      Maybe the PP believes in “equality, justice, and diversity, rejecting privileges, impunity, and amnesty.” but Vox certainly does not! The bloodbath that ETA unleashed AFTER democracy was realised, AFTER ALL PARTIES were LEGALISED should NEVER, EVER be whitewashed, or forgotten.

      Someone should write an an article about what exactly happened to Miguel Ángel Blanco, and the multitude of others who fell foul of ETA, but do not turn to Vox, they are themselves dubious characters who wish to force their views on every single person living in Spain, maybe Europe as a whole, with their right-wing cronies.
