A politician resigns without thinking, there remains dignity

 

Can you imagine for a moment that a political appointee resigns after an act unworthy of his office?

You are right, has passed!

What should never be news in a democracy it has been. Is about Narcissus Clé, ex-responsable de tránsito en Girona que, after an honorable race from 1998 in that position, fue pillado in fraganti circulando a 160 Km/h por una autopista. Clé estaba durante esos días analizando las consecuencias de una velocidad inadecuada en los accidentes en carretera.

Is it a scandal? Of course, alguien como Clé debía dar ejemplo y circular a la velocidad adecuada, in this case 120Km / h.

But it's been something exceptional: Clé presentó la dimisión a su superior solo tres segundos tras haber sido detenido por la policía Sí, He resigned immediately and no one had asked him.

In a sensible world, Clé sería una persona digna and new job opportunities so it has done. An error is always an experience, like a failure. Our culture is based on cynicism fueled by political classes that do not include the word “resignation” in its dictionary. Y por eso Clé será repudiado. Hoy mismo he podido leer cómo la prensa le ha sacado -en términos futbolísticos- Red card.

No conozco a Clé ni a nadie de su círculo, pero le envío mi más sincera muestra de apoyo. There is still dignity. And dignity is more precious than prestige. Luck, Clé!
