Re: Letizia, the "man" in the couple
I think you are very unfair to the King, who is naturally quite shy but has a very clear vision of the future of the monarchy. He is a constitutional monarch and has sworn tom respect the constitution. The Catalan nationalists who primarily come from rural Catalonia, have no right at all to force the break-up of Spain. 90% of Catalonians voted for the 1978 Constitution and until 2007 those demanding independence were no more than 15% of the voting electorate. But the financial crisis changed everything and it was fear of the financial corruption at the heart of the Generalitat that encouraged those who had not previously called for independence to do so, to disguise their own responsibility and conceal the corruption. The fact is that the nationalists blatantly broke the law, occupied public buildings and had illegal ballots printed (most of the, BTW, by a company owned by a French Catalan nationalists in Perpignan, which the French Catalans would like to incorporate into this fantasy Catalan state), and then deliberately put the elderly and young where they would be the first to confront the security forces. The police were tougher than they probably needed to be (but then by the standards of the French CRS they were positively restrained) but it would have been entirely inappropriate for the King as head of state to have criticised the national police. Would anyone seriously have expected the king, as a constitutional head of state, to have criticised the government?
