The bar in question where Francina Armengol was seen in the late hours

The bar in question where Francina Armengol was.


A witch hunt has been launched at the local police headquarters in central Palma to discover who leaked the story of Balearic President Francina Armengol being in a bar into the early hours to our sister newspaper, Ultima Hora.

Officers were called to the establishment in the capital following complaints from neighbours. To their amazement they discovered Armengol outside. She later admitted that she had been there until 1am and the owner said that she had drunk a single gin tonic, according to press reports.

But the Balearic President had effectively broken the coronavirus protocol which her own government had introduced which limits the opening times of bars and the sale of alcohol.

Red faced officials at the Balearic government had desperately tried to cover up the story and there were heated telephone calls to the local police. But in the end all was revealed.

Opposition parties are calling for last orders from Armengol with the right-wing political group Vox saying that her career is on the rocks.

Thank goodness for the Whistleblowers.I They have previously told us in theUK about politicians ,scientists footballers,etc ,etc continues breaking the rules. Now thanks to whistleblowers we can the cream of British Rugby for going out drinking before the Barbarians v England game resulting in the match being cancelled.Still it has only resulted in a loss of £1 million pounds ,a large amount which would have benefited grass routes rugby throughout the U.K. No doubt no action will be taken because these men are the elite.At least the authorities can continue to prosecute the young and keep the elder in isolation

On a more jovial note, some people are saying that one of her excuses was that she thought that the clocks had gone back.

Witch hunts, whistleblowers etc, call it what every you like...the fact is that a high profile political leader decided that she could break rules as best suited her and not set an example to her constituents and any book of rules, regulations and responsibility that is unacceptable irrespective of their political should she consider her position and resign...of course - your personal standards are deplorable

A witch-hunt for a whistleblower sounds vindictive and spiteful. She was clearly in the wrong, and they tried to cover it up. The only person who should suffer is Armengol herself. She has been useless in this crisis, a total patsy to Sanchez.

Now just imagine how many stories they did manage to cover up successfully in the past. God bless this whitleblower, hope more like him or her emerge in the future.
