SPAIN WILL SET A NEW EMBASSY IN FREMET
The possible building where the Spanish Embassy in Fremet could be
Spain increases the number of embassies around the European Union. Some people that prefer to be anonymus said that "in the next few days we could see a new Spanish Embassy in Fremet" This would increase to 4 the number of embassies in Europe. Alfonso Dastis, in the traditional press conference after the Minister's Council, said that "Spain will always have its arms open to recive new ambassador from other European Union countries, as our compromise is to upgrade and establish as many diplomatic relationships as possible, as we are very compromised with the common European Union project".
SUSANA DÍAZ (PSOE) - THE TRIFARCHITO IS DAMAGING ANDALUCÍA
Susana Díaz, On Canal Sur Radio This Morning
Susana Díaz, Head of the Oppposition in Andalucía, said that the Trifarchito formed by the Partido Popular, Ciudadanos and VOX will damage Andalucía even more than they 3 said Partido Socialista Obrero Español did. She said that "when the Junta de Andalucía was managed by my party, and I was the President, we were doing extremly better than now. To pass any important law such as the Andalucía's budget for 2020 or any economical or social upgrade, they need VOX, a far-right party, to support them. Where the hell in Europe we see democratic parties like el Partido Popular or Ciudadanos asking for support to a far-right party like VOX? Nowhere. Andalucía needs to wake up from this nightmare and remember that my party, who has been in the government for 40 years until Juanma Moreno take the Presidency, has done a 1000 times better than this 2 years of centre-right coalition government".
SPANISH DIPLOMATS GO BACK TO THE UNITED REICHS OF REITZMAG AS THE GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES THE END OF ALL THE EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES
The URR Spanish diplomats taking off from Antequera
Julia Otero: The Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Alfonso Dastis; and the Minister of Local Government, Juan Ignacio Zoido, have announced that the Spanish diplomats that were rescued from Reitzmag are coming back this night and the embassy will be reopened from tomorrow morning. Dastis refeared to this decision as "the end of the war in the URR and the management to get an agreedment". Juan Ignacio Zoido, Minister of Local Goverment, has announced that "risk has gone away and the extraordinary measures that we have taken are going to be removed this night from 0:00 CET."
JO: About the recognition of the new former state of Icholasen, Mr. Dastis said that "we are not going to recognise new Icholasen until a democratic process is held. At the moment, Queen Anastasia is the Icholasen's head of State for us. Still, we don't understand how did the United Reichs of Reitzmag recognised a communist uprise in Icholasen, even if they tried to push them off from their own country. It's a complete mess what is going on there, and we'll be expecting everything closely to be ready to take new measures if needed."
ALBERTO GARZÓN (IU): ICHOLASEN IS TRUSTWORTHY WHILE REITZMAG HAS LOST ITS MIND
Today in El País we've interviewed Alberto Garzón, leader of IU (A coalition of Communists parties of Spain), PCE (Partido Comunista de España) and Vice-Secretary of Unidas Podemos, the far-left party leaded by Pablo Iglesias.
Journalist: What do you think about our Government?
Alberto Garzón: This oppresive government leaded by Mr. Jesús Aguilar is getting us to nowhere. At least, the Government has showed to Europe that in case of a huge European War, we're ready to stay neutral and isolate ourselves from the rest of Europe.
J: Have you heard about the kidnap of Bernie Sanders, from the USNR?
AG: I have. Our comrades from Icholasen have all the Spanish Communist Parties support, specially from Izquierda Unida and the Partido Comunista Español, those who I do lead. Icholasen it's a very trustworthy nation, while the United Reichs of Reitzmag has definetly lost its mind. How can you kidnap someone to get planes with the intention of bombing Inquista? That only happens on the movies where people lost their minds. We should start thinking on retiring our diplomats from there before some crazy terrorist kidnaps them.
J: Could a communist revolution take place in Spain?
AG: Sadly no. We aren't enough to have a communist revolution, but we could reach the Government if people realises that we, the communists, are the only hope that Europe actually has.
BREAKING NEWS: SPAIN FOLLOWS GALLORUM AND ANGLETER AND TAKES MEASURES AGAINST REITZMAG
An Iberia's A340-600 landing at Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas Airport
The Government has taken a decision and passes a bunch of measures in response of the kidnap of Mr. Bernie Sanders, from Icholasen, by the United Reichs of Reitzmag. Measures were also taken by the governments of Gallorum and Angleter. The measures have been signed by the President, Mr. Jesús Aguilar, the Vice-President, Ms. Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría and 7 Ministers, incluiding Foreign Affairs or Local Government.
In the last few hours 4 Iberia's A340-600, company of the group IAG (Iberia and British Airways plus others) have took off from Reitzmag in order to bring Spanish tourists back to Reitzmag, and Reitzmatic companies have evacuated all of those that have refused to get the Spanish Nationality in order to keep their job. As far as we can know, the Reitzmatic ambassador, who has a very similar appearance to the Ex-Minister of the Government in 2004, Mr. Federico Trillo, has not alredy left our country. The Spanish ambassador in Reitzmag is spected to arrive at 21:00 CEST, and at 22:00 CEST, the same will happen with all the tourists on Reitzmag, more than a thousand.
The President is expected to give a press conference the 1st April in order to inform the nation about the measures and how this operative has developed.
BREAKING: SPANISH GOVERMENT COMPLETES THE PLAN AFTER THE HARD MEASURES AGAINST REITZMAG
The Guardia Civil arresting one of the URR's Embassy Staff this morning
"The operation has been successfull. Spain has managed to complete the operation shutdown in 24h.", said Miguel Villarroya, Jefe del Estado Mayor de la Defensa, this morning. "As far as we reach to know, no citizen from Reitzmag with the Reitzmatic Nationality is left on our country, same with our citizens there. All of them have come back to Spain arriving last night in Madrid Barajas, and then, they were distributed in buses to get them back home".
Juan Ignacio Zoido, minister of Local Government, said that 203 Reitzmatic citizens have refused to the Reitzmatic Nationality in order to get the Spanish Nationality and keep their jobs and life on Spain. He also said that "no refuses to the Spanish Nationality were made on the United Reichs of Reitzmag, so all of our citizens are back home safely." Zoido also said that the Cuerpos y Fuerzas de Seguridad del Estado, incluiding the Spanish Army, is ready to keep any Reitzmatic thing out from our country.
Alfonso Dastis, Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, has said that" I'm very happy with the results that the operation has given. Spain has accomplishedthe measures. The ambassador, his family and the staff are being sent back to the United Reichs of Reitzmag this morning."
The President, Jesús Aguilar, said that "Spain has showed Europe that if a nation kidnaps a very important person from other country, Spain is ready to follow the example of others, to lead or cooperate with the other European nations. We had good relations with the URR, but, as we thought when Dastis told us everything he saw, Reitzmag is a mess that doesn't know where they are going. That's why we have setted those hard measures, the hardest on the whole of the European Union. If URR dared to kidnap the Foreign Affairs Minister of Icholasen, why won't they do it with me or with any other important politician from Europe?"
ALFONSO DASTIS: MR. GREEN'S WORDS ARE OUT OF PLACE
Alfonso Dastis has answered to the threatenings coming from the Kingdom of Reitzmag about attack Spain and suggesting we could die because of their power. Mr Green, on his letter, said that "The Foreign Minister of Spain even called us a messy place despite their country being so damn hot and him even seeing for his own eyes the beauty and luxury in the kingdom when he visited us. The Spanish Government even called the kingdom as a national enemy despite the great relations we had together just because you are afraid to die. Or maybe you all are just communists very afraid of us capitalists that we may attack you. If you are not afraid of being the next in line to Comrade Sanders, then lift the sanctions imposed to the entire nation or limit them to a lower level."
Mr. Dastis, after this happenings, came up on a Press Conference, and said the following things: "Reitzmag is still as messy as before Coventry was killed, because the whole European Union knows that Coventry didn't kill himself. If our country is damn hot, then why did tourists from the URR came here? We are not as hot as uncultures people like Mr. Green think." Then, he added some comments about the bad part of Mr. Green comments: "This letter shows the rest of Europe our reasons to consider Reitzmag a National Enemy. People like Mr. Green are a risk for the rest of Europe."
Alfonso Dastis ended his press conference talking about the threatenings coming from Mr. Green: "Spain will answer according how does the government react to this. If we need to get more sanctions, we'll get them. We are not retiring any measures to let these kind of crazy people to come to our country and kidnap people. We won't allow that. If they try to attack us, we will for sure be ready to attack them."
TRECE TV - CATHOLIC NEWS: CARLOS AMIGO VALLEJO WILL TRY TO BE THE NEXT EU POPE
Carlos Amigo Vallejo, Arbishop of Sevilla, will be the Spanish candidate for being the new European Union Pope. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1960, he became Archbishop of Seville on 22 May 1982. Instead of going to Rome to receive his pallium from Pope John Paul II he received the pallium from Antonio Innocenti, titular archbishop of Eclano, Apostolic Nuncio to Spain, on 29 June 1982 during his installation mass at the metropolitan cathedral of Seville. He has been President of the Spanish "Conferencia Episcopal" from 2010 until 2019. He is a very devote person and give donates every time he can to help poor people in Spain. He is very social and preaches everyone after the mass in Sevilla every day. He also gets part on other projects like picking clothes to donate to poor people. And now, he's trying to be the first Spanish pope in the European Union.
But Carlos Amigo Vallejo won't have an easy way to achieve his dream. He will have to face with 5 others candidates, 1 from the Kingdom of Reitzmag, 1 from Lovrovia and 3 from Angleter. We will soon see if we have "Un papa español" instead of, like we think the song says in Spain... "Un Papa americano".

Quim Torra, the President of Cataluña
The President of Cataluña, Quim Torra, has said on the Parlament de Catalunya that a Referendum should be given to Catalonia before this years ends, and he said that he has a major siupport from the Catalans to do it, and a whole majority in the Parlament. After those words, the other non-independentist parties have started to attack the President Torra in order to bring back the common sense to Cataluña one time at all.
Lorena Roldán and Alejandro Fernández, from Ciudadanos, mostly said the same. "We can't lose our mind once again, we can't make the Catalonians to take part on a tool to make your reputation much better Mr. Torra." Miquel Iceta, from the Partido Socialista de Cataluña, said "Mr. Torra, teh referendum is technically impossible as the ruling party, the Partido Popular, has a majority of 176 seats on the chamber, which makes impossible a Constitutional change without them". Finally, Quim Torra said that "he will do it with or without support of the Spanish Government, and ths time, he said if they would dare to arrest the brave politicians of Catalonia".
ALBERT RIVERA SAYS THAT THE GOVERNMENT PLAN TO GET RURAL POPULATION COULD BE BETTER BUT IT'S ON THE CORRECT PATH
Albert Rivera, during his Press Conference at the Congreso de los Diputados
Albert Rivera, leader of Ciudadanos, has shared his thoughts about the new Government plan to get rural population. This plan has its origin in the latest European Central Bank Credit Worthiness Evaluation, which ranks Spain in the A+ zone, which means that Spain gets a medium-high credit worthiness. The European Central Bank found out that "large cities seem to dominate which means there is little rural population of activity", which means that Spain needs to invest more on it's rural environment and attract people to those village with 9 or less persons living in.
Albert Rivera has said that "the plan it's on the correct path where the government should go to, but it could be better than it actually is". On the Partido Socialista and Unidas Podemos side, they have said "this plan is not fair to those that have nothing, so we will vote against it". The Partido Popular has quickly answered this critics by saying that this is only a 1st Phase on how should things be done, and then, we will start adding more things in order to get a proper rural plan and more habitants living in Spain".

Felipe González and Aznar have said that "the European Progressive Alliance are the ones who are getting their support, and also, they won't vote for a crazy guy or a fully interventionist guy." They have advised Spanish people about the fact that "if Winston gets commission, Europe will get in trouble. Getting Winston as an Internal Affairs commissioner is getting a crazy guy from and a Terrorist country into our institutions, because Winston is controlled by his Government for sure, apart from also putting in risk our soveranity. Believe me when I say this," said González, "freedoms are being compromised with this guy."

It seems that what is broken can be fixed, and that is what has happened with the Catalonian Procés (Procés in Spanish). Quim Torra and the President Jesús Aguilar have both met in the Palacio de la Moncloa this morning, when no one expected a single agreedment. But they have done it and this makes the Procés to finally stop, who knows if it's forever or just for a few weeks, months or years, but we won't be seeing those battles between the Spanish and the Catalonian Government anymore. While Torra arrived with the Referendum proposal, as always, Aguilar had a more relaxed path.
After 3 hours and 45 minutes of an intensive meetings, both appeared in the Press Room together to announce what many Spanish People finally wished. "Today, I have to say that Cataluña's has got what we needed. And it's not a referendum." Said Torra while many Catalonians started to worry on their Televisions, but the Spanish President started to talk: "Spain has finally saw what our mistakes are. We were wrong when Mr. Wert said that we needed to make Spanish the Catalan kids. We were wrong when we marginated some languages and we believed that being like we were in the 70s was the right path. This has been my first meeting with Mr. Torra, and now I know it won't be the last."
Both announced that the Government would start working on the measures from May 18th and they expect to get it done in July, when all the parties will be called for a negociation to pass all the legislation. One thing is certain: Spain is facing a new era.

Madrid Nuevo Norte, in Virtual Reality
The Madrid Nuevo Norte project, wich pretends to give the borough of Chamartín and the north of the city of Madrid a brand new modern and futuristic look, it's ready to start searching for internatioanl investors. BBVA, ADIF, DUCH (now knows as DCN) and the building enterprise San José are the national investors for this project, which makes the exact amount to pay for it. But, this enterprises has decided to host a bid to allow international investors from all Europe (except those countries that are not allowed to invest in Spain like the Kingdom of Reitzmag) to take part in this project, which will reshape approximately 2,65 million square metres of land and create 241.700 new jobs.
The plans include the construction of at least 3 skyscrapers, at a height of 330 meters and stipulates the creation of 348 new office buildings and 11.700 apartments.

AGUILAR - WE ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON THOSE NATIONS THAT WE HAVE PASSED SANCTIONS ON
Jesús Aguilar has been asked today about the Reitzmag's Sanctions by VOX, the far-right party that would like to stop them as soon as possible. Santiago Abascal has said to the President that "Reitzmag is one of the stronger nations in the European Union and we need those sanctions to stop if we don't want to have more problems than we actually have with them", he said as the Parlamentary session went on.
Aguilar then had his turn to answer the far-right party speaker: "Those sanctions are staying for at least, 1 year Mr. Abascal. Spain is not going to RASE, is not sending any exhibitors and also we are not retiring anything as of now. Just look at their councillor elections. No debate, no proposals, just a voting from the deputees. Can we trust on them while this Councillor elections has been a shame? No, we can't. But be sure of one thing: We always keep an eye on those nations thatwe have passed sanctions on." He said.
ALFONSO DASTIS: "WHAT WE HAVE SEEN LAST NIGHT IT'S WHAT WE HAVE BEEN EXPECTING FOR MONTHS"
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation has reacted this morning to the actions taken by Mennrimiak and the Kingdom of Reitzmag, after the words in the Congress of the President, Jesús Aguilar, where he said in response to a question made by Santiago Abascal, from VOX, that the sanctions are going to be kept for a year and that Spain was not assisting to RASE, apart from saying that the councillor elections were undemocratic as it wasn't no debate or anything that could make citizens informed about what the candidates had as proposals.
Dastis, who has been asked by the press before entering the Palacio de la Moncloa, has said: "What we have seen last night it's what we have been expecting for months. If you take good measures against someone, you can expect non-reasonable answers. About Mennrimiak, the speech of the Prime Minister just shows they don't have enough reasons to make this, but they need to support the Kingdom of Reitzmag because if not, like the Spanish say "se forma la marimorena". Then, he has been asked about the payments of Mr. Bridges to the Reitzmic enterpirses: "I didn't know bribing in the Kingdom of Reitzmag is legal, but I'm not surprised." He laughed a bit. "Anyway, that proofs what the President said yesterday. If you can't do a propper democratic elections, you can't pretend to make the enterprises leave without any reason. So that's why you need to pay a billion RPS. Anyway, those enterprises weren't operating here, and we don't buy anything to Reitzmag, so then I don't even understand why they've spent a billion euros for nothing. And about the CBC News, I can confirm operations won't cease, because CBC España is different to CBC Reitzmag, which means their money is for nothing. Anyway, I want to thank them for giving money to enterprises that are Spanish. That will make their budget increase, and will make employment grow, so thank you".
