Game of Thrones: PP and PSOE take over Catalonia 

Catalonia

Officials said on TVE, the government propaganda outlet, that the intention of the Government and PSOE would be to intervene Catalonia.

What does a tyrant and an oppressive regime do when someone or some people do not fall into line? They use violence, coercion and threats to take over power.

Taking over Catalonia against the will of its people is exactly what the Spanish government intends to do. In order to do that, its representatives allied themselves with Partido Popular (PP) and Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE) thugs so that all together can split the Catalan pie.

The Government of the Popular Party agreed with the PSOE on the activation of measures to intervene the autonomy of Catalonia and to lead to a call for early elections in the region in January.

The same position was heard from the mouth of the Secretary General of PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, who made it clear that their intent is to force early elections in Catalonia.

Spanish officials said in an interview with TVE, the government propaganda outlet, that the intention of the Government and PSOE would be to intervene Catalonia to put their political accomplices in power through what would be a made up election, which the government of Madrid would certainly recognize because they would be in control of everything. Elections, according to members of PP would be held in in less than 3 months.

For their part, representatives of PSOE, said that “it would be great” to avoid the call for January elections, if Puigdemont calls them on an ordinary basis.

Carmen Calvo heads the Socialist delegation that is negotiating with the Spanish Executive the concrete measures that an extraordinary Council of Ministers will approve tomorrow to apply article 155 on Catalonia. She says the intent is to return constitutional order to the region, but in reality is everything that Madrid wanted: To impose their tyrannical control over the richest region of the territory.

Senate will approve the application of 155 on October 27

The plenary session in which the Senate will approve the application of article 155 of the Constitution against Catalonia will take place next Friday, October 27, according to the proposal that the government is considering and that will debate and decide on at its meeting this Saturday.

According to Europa Press, the commission in which this subject will be discussed will finally be created for the occasion and composed of 27 senators of two other commissions: the General of Autonomous Communities and the Constitutional Commission. It will be presided over by the president of the upper house, Pío García Escudero, and will celebrate its first meeting on Monday.

The Senate’s Bureau has been called to meet this Saturday after the Council of Ministers that will decide the measures that will be applied in Catalonia. It will then officially approve the measures to be taken and the timelines.

Europe supports the Madrid Regime, but Putin does not

The main leaders of the European Union. Angela Merkel from Germany and Emmanuel Macron from France, gave their support to the “territorial integrity” of Spain and to a dialogue approach on the question of Catalonia “in the framework of the Constitution”.

Using an expression that has made a fortune in recent times, we could say that Mariano Rajoy returned to Spain empowered by Brussels.

“This will be a Council marked by a message of unity: unity around Spain and unity before the Brexit,” Macron said, equaling both issues.

“We support the position of the Spanish Government, we hope to find solutions based on the Constitution,” Merkel reiterated. There was no dissonance.

The Spanish Government had no interest in the issue of Catalonia being on the agenda and the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, accepted it.

Samples of support included that of the Prime Minister of Slovenia, Miro Cerar. “When Slovenia decided to be independent, it did so because the former common country, Yugoslavia, was beginning to decompose and was not a democratic state.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who has been closer to asking for a European mediation, made a gesture to deny the information published by two newspapers in his country, according to which he would have received pressure from the Spanish government to stop supporting the idea of ​​a European mediation. Michel rules the complicated Belgium with the support of the Flemish sovereigns, friends of Catalan sovereignty.

While that was happening in Brussels, in the Russian winter season in Sochi, Vladimir Putin threw a dart at the European Union wrapped with the flag of Catalonia.

The Russian leader accused Europe of playing with a double yardstick: express recognition of the independence of Kosovo in 2008 and the current rejection of the secession of Catalonia. The independence of Kosovo, an Albanian-majority territory that was the cradle of the Serbian nation, is a thorn in the Slavic soul.

Kosovo is currently home to the main US military base in Eastern Europe. “For some of our colleagues,” said Putin in the Valdáy political forum, “there are good fighters for freedom and there are separatists who can not defend their rights and with the help of democratic mechanisms.”
