Blogging from the Murcia region of Spain until early June, when I return to
the Highlands of Scotland for a few months

Legislating on chewing gum whilst [the Treaty of] Rome burns!

That's how it appears, at any rate. The Spanish political agenda Friday was dominated by debate on legislation about chewing gum, all this whilst the Euro is going through what might be politely termed a 'crisis', Spain's own stockmarket is 'bombing' and in the wider world there has been a dramatic heightening of tensions in the Korean peninsula.

It's all a question of priorities, I suppose - or perhaps it's just to divert the attention of 'the masses' from the growing economic peril facing the country.
