If I hadn’t seen and heard him myself, I would have thought it was a joke. In the middle of a parliamentary session, Congressman Carlos Heller, interrupted Luis Contigiani to pay homage to Maradona’s solo goal against England in 1986. Such a frivolous and childish attitude is absolutely obscene in the tragic situation we are undergoing in Argentina. Over 90.000 Covid-19 fatalities, incomplete vaccination process, a heavily strained health system, soaring inflation, businesses going bankrupt, education at all levels severely disrupted, rampant levels of violence, crime and insecurity -among other catastrophic events- and this “alleged” representative makes such a blunder. He’ll probably apologize (if he hasn’t yet), but what’s done is done. Plainly unforgivable.
