Will Rajoy confront Quim Torra?

After the investiture speech of Quim Torra, already President of the Catalan Government, and Rajoy’s reactions, it would not be crazy for betting shops to offer the possibility of betting on his future political actions. Asking whether Rajoy will confront Quim Torra would cause debate, although it is not a question that allows a clear answer, because, what does it mean to confront? Anyway, if that was the question, mi clear bet would be NO. Rajoy will not confront Quim Torra.

 

What has Quim Torra said? That the one he recognizes as true president of Catalonia is the fugitive Puigdemont and that he promises to build the Catalan Republic and draw up its constitution. What can be the predictable reaction of Rajoy’s Government? Let us remember that he had previously been submissive facing something that seems absurd, such as having allowed two fugitives from justice voting by delegation in the investiture of the future president of the Catalan Government, without proceeding to any appeal that, just by mere common sense, would have prospered. How can we then be surprised by this type of actions motivating the German judges not to grant Puigdemont’s extradition? It is not enough to convince them with the excellent report judge Llarena has sent to them on the conclusive signs of the criminal facts. They might think they would be sending the fugitive back to a joke country, a country that is not serious, a country where anything can happen. Because, what can one expect from a country that does not seem to know how to be firm with a key element of the entire country, its own unity? Which, by the way, is guaranteed in the rest of continental European constitutions.

 

If the bet, trying to be more specific with the question, considered, not whether President Rajoy will confront Quim Torra, but whether he will stop him and his entire separatist team, my answer would again be clear: NO. Even though it is said that the government has warned Torra about the consequences of his confrontational attitude, and about the immediate reaction: a second edition of the 155, harder than the current one. It is said that Rajoy admits what he has seen, heard and read about the new president; he does not like him, but he will wait to know about his actions and not only about his words, a praiseworthy caution, by the pro-independence campaigners, because that caution was already proved to be a fiasco when Rajoy had it facing 1 October and affirmed that the referendum was not taking place. It will go down in history.

 

This time, Rajoy seems to have the support of PSOE and Cs, the same ones that before 1O advised him against applying the 155, but all’s well that ends well and if they are really going to rectify and support a 155 this time, things can be very different. But, will this happen? Torra will probably be trembling and thinking, worst-case scenario, I will get paid as fugitive former Catalan president, but in the meantime I will open the “embassies” and create the institutions and shady companies necessary to get my people a job and to move forward with the procés. I am not afraid of the Government of Rajoy, because it will be busy, speculating whether there has been corruption of justice and misappropriation of public funds in everything we have done until now.

 

What is the conclusion of all this? I do not see other than raising our hands to our heads and saying, oh my God, we live in a country with a joke Government that can, with its passivity, takes us to a disaster. We live in a country with a Government that has not sense of State, despite all the flags hanging from balconies. Spain does not deserve Rajoy. He will be worse than Zapatero. Go away, Mr. President, call general elections and go. It will be the best thing you can do for Spain and for yourself.

 

Visca Espanya and long live Catalonia!
