Politics in Andalucia

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by missrcp, Mar 20, 2011.

  1. Hi everybody! I am an NQT teaching French and Spanish and I am currently doing Andalusia as my culture topic with year 13. I am going to do a lesson on the politics of Andalucia but am struggling to prepare it as to be honest, i really don't know a lot about politics in general. Anyone who could point me in the right direction, maybe a good website or resource, i'd be eternally grateful!
    Thanks!

  2. Dear confused friend,

    You have chosen a very difficult topic as politics here in Andalucía is a mess, you do not have much to learn from andalucian politicians. But briefly: this is a time of changes in Andalucia after thirty years of Socialist dominion. Andalucia is well known as having being the votes harvest for Spanish Socialist Party aduring all Democracy period but it has come to an end. Andalucia has the highest level in Europa of unemployed people and the system is corrupted because past governors designed a extended net of Public sevants and organizations that receive public fundings.
    To understand this you have to know that Andalucia is divided in two lifestyles: the western Andalucia and eastern Andalucia. The grow of the right liberal party has begun from the eastern because here there more groccery owners than employees in the other part. In Sevilla, Córdoba etc....work "latifundios, large lands belongin to an owner. You cannot find that in Almeria, where I live.
    Tell me specific questions and I will help.
    Best wishes from Almeria, Andalucia,

    Adolfo
     
  3. One importat general picture for you pupils to understand.
    After 40 years of dictatorship of Franco in Spain, when democracy came back, Cataluña and Basque regions politicians asked to restore what has been a sort of political adventure in the crazy thirties, Autonomous Goverments. Well they all agreed to extend that autonomous structure to whole Spain, that had always been a very centralized country since 1492. Everybody from every corner of Spain (Galicia, Asturias, Castilla....) appeared witha particular story of medieval kings and past wars...and this way we are nearly ruined because all the expenditures of so many administrations.
    Apologize for my English!

    That´s a matter of opinion.

    But you most certainly do owe us an apology for posting twice such narrow, politically biased, historically unsubstantiated nonsense about the painful, tragic, convoluted history of 20th century Spain.

    Where do I start ?

    Perhaps you would be willing to explain the expression café para todos, including obviously both its origins and its consequences.

    As for your opinions of 21st century Spain......
