SPAIN’S conservative People’s Party (PP) has been ridiculed after the
leader of its group in the European Parliament wrote to fellow MEPs
urging them to boycott a talk there by the Catalan president on the
state’s “illegal” independence referendum.
Esteban González Pons,
the PP leader in Brussels, wrote to his party colleagues calling for
them to ignore the Brussels event – at which Carles Puigdemont is
expected to defend the Catalan indyref, despite Spain’s Supreme Court
declaring it illegal.
