All politicians look the same in Tenerife

imageIf you can’t tell one politician from another (and much less their policies), rest assured, you are not alone …

Two 15 year-old girls in Tenerife bumped into the leader of the opposition, Mariano Rajoy (pictured left) - who has been visiting La Gomera and Tenerife today – and asked to have their photo taken with him, convinced he was prime minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero (pictured right and more usually confused with Mr Bean.)

The girls recognized the leader of the PP (or People’s Party) as a famous politician, so they wanted to take a picture with him. After posing with Mariano Rajoy, the girls commented enthusiastically: "We've taken a photo with the Prime Minister. "

"Not yet …" Rajoy said the teenagers, to which they replied: "But aren’t you Zapatero?". Rajoy and his party laughed and continued walking.
