 Nationalism: the Catalan debate
It may be that some short sighted spin doctor from the Generalitat or CiU advised Pujol and Mas to allow this sort of argument to pass without explicitly rejecting it, in the hope that it might bring in the votes of that wide sector of the population who hold similar views.
Artur Mas: Economic spokesperson for the party, Artur Mas has already been nominated as the successor to Pujol as the leader of "Convergencia".
At the centre of this argument lies the intractable issue of realising solidarity between cultures within a state framework, which is itself permeated by nationalism, and where the allocation of resources for the sustenance and development of cultures and identities is a politically charged affair.

 News from Spain: Politics in Spain
Even though the general opinion regarding the new legislation seems to be more or less favourable, the extent to which the law restricts smoking in all places of work, public places and restricts the right of newsagents and unlicensed shops to sell tobacco has inevitably been criticised by pro-smoking groups and trade unions.
Apparantly it was Artur Mas himself who spilt the beans when he told colleagues in surprise that they had "smoked all afternoon" in the Moncloa (headquarters of the Spanish presidency and home to the President and his family) despite new the anti-tobacco restrictions.
The PP have jumped on this latest apparant blunder of the Spanish president and have promised to put a number of questions to the government in a parliamentary session in the near future.
