A big story here over the last week or so has concerned the optional extras some Generalitat officials have had installed in their cars. Well, one guy and one car. Ernest Benach, President del Parlament, was reported to have spent around €10,000 having a TV and a desk installed into his official car*. Sort of like a Catalan Republican Left version of Pimp My Ride, the popular prostitution-themed auto improvement show on MTV.
Now, I'm not sure, but I reckon you could get a much better 'pimped' solution for 10 large than a TV and a writing table. What about a hot tub? Or one of those light-cum-woofer systems in the boot? Obviously a bar is a must, and it must include those cool blue flourescent tube light things.
And what about rims, go faster stripes (four red ones) and a dashboard laptop?
What would you pimp your car with, if you were President of the Catalan Parliament?
* Apparently, Benach has now returned the pimping items and ERC are now restricting spending to all but essential expenses… but we can still have our fun, right?
