Spanish Police Say Tweety Sucks And So Does The Food
One odd story today in the midst of all the news about the Spanish takeover of the Catalan government that is about to happen on Saturday. Before the 1 October referendum, Madrid sent 12,000 paramilitary police to make sure the referendum did not happen. These 12,000 agents were unable to find a single voting box but they did find a few million paper ballots. They were supposed to keep the citizens from voting, but in spite of beating up over 1000 unarmed voters, over 2,300,000 voters managed to slip in between the armed thugs and cast their ballots.
These official thugs are housed in three ships -- one of which lacks the dignity that official thugs should receive because of the cartoons of Tweety and friends painted on its sides. The police are still being housed there, more than a month after they've arrived. And they have now complained to the Spanish Minister of Security that they don't like their accommodation. The food stinks. The housing is unacceptable. And the worst of it all, they've found out that they get paid less than the Catalan police do. Holy Mother of God! They are pissed off and threaten to take action if something is not done. I wonder that that action might be. Maybe they'll chuck it in and go home?
