Fernando Sánchez Dragó, writer and friend of Ramón Tamames, says that on January 11 he had lunch with Santiago Abascal, leader of Vox, and Kiko Méndez Monasterio in what was a friends meal since he assures that he only represents himself and He is not part of any political party.
In that conversation, the need to raise a motion of no confidence against the Government of Pedro Sánchez floated in the environment. The possibility of accompanying her with a candidate who aspired to the investiture of a new Government was raised. 7 or 8 names came to light that they commented together. “In the end, the name of my old friend of 70 years of friendship forged in the Carabanchel prison Ramón Tamames occurred to me,” he says.
“My role here has been anecdotal and I have seen myself as the ideologue of the motion of censure”
His interlocutors seemed fine and asked him if he thought Tamames would accept the proposition. Thus they agreed on the content of the speech that Tamames would carry out in the Congress of Deputies. “My role has been anecdotal and I have seen myself as the ideologue of the motion of censure,” he says.
He has not wanted to reveal the names that were handled at that meal. He points out that it would have been quite a feat to get someone from the old guard of the PSOE, “of which we are aware of the disgust of Sánchez’s current management”, to have led the motion. “If a Felipe González or an Alfonso Guerra had been proposed, that would have had a formidable impact. The Government would have killed it but it was pure dystopia that it happened,” he laments.
Notice a huge difference between public opinion and published opinion on the Tamames motion. He recounts that the people with whom he has spoken about the motion agree “that Sánchez’s speech had been unspeakable, Fidel Castro seemed with very long and soporific speeches.”
“There was no possibility that Tamames would become head of government”
He acknowledges that making a government proposal was useless, since “there was no possibility that Tamames would become head of government.” He also affirms that a motion of no confidence is simply to censor and criticize and air the deficiencies of a certain government, it does not have to be accompanied by a candidacy for president. “I was interested in the destructive part, not the constructive part of the motion.”
