Have they lost their nerve?

"There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures."

Apparently a last minute change driven by an offer of international mediation. Big disappointment for CUP, lots of speculation about what's going on behind the scenes. http://www.lavanguardia.com/politica/20 ... encia.html.

What next? Lock up the Catalan parliament?

Just as I expected. Lloyd George did something similar in 1919.
Will they now dissolve the Catalan parliament?

It follows the National Court's decision this week to keep Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez behind bars pending investigations into sedition charges.
The Spanish government has demanded that Catalonia renounce a symbolic declaration of independence, setting it on a political collision course with Madrid later this week.

And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning: My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride, From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
