Esquerra returns to politics
deaths from the coronavirus for the first time since February 13 and the latest
extension of the alarm state without parliamentary distress. Discrepancies in
the Popular Party on the vote on the minimum vital income. The pragmatists do
not want to make enemies among the people who have lost everything and the FAES
foundation does not want any gesture from the right to legitimize Podemos. The
epidemic seems to be under control, but political inflammation does not
subside, nor will it subside. We are better and we are worse.
Esquerra Republicana is again part of the nervous Spanish governance, a hectic hallway with many corridors, many tensions and many air streams. Supine irritation in Junts per Catalunya. The indefatigable Convergent gene, with three accelerated mutations after forty years of protein exchange with the Spanish central power, already believed to have in the bag the scary Republicans, a party that does not end up having its center of gravity well defined.
Readjustment of tactical positions after two bad weeks
for the Government
Since its foundation in 1931, Esquerra Republicana has always been a federation of ideas, interests and passions, very different, if not contradictory. Faced with each other, all the ERC fractions had their own newspaper. The federalist Joan Lluhí Vallescà, a supporter of Catalan Labor without messianism, edited L’Opinió and wanted to cut the presidential powers of Francesc Macià, who dismissed him as councilor in chap. Lluís Companys, who edited L’Humanitat, was a friend of the union men and an enemy of the separatists of Estat Català, admired by Joaquim ¬Torra. ERC was a cricket cage. That was its weakness, but also its strength, until the war broke out. A party with a majority ambition must be a good reflection of the society it aspires to represent and at the moment in Catalonia the center of gravity is not clear either. The Catalans will have to define it soon, since especially difficult times are approaching for a society in which politics has been replaced by propaganda for ten years. Brussels, Berlin and Paris will not treat with special affection the regions that play to promote entropy in a European space subject to multiple social and political tensions. There will be no fragmentation of nation states. That is one of the unwritten clauses of the European recovery plan agreed by Germans and French. Smart pro-independence people know this.
Esquerra wants to do politics. Citizens also want to do politics, to move the PSOE away from Unidas Podemos. UP will do politics not to be isolated. The PNV is doing politics in style. And the PP’s policy is the sharpest: thermal offensive on the street and in the machinery of the State to force the PSOE to ask for a winter truce. Budget in exchange for elections. Sánchez beheaded and a government of national unity with the Social Democrats in a subordinate position, as in Germany.
