona eventually accused the minister of eating shrimp in Barcelona on behalf of the Spaniards after having “humiliated Spain” in front of the independents.

So far, Vox has only announced that his deputy will leave the chair before the start of the Andalusian campaign, on 2 June. Meanwhile, Olona, ​​without the slightest pretense, turned the half-cycle into a ballot box. To the point of an unusual speech in the Chamber, introducing himself as the next President of Andalusia.

The pre-election use of the Congress has already led to some humorous episode before the last elections in Castile and León. At the control meeting, the Government reinstated a practice that had been abandoned due to parliamentary modesty: questions from their own deputies with the invitation of ministers to tell citizens about the superiority of their leadership, in this case about the generosity that various spheres of executive power poured out. over the Castilian and Leonese lands. What happened to Olona last Wednesday surpassed everything seen: he openly used the rostrum of Congress to put forward his candidacy.

Additional Information

The Vox MP started with a question to the Minister for Equality, in which she accused feminism and smashed Simone de Beauvoir. After Irene Montero’s response, Olona stood on the platform and opened, “Today is a special day for me, as I am speaking in this hall for the first time as a candidate for the Presidency of the Junta of Andalusia.” . She then went on to say that “change is starting in Andalusia,” spoke of her brilliant academic career before reaching the position of “public lawyer”—she always says it in the masculine form—and detailed the measures she intends to take “when she becomes president.” “From Andalusia, we will become a light of hope for all of Spain,” he concluded.

With Olona, ​​the performance of the Congress lived unforgettable days. His specialty was to solve the inflamed words that his followers play in those videos that are broadcast on the network under the name “zasca de Olona a …”. A few weeks ago, she appeared in a hemicycle in a military jacket, on which the motto “All for the country” was embroidered. In front of Batet, she honed her skills on April 28, having already invested as a candidate. The day before, he was tried with the president accused of “prostituting” the Chamber for allowing independents to the commission on state secrets. Since no one paid much attention to him that day, he persevered. And the next he managed to attract attention, again with the pretension of the verb “prostitute.” Batet listened to her calmly and, without raising his voice, criticized her for attacking her, knowing that the regulations forbade the president to refute the deputies.

The euphoria of Olona, ​​who describes herself as a “politician in a robe”, soared last October when the Constitutional Court heard Vox’s appeal and reprimanded Bathet for restricting parliamentary activity in the first weeks of the pandemic. From the podium, Olona equated the president with the coup plotter Tejero: “She was condemned for taking over the Congress for more than a month, violating the control functions of this chamber. And then they continue as if nothing happened. Gone is that Spain, in which 17 hours of abduction of congressmen were punished with 30 years in prison.

Olona’s provocative will in her duels with Yolanda Diaz begins with the formulation of questions. One of the last: “Why does it offend you when you are told that you bribed the class alliances?” On December 22, it was unveiled to the Vice President. He gave her a Vox program with a dedication he read in front of the Chamber: “For Yoli, who aspired to become a world leader and did not go beyond fashion.” And then he downloaded: “You have to be very ugly to dare to threaten millions of Spaniards in the temple of truth.” Diaz, who always tried to avoid dirt with her, exhorted her: “Politics is not what you do here, you constantly insult and defame. Politics is a noble cause.

Olona has yet to have his last word in Congress. In the midst of controversy over her express registration in Salobrenia (Granada) to run in elections in the community where she never lived, the MP candidate will return to charge against Bolaños on Wednesday. Anything fits into your question: “Where is this government going?”
