Prensa The independentist fiction in Catalonia

The only fault resides in a Catalan independentism that is featured by the institutional and constitutional disloyalty, as well as by the systematic incompliance with the democratic lawfulness. And the ones who are in jail are there ─the justice will have the last say─ as a consequence of their faulty acts. Illegal and antidemocratic.

Prensa Sisyphus Right-wing

Neither options are exchangeable, nor does it make no difference to vote for one or the other, simply because fragmentation does not add up and will not add up. If we continue in this situation, let no one be deceived because the same thing will happen.

Presented in the congress last March, the proposal was vetoed by the Partido Popular government, claiming that it would mean an increase in spending. However, it seems that the new socialist government could bring it back. We replicate, with an editing, the most significant parts of that conversation.

Prensa Memory and forgetfulness of reconcilitian

The PSOE's proposal of law to amend the so-called' “Ley de memoria histórica” is his ace up their sleeves that the Socialists are saving to respond to the intentions of Podemos in their quest to snatch the 'anti-Franco' flag from them. The journalist Pedro Corral, a PP councilor in Madrid, describes the proposal as "absolutely shattering", and argues in these FAES Papers that it is "the last burden to sweep away the constitutional system".

Prensa The Statute of Catalonia: Equally Unconstitutional, But More Confusing
