El mundo al revés

My son was just singing this song as I was reading about the recent police-state crackdown against highschool students protesting the lack of heating at their school due to the cuts.

The interior minister admitted there had been “some excesses and disproportionate action”, but the education minister said was complaining about “violent protestors and those that infringe the law”. Great to see the education minister sticking up for students.

The President of Spain complained that “Spaniards cannot transmit an image of the country that is not how it is”. Which is to say exactly what?
