In the debate in the municipality of Castrillón (Asturias) to request the inclusion of the Asturian in the Statute, the councilor of IU made part of his speech in Asturian. The answer of the councilor of the PP, Pablo González-Nuevo Quiñones, was to describe the use of the Asturian in the town hall of “esperpento” and that he hoped that it would not be repeated. “It’s a language that is not official and I think it’s illegal.” He affirmed that he had the right to learn “in the only official language here”, that he had not understood “half speech” and that “I do not want to understand it either”.
