    let's forget about victimhood ... this is a private contest ... and some bases and they all have the same opportunities and we talk about art ... we do not mix churros with meninas ... ..the roundabouts is another topic ... .. public money ... ..and that circulates in envelopes .. it's just a matter of seeing the address and the sender

    As always, the aid money and stories of these are taken by those who are not from the town, as the help of employment improvements of the denia roundabouts is taken by those who are not from the town, so we will never get out of crisis, and denia every time it is more empty
