Pastel por tortilla

Otra consecuencia de la lamentable tapa del 17 de junio de The Times de Londres. Es la carta de Miriam González, la mujer del viceprimer ministro británico, Nick Clegg:
Sir, Now that Spain has won the World Cup and Iker Casillas demonstrated on Sunday that he is an outstanding goalkeeper regardless of whether his girlfriend, Sara Carbonero, watches him from the touchline or not, it may be time for you to eat a bit of humble pie. Trying to blame Sara for Spain’s initial lacklustre performance while she was simply doing her job (“Spanish inquisition blames WAG after Swiss vanquish the favourites”, June 17) was not worthy of a newspaper that should treat women for who they are and not simply for what their male partners do.
Y contesta James Harding, editor del Times:
Congratulations on your team’s victory in the World Cup. You in particular will be glad to know that we scrupulously recognise women for what they are and not what their partners do. We are not over fond of humble pie but if you, Sara Carbonero or Iker Casillas are ever passing, please do drop by for a slice of tortilla.
Miriam González Durántez es abogada, natural de Olmedo, un pueblo de la provincia de Valladolid. Puede verlo en castellano en Europa Press. Pero lo encontré gracias a What's Next, el blog de Juan Antonio Giner.
