Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yesterday I got e-mail from a friend of mine from Madrid, with a PDF "Madrid Statute" which must be circulating among PP sympathisers and making their day. Maybe I'm overreacting, but underlying it there is a mixture of imperialism, Franquism, Opus Dei, monarshism, Real Madrid fandom, homophobia, anticatalanism, racism (against african immigrants), dictatorial longing, and militarism. All very humorous, but I don't find it at all funny because of the underlying attitudes to the various jokes.

Good thing I'm "in exile".

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
