“The Economist” dedicates an editorial to Spain, in which he advices the Spanish government to “release Catalan prioners” and to “review its system of decentralisation, recognising the diversity” of its country.

In it, they criticize the role of Mr Rajoy on his way to find a solution to the conflict with Catalonia saying: “Mr Rajoy never found a balance of firmness, understanding and proportionality” and “Spain’s judiciary, independent but often bovine, has made things worse”. Moreover, they think that charging Carles Puigdemont and all his government with rebellion,under a law aimed at stopping military coups, was self-defeating”.
