Dear Log,

«Several Socialist politicians walked out of a ceremony in which General Alfonso Pardo de Santayana said: "At a time when some people believe that the unity of Spain is in danger, I propose a toast to the king, the head of state and the army as guarantors of that unity."

The government has been highly sensitive about military criticism of the autonomy charter after another general, José Mena, suggested that the military could act if the charter presented a threat to the "unity" of Spain. Gen Mena was sacked. Gen Pardo de Santayana apologised for his words yesterday, claiming that they had been misunderstood.»

WE WILL OBLITERATE YOU WITH OUR CRUSHING EMBRACE OF ANGRY NATIONAL UNITY! WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP HEY WHY ARE YOU GUYS RUNNING AWAY?

Interesting footnote: the vote was 74% for Catalan autonomy, but the voter turnout was an oddly low 49%. Still, that's enough!
