Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Spain Report: Spain Preparing To Suspend Regional Government In Catalonia As Mas Insists Indy Vote Will Be Held (September 16th, 2014)
"There are lines that cannot be crossed", said Mr. García Margallo during a breakfast meeting with journalists: "The government will use all of the means at its disposal to prevent a secessionist referendum. The law, and only the law".

Asked if those measures included suspending regional government, the Foreign Minister replied: "It includes everything that needs to be included to prevent it".

"Within the framework of the Constitution and the rule of law, everything is possible; but outside of the framework of the Constitution and the rule of law, nothing is possible."

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
