Councils are beginning to tighten their belts. For now, on Sumptuary or superfluous things, say so. Of Salamanca, for example, has reduced a quarter its budget of celebrations. Impaired elders, are clear, these musical groups that vivaquean under cover of public money. It is that in Spain we have created a culture industry of the show, rather than subsidized with all taxes and that often lead to cronyism and payment for favors is not known very well who or why.

If other social, educational or training activities of children, put by case, received a fraction of these generous contributions, probably we would not complain after the rise of juvenile delinquency. But I don’t want to divert me from the subject of this article. And the matter is that our municipalities do not have a hard or are expected to have it.

While the insatiable autonomous communities have achieved more insufficient State funding, that Yes, given the waste that characterizes them, the Spanish municipalities will be less every day because, above all, of the real estate slowdown.
