So unwilling it seems to grab the stoppage by the horns which after threaten to freeze the salary of officials, immediately proposes as a way to reduce the deficit not to replace nine of every ten civil servants who retire. Or: more unemployment. Both Rodriguez Zapatero fears the unpopularity, which prefer to keep us in the crisis to ask for shared sacrifice to overcome it.
