Political reaction in the Balearics yesterday to events in Catalonia on Sunday was much as might have been expected. Més, the most powerful voice in favour of independence, insisted that Mariano Rajoy should resign as he no longer had any legitimacy. "People went onto the streets to defend democracy, freedom and civil rights," said party co-spokesperson David Abril. "We do not accept lessons in democracy from either the Partido Popular or Ciudadanos." Més are calling for PSOE to stop supporting a "dictatorial" union in Congress between the PP and the C's. They also want a motion of censure in Congress against the national government and Rajoy.
