Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And there's a sizeable group of people in Navarra who feel that the region has it's own unique identity. In autonomous elections the PP doesn't run candidates, rather a regional conservative party the Union of Navarran People (UPN) runs in the place of the PP in Navarra. Ironically, if Madrid wanted to kill Basque nationalism the quickest way would be to incorporate Navarra into the Basque country.  That would ensure that the Basque nationalists could never gain a majority at the autonomic level, and keep the PNV out of government forever.  

Bizkaia or Viscaya, Dios mio funny you choose to use the Basque name.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
