Understandably, the remarks made by the president of the local party, José Antonio Ricart to the press have angered the mayor. She had already been sidelined as a delegate for the PP conference which was insult enough but yesterday things went too far.
It was the accusations about Bañuls father that caused the most anger. She says that they amount to slander and will take the matter to court.
Bañuls went on to explain that her father is retired, he has nothing to do with politics- the warehouse in question belongs to Bañuls Upholstery and was discharged in 2007. She says that since then, property tax of 2,000 Euros a year has been paid which is one of the highest rates in the town.
