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

Flip-flop

...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

A precedented situation

...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 day of two halves

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

Collateral damage

Mark Nayler

...from 13.1% last year. In throwing their latest tantrum, then, secessionists risk losing something for which they've been campaigning for years. But the separatists are after more than just extra cash. The ERC - whose leader, Oriol Junqueras, is one ... of the politicians to go on trial next week - has requested that Sánchez makes "gestures" regarding either the jailed secessionists, or the possibility of a Madrid-sanctioned referendum on self-determination. If neither are forthcoming, say both the ... secessionists, Sánchez has always been clear about his immovable "red line": that no course of action in violation of the Spanish Constitution will be tolerated by Madrid. Despite this, though, his government has made steps towards reconciliation with Catalan

Double standards

Mark Nayler

...their proposals to slash funding for political parties didn't become legislation! Regarding the Catalan problem and Vox's vehement opposition to secessionists, Spain's Foreign Minister Josep Borrell had some interesting things to say this week. In ... is what they live off". Further polarising the county, said Borrell, is Ciudadanos' refusal to consider a coalition with the Socialists because of the latter's attempts to reason with Catalan secessionists. That's probably the only pairing that

Nobody wins

...real attempt to improve the lot of the average Spanish household - something that could not be said of economic policy under former Conservative prime minister Mariano Rajoy. Catalan secessionists' refusal to back the budget hasn't done them any ... "the Constitution in hand", as he said last summer. Sánchez went as far as he possibly could in offering compromise to the secessionists - which was way too far for many in his own party as well as for the Spanish right. But because he stopped short of

In two minds

...choice of destination that's also designed to appease the region's secessionists. Yet the tone of rhetoric this week, from both Madrid and the Catalonian capital, suggests that it will take more than a piece of economic legislation to ease the tension. ... "grievances [that] force people to choose between two identities". Hardly the words of a man prepared to cut the secessionists some slack. Sánchez's remarks followed similarly inflammatory statements made by Catalan president Quim Torra on Saturday, after
