In his emotional and grateful speech, he also charged against the health policy of the Community of Madrid, with which he has been very critical. “Speaking of health, I wanted to ask for a round of applause to see if it reaches the Puerta del Sol in Madrid: for the health workers who exposed their lives in the pandemic, in the face of the barbarism that is taking place in the Community in which I live“, he asked the audience.
“Our healthcare system is on the brink of collapse.. I understand that the gala has another purpose, but the health problems of the Spanish affect us all, regardless of the fact that some of us have the possibility of going to private healthcare. The universal and free public health system is one of the pillars of our welfare society. For them. Hopefully this reaches Madrid.”
