Boris’ failure to condemn Spain a shameful dereliction of duty

by Steve Beasant on 2 October, 2017

Responding to Boris Johnson’s failure to condemn the Spanish government over police violence in Catalonia, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:Vince Cable in Twickenham

“Boris Johnson’s failure to condemn the Spanish government over this violence is a shameful dereliction of duty.

“A true ally would call out this excessive and counter-productive approach and call on the Spanish authorities to change course.

“It shows how weak this government has become that it is desperate not to upset the government of an EU country that could veto the final Brexit deal.

“Instead of this craven approach, Britain should be leading calls for a mediated settlement and European response to this crisis.

“The UK and Scottish government solved a political dispute through a peaceful referendum, the Spanish government should look to this example.”
