Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think ManFromMiddletown may be thinking of the formation of People's Front governments in Spain and France as the operative 1930s analogy here. That is, of cource, if the Catalan nationalist parties decide to band together into a single list to try and make the next regional election into a referendum on independence (the rest of the Calatan parties will not bad together into an anti-independence front, and so their vote will be diluted by the imperfect proportionality of the election system).

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
