Jardim reacts to Expresso through cartoon
'The Expresso is set against Madeira'...'Almost nobody here buys the main newspaper of the "termites"'
The Expresso is owned by Pinto Balsemão, former Portuguese Prime Minister and PSD leader.
The "termites" or "white ants" are a term Jardim uses to qualify those he also designates as 'undesirable', 'marginal', 'criminal' elements of the 'old soceity'. He often urges the population to 'erradicate' these undesirables and run them out of town.
Rui Fino, former deputy editor of the Jornal, purged in 2000 for complaining about the Government's constant control and interference of the newpspaper's editorial line, identified Jardim as being the author of the the cartoon's captions.
