Where’s Jon Snow when Spain needs him?
Sketch from Girona last night
It was a rare public attack on the Spanish monarch but King Felipe himself, symbol of national unity, seldom addresses the country on TV, and President Puigdemont had to respond.
At the bar, they clapped respectfully afterwards, happy with their Catalan leader and his call for mediation, and then they joked about the Game of Thrones TV series.
“We need a king like Jon Snow who tries to keep his lands together and is with the people,” said one woman, laughing. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, by common agreement, was the Night King, wishing eternal winter on Catalonia.
“I want a Spain that cares for all its cultures,” she added more seriously. “Why not love them all? We don’t understand the speech of Felipe VI.”
