Reality bites

Mark Nayler

...phase based on dialogue and the rule of law... [S]o that Catalonia can play its role as a motor for growth in [Spain]". Calviño was talking, of course, about the Supreme Court's sentences for leading Catalan secessionists, finally handed down on Monday ... to make examples of the secessionists, have caused public outrage in Catalonia. Former Catalan president Carles Puigdemont, still in self-imposed exile in Belgium after fleeing in the wake of the 2017 referendum, wrote an impassioned article in The ... Certainly, the secessionists did act illegally in organising the October 2017 referendum, which was declared unconstitutional in advance by Spain's Constitutional Court. Some kind of punishment, you could argue, was necessary. But what about a lengthy ban

A precedented situation

Mark Nayler

...them casts doubt on the secessionists' claim that an independent Catalonia would be economically stronger than it is now. Tourism in Catalonia, the most visited and wealthiest region of Spain, has also taken a hit since last autumn. Just a month ... secessionists have either forgotten about what's happened since last October, or they're more confident now because Constitution-wielding Mariano Rajoy is no longer their "negotiating" partner. New Socialist prime minister Pedro Sánchez has stated that he's ... open to "dialogue" with the secessionists, but only a dialogue that results in Catalonia remaining part of Spain (he's every bit as committed to the Spanish Constitution as Rajoy). In fact, the secessionists face a government just as opposed to their

A difficult summer

...crucial decisions in a crisis situation (although such criticism is an essential part of any healthy, self-examining democracy). Among the prime minister's severest critics are Catalan secessionists, who have wasted no time in exploiting the pandemic to

Front line politics

Mark Nayler

President of Castilla-La Mancha, recently said that to "water down the crime of sedition" would be tantamount to inviting it to "happen every weekend" (which probably doesn't even qualify as overstatement for the most vehement anti-secessionists). So far,

Back and forward

Mark Nayler

Court banned Quim Torra, the region's separatist president, from public office for eighteen months and fined him 30,000 euros. His alleged offence? Failing to remove street banners calling for the release of imprisoned secessionists during an election ... campaign in March. Clearly, the Spanish judiciary is in no mood to relax its draconian stance on Catalan secessionists, which will only spur them on. We can be sure, then, that the year to come will be just as fascinating, complex and shocking as the one

Taking a short cut

Mark Nayler

Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC), which abstained at Sánchez's investiture session on the condition that the Socialist leader open talks with Catalan secessionists. Now, the ERC's crucial budget votes - or abstentions, at least - depend on Sánchez's

Too close to call?

Mark Nayler

...although it's unlikely to be granted by the European Parliament. It's as if the Spanish judiciary aims to satisfy both secessionists and nationalists at the same time, by saying "we want Junqueras out of jail, but not off the hook completely". The State

A day of two halves

Mark Nayler

secessionists fled the country or were imprisoned. Neither side came out of it well: Rajoy appeared as a belligerent reactionary, while the "independistas" displayed a complete lack of regard for Spanish law. When the region's pro-secession government ... unilaterally declared independence from the rest of Spain on October 27th of that year, it did so despite a lack of majority support among Catalans. Now led by Quim Torra, the secessionists still lack such backing: a poll commissioned by the region's government

Flip-flop

Mark Nayler

...which time he praised the legal process that resulted in their leaders' lengthy prison terms. But if he refuses to talk, as he has since the controversial sentences were handed down, he would thereby condemn the line he took on secessionists when he came
