BARCELONA, Spain (PNN) - October 9, 2017 - In a quite shocking escalation of the rhetoric in Spain, Pablo Casado, a spokesman for the ruling People's Party, just issued a veiled death threat to the President of Catalonia.

"Let's hope that nothing is declared tomorrow because perhaps the person who makes the declaration will end up like the person who made the declaration 83 years ago."

Seems about as clear as it gets from Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's PP to Catalan President Carles Puigdemont; call for Independence and Die.

That does not seem to be the reconciliatory tone for which the market has been hoping.

Republican Catalan Left MP Joan Tardà tweeted, "Yes, Pablo Casado, we know how our President Lluis Companys ended up shot by the army. Does it make you happy to remind our defenseless people of it?"

Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias tweeted, "Casado says Puigdemont might end up like Companys, who was tortured and shot. Either he is ignorant or irresponsibly provocative."

Iñigo Errejón called on Casado to "rectify immediately or resign. They are arsonists.”
