The first day of work after the holidays is funny. But the second? What do we do with the second? Well, rejoice because it’s Friday.
Grab a coffee and let’s get down to business.
Pedro Sánchez does not want to lose the initiative and has started September with a surprise: VAT on the gas bill will drop from 21% to 5%. For now it will be applied to receipts for October, November and December, but it looks like we will have another announcement at Christmas that extends the measure. This formula, which makes no difference between those who have a lot or little money, had been proposed by the PP and rejected by the Government until the day before yesterday (literally). Here Marco Swchartz analyzes how problematic this VAT reduction is from a left-wing point of view.
Seven autonomous communities have stood a week before the start of the school year without having approved the official agenda for schools nor the reforms derived from the new education law, which they are few and important.

If it was seen coming. The Gibraltarian authorities had told us that everything was controlled, but not that much. The semi-sunken oil tanker in the Strait is dumping fuel into the sea and the barrier that had been placed around the ship has not been enough to contain all the leak, which is not much but it is. With the photo it is clear.
That semicircular thing is the barrier. And yes, the stain outside is part of the fuel oil that this tanker was transporting. The good thing is that the fuel that is still inside is being extracted from the ship and that is happening fast. One person has been arrestedalthough it is not yet clear what his role in the incident is.
