The heat is getting to them

After six months of peaceful council meetings, last night the fireworks returned. Apparently, the debate was forceful but not acidic as it had been when José Joaquín Moya was mayor.

However, some of the members of the public who were present became very vocal and insulting so the mayor decided to expel them. The thorny issue was apparently about who was going to pay for the new electrical cable to the industrial estate. It wasn't just one political party that were being attacked, it was both.

The PP party felt that the problems and the abuse were mainly coming from just one person, a close friend of the ex mayor so the opposition councillors decided to leave along with the members of the public.

The meeting then continued in peace with just the members of the PSOE present who managed to agree to reduce the rates.
