Over a year ago CLR-CLARO became an electoral coalition and later a legal political group in the town hall. A short time after the election Mr. Houliston attempted to annul this “political marriage” to justify his adulterous relationship with the PP. The Central Electoral Board however flatly rejected his feeble attempt to desert his responsibilities. When Mr. Houliston’s extra marital antics with the PP became public knowledge, he was expelled from the CLR-CLARO political group. All loyal supporters of that political group may use the term, except of course the politically adulterous Mr. Houliston.
Mr. Houliston claims that Pedro “undermined” this political marriage by non-cooperation whereas the evidences of his flirtations are there for all to see. Mr. Houliston did not work on or in the marriage and betrayed all who voted for CLR-CLARO. Pedro on the other hand has always been and is loyal and true to the promises he made and to the people who voted for him as the CLR-CLARO candidate for mayor. He still remains the spokesman and leader of the coalition and the political group in the town hall defending the rights and working for the people who made the change of government possible.
Last May 75% of the people of Orihuela Costa voted against the PP. Now Mr. Houliston has unilaterally decided to support and justify that same PP who neglected and plundered Orihuela Costa for 25 years against the democratically expressed wishes of the people he claims to represent. Mr. Houliston’s political adultery could not be worse.
I have defended Pedro Mancebo from the unwarranted and untrue allegations of Mr. Houliston in the media and at public meetings. Pedro refuses to get into a dog fight with Mr. Houliston firmly believing that actions speak louder than words and the public will make up their own minds on the matter.
Mr. Houliston refers to me as “Pedro’s personal apologist”, I have never made even one apology for Pedro nor do I need to. The only action for which Pedro should apologise is for trusting Mr. Houliston and believing in him to be an honest person who would keep his word, honour his commitments to the public and those who supported him. Mr. Houliston has let us all down but none more callously than the one who helped him the most – the man who got him elected councillor for the coast.
