Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Spain is in backlash mode, after the insane attempt to declare Catalan independence unilaterally. The net result has been a knee-jerk nationalist reaction from voters, resulting in the electoral breakthrough of the extreme right, and a legitimist reaction on the left, with the PSOE, under suspicion of being hostage to the various regionalisms, playing the centralist card... and winning. I see parallels with Labour and Brexit in the UK, somewhat hostage to their electorate.
