They say that there are pictures that are worth a thousand words. It is the maximum that the Government wanted to execute this Friday. Only a few hours after the PSOE and United We Can split their vote for the first time in Congress in a law promoted by the Executive itself, nine ministers plus Pedro Sánchez have attended together the presentation of the Part of the Social and Care Economy. An appointment in which the President of the Government has boasted of “great team” after the tensions and divergences became present again.

“Progressive Coalition Government”. Not once, not twice, not three times. It has been a recurring tagline that Sánchez has used during the event held in La Moncloa. Careful words where “Government” was not spoken of as on other occasions. This Friday there was more “progressive coalition.” A claim to show unity.

In the first row and showing that image of unity, the vice presidents Nadia Calviño and Yolanda Díaz, and the ministers Félix Bolaños, Isabel Rodríguez, José Luis Escrivá, Ione Belarra, Luis Planas, Irene Montero and Carolina Darias listened.

“Thank you all for the work,” was the direct message to his ministers that Sánchez has publicly launched. “Thanks and pride for the great team I have in the progressive coalition government.”

A staging to try to suture the wounds and cracks that became visible in Congress during the processing and voting of the Audiovisual Law: the PSOE managed to approve it thanks to the abstention of the PP, because partners such as ERC and Bildu voted against, and United Podemos, despite being a law promoted by the Executive, abstained to show its disagreement with some changes introduced by the Socialists without negotiating them with them.

That yes, gratitude, but also a kind of veiled order: “There is much to do and that is what we dedicate ourselves to, dear ministers in the progressive coalition government.” And in case it wasn’t clear, he insisted: “We must show that we have the desire and energy to carry out all the reforms for the benefit of the social majority.”
