Brexit and parliamentary democracy in the UK

22/10/2019. A broad analysis of Brexit should include three interconnected dimensions: a crisis of a legal-constitutional nature, a crisis of parties and political representativeness, and a third socio-economic dimension. Thus, the British are facing a process of constitutional readjustment that aligns their institutions with a different political, economic and cultural reality; and they are doing so in an intense debate, exposed to the light and inelegant.

The ‘kale borroka’ in Catalonia

In Catalonia there is a routine 'kale borroka' that is perceived in the propaganda of the independentist media, the psychological pressures, the insults, the yellow ties, the tweets, the whatsapp messages; the torchlight processions that recall the supremacist movements. And what does the 'revolución de las sonrisas' say in? Some keep quiet. Others show exquisite prudence.
