I wish to extend my sympathies to the families of the two women who were killed in the rock fall, and now having done that I'd like to make a comment about the statements made by the Santiago del Teide mayor, Senor Gorrin, in relation to the tragic event.
It would seem that, Senor Gorrin, like all politicians is trying to 'pass the buck' when some thing like this happens. Party politics should not 'come into play', especially, after the lives of those two women being lost. Bureaucracy, whether it be of the Canarian variety or otherwise is to blame for this tragic accident occurring. It doesn't matter whether you're a socialist, a nationalist, a conservative or a liberal. If you're elected to office or work in the public sector your job is to serve and protect the public to the best of one's abilities. That's what working in the Public Service is all about and party politics should come second to that!
Going by what I've read to date on the tragic event there was an earlier rock fall back in early October. Why wasn't that particular area of the beach cordoned off better than it was. May be if a better job had been done back then this particular tragedy mightn't have happened? One can only speculate? I say stop the 'blame game' and get on with doing the job that needs to be done, and quickly!!!!!
