Oriol Junqueras being fattened in Osona. More pics.

Joan Ripollès Iranzo thinks Arturo (the "o" disappeared in public a decade ago) Mas may be on the way out, Elena Ribera isn't so sure.

My favourite Reverend Bacon this time round was Oriol Junqueras, whose resemblance to a mad pig conceals the fact that he is a cunning one. I loved his recycling of ERC's boom years appeal to the masses to a bust slogan with vaguer accountability by the simple addition of one letter: "un nou pis per a tothom," a new apartment for everyone, might have been viewed as slightly irresponsible by fascist centralists like Graham, who wouldn't have internet if it weren't for our taxes, and so we were promised "un nou país per a tothom," a new country for everyone. Can I have Moldavia?

(Maybe someone can explain to me why the bottom half of the CUP posters was printed upside-down. An appeal to the down-trodden masses, or gutter politics?)
