Spanish government both stupid and ridiculous!
Frank Pio Russo – December 21, 2017.
Presumably the leader of Catalonia was guilty of treason, and was imprisoned for pursuing a path towards independence for his region. But now that elections are on the card, he’s apparently been allowed to become the leader of a pro-independence party whilst still in jail!
This is both stupid and ridiculous! Over here in Australia, if you’re convicted for a year or more of jail: you’re automatically disqualified. Not only does it make no sense to have a convicted felon running for political office, but it’s ridiculous to have an illegal party running for a disavowed path of independence.
Of course it goes without saying that the Spanish government is both stupid and ridiculous for having allowed this issue to fester for a long time: it should have been nipped in the bud a long time ago!
