President Francina Armengol of the Balearics

President Armengol, during an interview with IB3 on New Year's Eve.


"We say goodbye to a very tough year, and 2021 starts with hope."

President Armengol's New Year message on Friday offered her thanks to everyone. On her Twitter account she gave thanks "for what you have done, for what you will do, for never giving up and always doing your best". "Together, we will smile again. In a 2021 full of health, dreams and hugging again."

The message was accompanied by excerpts from her New Year video, which featured contributions from six people who had been affected by the pandemic in different ways.

This woman has just added to the problem and has done little to help anybody but her own political career. I'll be glad to see the back of this woman come the Elections.

The President's best New Year message and resolution should be to herself.....1. I will listen more to the advice of those who know better than me (and I will find people who really do know what they are talking about to advise me!!!)...2. I will take the opportunity to diversify the Balearic economy seriously rather than just agreeing thats its a good idea and then doing nothing positive....3. I will be strong with dictats from Madrid that are negative to the development of life in, and the Balearic economy....4. I will learn what sustainability really means and adopt these internationally recognised principles...5. I will respect all sectors of society and industry and will not be subservient to 'big business' interests....6. I will personally obey all rules and regulations that may be necessary to fight the Covid pandemic (and I acknowledge that I have not done this in the past!!)....I will ensure that our agencies are led and operated by people who are experts in their field rather than just political supporters.......All considered, the chances of these being adopted are slim, but miracles do sometimes happen....Happy New Year to all
