[Written in my Exercise Book at the school in Galway – the last two paragraphs of a redaction on politics in Spain:]


We can write books and books about the non-democratic Government of Spain, but now the principal thing I have to say is that Spain hasn’t a democratic government. Spain has a Fascist government and it’s a true dictatorship, because the three powers are in the hands of the same person: Franco has the legislative power, Franco has the executive power and Franco has, at last, the judicial power.


Will it change in the future? I think so. I wait it to change. I will work for it. But some time must pass in order to change the ways of thinking of the Spanish people. We have to work all the time for a better Spain.
