Let's look at this.

So far, if any reasonably intelligent person on the BBS - for example my mate El Aguila - was to write a checklist of 10 things that the Spanish government SHOULD NOT do (or shouldn't have done in the last week or so), how many of them have the idiots actually gone and done.

A completely separate issue, but one that shows how out of touch governments are with their populaces. In Chile we have had two years of protests against the AFP pension scheme that Pinochet set up. At least two million person marches with the banner NO + AFP = no more of this pension scheme, change the system etc..

After months of debate and think tanks the government have decided to keep the AFP system and just tell people to pay 5% more into it. Their solution to NO+AFP is +AFP.

WTF?

Are all politicians the world over really this stupid and out of touch? I think the answer is yes.

What's your instinct on this: right move or escalation?
Certainly has saved Puigdemont a huge embarrassment. It was at the behest of the Catalan socialist party - is it possible that the socialists were acting to save Puigdemont and Junqueras from humiliation?

Maybe there is a huge political generation gap opening up.

Interesting. My big fear is Rajoy will try to boost his position by extracting blood but hopefully there's enough people to moderate that.

Indeed. Trump, close Scottish vote, Brexit, France, Germany, Catalans and I am sure many others.

No. Bit slow on getting Spanish news. Will be at a festival too so may be slow in catching up on the day.
