The highest positions of the Mossos affirm that they do not feel supported by the one who should be their commander in chief, the president of the Generalitat. Those same Catalan police chiefs believe that changing Minister Miquel Buch would be “a disaster”. They recognize Buch to be by their side, respect their work and show his face for them in such difficult times. Something that has not done the tenant of the Generalitat.
Quim Torra has become a Pirandellian character in search of an author. He would like to write the story, even if he doesn’t have good lyrics. The occurrence of wanting to repeat a new referendum in this legislature or its declarations on TV3 in which he insisted that he took up his position to implant the republic, are a reverie or a tease. On Wednesday he left quickly and running from a coordination meeting at the Palau because he had to join the march on Barcelona. The activist`s won the ruler’s hand again.
For Torra, the country’s governance is more a nuisance than an obligation. Barcelona burns on all four sides and, finally, when he speaks as president, he only thinks about asking for a meeting with Pedro Sánchez, criticizing the National Police and letting go of the bravado that he will reach as far as the people of Catalonia want. Well, before calling the president of the Government, he should explain to the Catalans what he intends at this time, about police actions he would have to be cautious when an agent is torn between life and death, and as for the people of Catalonia, he cannot forget that It is more plural than his own family. It is expected of a president of the Generalitat to warn his citizens that there is no acceptable violence, highlight the seriousness of the events that are happening and make a call to calm to the responsible pro-independence segments.
Torra has never believed in the position he holds. After a week of ‘kale borroka’ in Barcelona, with millionaire damages and serious material and physical damage in the heart of the city, a responsible politician cannot look to the other side. An important part of the Catalans feel orphans of governance, political pragmatism and intellectual sense. Maybe, president, after looking for the momentum of history, yours has arrived. The momentum for you to go home.
