Spain: where soldiers use nazi tattoos

    Can you imagine a Hitler dedicated memorial in Berlin?…How many german streets got nazi officials names?…How many Mussolini supporters asociations are funded by public money in Italy?  I don’t know the answer to all those questions, but I can assure in Spain you still can find analogue things to all mentioned before..

   A country where Nuremberg never happened, where thousands of soldiers who fought at Hitler’s orders against the allies neves had to face a jury, the “feeling” about nazis, 2nd WW etc…is quite different to the rest of Europe.  Can you imagine a german soldier with a nazi tatoo being paid by the german Government with public funds? I don’t think so. But in Spain you can,as you can see in the pic.

   Zero tolerance with leftists icons, but a swastika or General Franco’s emblems? that’s right for the Spanish democracy. If instead a nazi swastika this soldier would use an ETA anagram, he would spend the rest of his life in prision. What about his superiors? None of them have seen this soldier is wearing a nazi swastika in his arm?  you’ve got to see it to believe it.

Can you imagine a Spanish version of… “The office”?

Of course I can…     the problem is that probably most clerks would be just temporary, so the audience would never get to know all those changing characters every episode.   The boss would be no David Brent at all, he’d probably spend all day crying about how things are getting worse day by day and who will be next to be fired  (played by Antonio Resines?).      In the meanwhile, everyone would be too busy shouting at each other with no time for jokes.     No fun at all.
