A comment by José Bono about Julio Anguita in La Sexta Noche has aroused

the ire of the left


The former president of the Junta de Castilla-La Mancha between 1983 and 2004 and Minister of Defense between 2004 and 2006

called the deceased historic leader of the Left "intellectually poor".

Among other statements, Bono affirmed that the hug between Pablo Iglesias and Julio Anguita in the first electoral campaign in which Izquierda Unida and Podemos converged together in the general elections disappointed him, because he had Iglesias in "a better concept in the intellectual field."

"Anguita seemed to me intellectually poorer," he added.

His comment did not go unnoticed and the first reactions were seen on Twitter.

The former vice president of the Government and candidate of United We Can to the Presidency of the Community of Madrid, Pablo Iglesias, called the socialist "indecent" for these words.

"This indecency further enhances Julio's political and intellectual example," he added.

"That does not even reach the soles of his shoes" was the statement with which Iglesias's colleague

Pablo Echenique

qualified these controversial statements


who assured that "Bono works so that those below do not have rights and those above maintain your privileges. "

The Andalusian deputy

Teresa Rodríguez

was also very critical


"Bono saying that Anguita was intellectually poor ... I find it curious how, after he died, the PSOE still hurts Anguita so much, do you know why? Because he put a mirror in front of them and his neoliberal face was unbearable to look at, like the portrait of Dorian Gray, "she commented indignantly to add then:" But here we are, those of us who admired and loved him, that we are many and many more than the most rancid and rough of the PSOE, like you, Pepe Bono. "

The outrage was on the rise in the networks.

Thus, some tweeter argued that "10,000 bonds do not make half Anguita."

And others agreed with Echenique that Bono does not "reach the bottom of his shoes."
