Andrea Fabra, a deputy of the ruling party PP in the Spanish parliament, became the center of political storm in the recession-hit country on Friday after video showed her insulting unemployed citizens saying "Screw them all" just seconds after Spanish PM announced austerity measures.
The video shows the Spanish deputy, daughter of Castellon's regional council president Carlos Fabra, clapping and yelling "Screw them all" as Mariano Rajoy announced cuts in unemployment benefits as part of new austerity measures designed to slash 65 billion euros from the public deficit by 2014.
Rajoy also announced a 3-point hike in the main rate of Value Added Tax on goods and services to 21 percent and cuts in civil service pay and perks.
Spain's main opposition party PSOE has asked the PP deputy to give up her seat. "Andrea Fabra must leave her seat. She is not worthy of representing the citizens. He shouted 'Fuck them all' when Rajoy announced the cuts to the unemployed, “the Socialists claimed on their Twitter account.
Fabra has admitted having pronounced those words but claims she was referring to the PSOE members of parliament, who were interrupting Rajoy's speech with jeers and boos.
