Editorial:

There’s some doubt over whether Otto von Bismark said this (but, after all, somebody did): ‘Spain is the strongest country in the world. Century after century trying to destroy itself and still without success. When it stops trying it will once again be a world leader.' Sometimes this news-letter, Business over Tapas, appears to feature material which suggests that Spain is indeed endlessly trying to shoot itself in the foot.

Today, Thursday, is Election Day in Catalonia. Three parties support independence, balanced evenly against three who are ‘Constitutionalists’. In the middle lies the seventh: En Comú Podem. Who will win and what will happen? Keep an eye on Lenox’ blog Spanish Shilling for the results here.

Editorial:

Many of the subjects close to British expatriate interests have been discussed in the Brexit talks.

Don’t worry’, says the ambassador benignly, ‘everything will be all right’.

Christmas is looming with bunting in the windows. Paper Santas are climbing the walls (as indeed are many parents), there are coloured lights in every shopping street while sickly children’s voices singing villancicos can be heard through the piped music across the plazas and malls. Spend spend spend. Shopping is so fierce in Madrid, they’ve made a couple of pedestrian streets one way!

And there’s still another ten days to go.

Editorial:

There’s a decidedly odd election coming up, on a Thursday, just four days before Christmas, between seven parties, of which one is led by a man in exile in Belgium and another by a man in prison in Madrid. Three of the parties are for an independent republic; three evenly balanced against them are the ‘constitutionalist’ parties (with Ciudadanos leading the pack), and there’s the odd-one out – the local version of Podemos, which, as The Local says here, ‘...the likely kingmaker according to the polls will be En Comu, the alliance made up by far-left party Podemos and Barcelona mayor Ada Colau, which according to the CIS poll would capture nine seats. The party opposes independence but backs a legally binding referendum on secession which Spain's central government deems unconstitutional...’.

Editorial:

Like all news-services, the Business over Tapas editors tend to choose items that they consider of general interest and avoid those that aren’t. While we try not to have a political agenda, it’s perhaps inevitable that there is one, as might be seen from the items below. We do of course try to be impartial, sourcing many different newspapers, news-sites, agencies and blogs, and we also avoid sucesos (news events of passing interest). Our aim is to provide news about Spain of interest to property owners and investors.

Editorial:

It must be horrible to be in prison. The Norwegian ones – where the repentant murderer plays his guitar, cooks his own meals and has a terrace to his room notwithstanding. We should also excise the Dutch ones which are closing down, through a general lack of prisoners to fill them. The American ones – which we have seen often enough on the TV or in films – are more like it: usually with Morgan Freeman or that Tom Cruise fellow banged up for life. Nasty guards, murders and people pumping iron.

Opinion:

 

 

 

Fiddling around with the computer and the Internet and the blogs and the rest of it – changing the printer ink and re-booting the router. How do we do it? Each morning I get up, check the news and the different pages I visit to find contrast for the Business over Tapas reports, and make myself a coffee. But on Wednesday morning, a simple cup of Nescafé just wasn’t enough. Firefox – the browser I use – had suddenly changed its whole design, with wonderful new features that I will never need, and the few things I do use cunningly hidden in interesting places. It was a bit like receiving an early Advent Calendar. And what is behind this door?

Statement on Catalonia

We are all concerned about the crisis in Catalonia. Ireland respects the constitutional and territorial integrity of Spain and we do not accept or recognise the Catalan Unilateral Declaration of Independence.

The resolution of the current crisis needs to be within Spain's constitutional framework and through Spain's democratic institutions. Ireland supports efforts to resolve this crisis through lawful and peaceful means.

Catalonia and Ireland

A mural espousing ties between Catalonia and Ireland in Belfast.

In the aftermath of the putative independence referendum in Catalonia, on October 1, 2017, John Dorney looks at some of the parallels between that region’s (or is it a nation?)’s history and that of Ireland.

Ireland’s struggle for independence was, and to a degree is, keenly observed by other small nationalities with ambitions for statehood.
