Sitting on the fence

When it came to a vote on whether to adopt the plan to subsidise books and materials for schoolchildren, the socialists in Bigastro voted in favour, Aurelio Murcia voted against and the PP abstained.

The socialists say that this puts Bigastro in a unique situation because every other town in the Province has voted to provide the funds to help children's education, even those with PP run councils.

Nobody would deny that buying books for children's education is an investment in the future and apart from Aurelio Murcia, all of the councillors in Bigastro would agree. Although the PP are not saying no, they are not giving the plan the green light that it needs to go ahead.
