There is an impression that the PSOE has fallen under the influence of the reactionary fiction that it is stuck with Puigdemont’s demands. Act as it is. Public opinion can manifest and distort perception to the point of making those involved act against the truth when it is possible to see with perspective. It is not true; it is the opposite. Puigdemont is trapped by Pedro Sánchez, and it is time to inform him of his position of extreme weakness and confidence.
Puigdemont is holding one hand on the edge of the abyss, and the hand that supports him and can bring him back home is Pedro Sánchez and the correlation of forces that emerge in the elections of July 23. If Pedro Sánchez leaves Moncloa, there will be no hand to support him, and he will fall over the cliff in Brussels, forever losing the last possibility to return to Catalonia. The situation is not looked at correctly; the prisoner is not Sánchez; he has exits, options, and different escape routes; the only one tied to this parliamentary majority is Carles Puigdemont; and maybe it is necessary to remind him.
It is true that the PSOE was in a very precarious situation before the investiture took place; at that time, when it was agreed to implement the Amnesty Law, the PSOE was subject to the demands of Junts, but now, before Pedro Sánchez was in Moncloa, the PSOE should express his position in power because if Puigdemont wants to meet his friend Rahola again in his mansion in Cadaqués and bathe in his pool in the moonlight in the summer, the Amnesty Law is already needed. Pedro Sánchez is already in Moncloa. Puigdemont needs Pedro Sánchez if he wants to go home. This is Carles Puigdemont, who is now under the will of the PSOE until the amnesty law is approved and effective. Because if Pedro Sánchez is forced to call an election because Puigdemont does not know how to measure his strength, he will be left forever unable to set foot in his beloved Catalonia again.
Puigdemont is as strong as Pedro Sánchez. Without the PSOE in government, Junts has absolutely nothing to offer or take; the entire correlation of forces that allows Puigdemont to play a game that favors them will disappear one day if they do not take care of the presence of the President. of the Government of Moncloa. If the PSOE knows that the Junts have power only with them in the government, the logic says that the Junts should do everything possible so that the parliamentary status quo continues in the same way and therefore more demands of nationalists. want amnesty. First of all, they either approve the budgets or there is no amnesty. The PSOE can always manage by expanding its budgets until it finds the right moment to call elections, but the Junts can’t do anything without the PSOE to get Puigdemont to walk through Girona’s old town.
If there are elections at the end of the year, it is very unlikely that the correlation of forces resulting in an electoral result will replicate the current one and once again put the Junts on top of a merger of partners needed for the PSOE, which is aggravated. by the certain possibility that those who not only do not want to approve an amnesty but who also want to chase them, ban them, and throw them into the well of the forgotten who won the election. It is not true that the biggest loser will be PSOE if the government does not survive in the end; it will be Junts, who will lose his golden card in the game of Congress support. It is difficult to assess what the impact of the election will be on bringing down a government that is ready to approve an amnesty law in favor of more than 400 people because they fear that an unfavorable judicial resolution will not include Carles Puigdemont among the beneficiaries. Surely the person who will not be harmed for not giving a personal demand of such magnitude is the PSOE, because it will destroy the whole reactionary narrative that Pedro Sánchez is ready to give anything to become president. .
Junts and Carles Puigdemont do not understand responsibility or collective good; they do not care about the well-being of the popular classes in Spain or Catalonia. They are a group of privileged bourgeois who gamble with the lives of millions to liberate a people who do not want to be freed and whom they use as cannon fodder for their megalomaniacal dreams. The law of amnesty has no sympathy for those who defend it for utilitarian reasons. With such light anchors, the moment may come soon when the ropes that support it will break, and those who remain silent out of responsibility or other dynamics will begin to ask Pedro Sánchez to give a drug of humility to Puigdemont and show him to be in a position of extreme weakness. The religious state can be suppressed again with a slight change in the wind and a simple change in the parliamentary majority. Don’t forget it, Carles.
