Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps I'm underestimating the explosiveness of the nationalism issue, because I tend to see it as a lot of empty posturing (there being no constitutional route to independance)
Precisely because there is no constitutional route to independence the nationalistm issue is so explosive. There is no middle ground and if the "centre" shifts towards independence there are no constitutional solutions.

As well-respected constitutional scholar Javier Pérez Royo noted already years ago, there is no legal solution to the current impasse, but a political solution because only through politics can the constitutional contradiction be resolved. But statesmanship is notoriously absent here.

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
