Spain Sentences Catalonian Politicians For ‘Rebellion’

A fortnight ago, British Remainers were claiming Boris adding four days onto parliament’s conference recess was akin to a dictatorship. Guido has been surprised to see total silence from those same people over an EU State Government using the EU Arrest Warrant to pursue Catalonian separatists for holding a referendum against the wishes of the central Spanish government. The draconian sentences and have sparked riots in Spain:

  • Former Catalan Vice President Oriol Junqueras – convicted of sedition and misuse of public funds. Sentenced to 13 years in prison.
  • Former Catalan Foreign Minister Raül Romeva. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 12 years in prison.
  • Former Catalan Labour Minister Dolors Bassa. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 12 years in prison.
  • Former Catalan Regional Government Spokesman Jordi Turull. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 12 years in prison.
  • Former President of the Catalan Parliament Carme Forcadell (pictured above with her British opposite number). Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 11 and a half years in prison.
  • Former Catalan Interior Minister Joaquim Forn. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 10 and a half years in prison.
  • Former Catalan Territorial Minister Josep Rull. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to 10 and a half years in prison.
  • Pro-Catalan Independence Activist Jordi Cuixart. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to nine years in prison.
  • Pro-Catalan Independence Activist Jordi Sànchez. Convicted of sedition. Sentenced to nine years in prison.

Remainers’ hysteria quickly turning to silence is deafening…

So Spain, What About Ceuta?

The Spanish have long argued – years before the referendum – that Gibraltar existing as a British enclave means the “disruption of national unity and territorial integrity” of Spain, and that it hurts the Spanish economy. There is just one question Theresa May and Boris Johnson need ask their Spanish counterparts: what about Ceuta? Ceuta (and another city, Melilla) are two low tax Spanish enclaves on the northern coast of Morocco. They are the EU’s only land border with Africa. Morocco want them back, but the two enclaves are autonomous, have their own governments, and return deputies and senators to the Spanish parliament in Madrid. Well, Spain, do Ceuta and Melilla disrupt the economy, national unity and territorial integrity of Morocco? 

Miriam: “Two Sides” to Gibraltar

Miriam Clegg, who is being used increasingly by TV producers as an ‘expert’ pro-Remain talking head, made some revealing comments on Gibraltar on Mair this morning. She reckons there are “two sides” to the dispute and defended Spain’s apparently “conciliatory tone”. Brave tactic for the wife of Britain’s chief zombie Remainer. The only “two sides” are the right one and the wrong one…

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
