The Midcat gas pipeline is a 3000 million euro FRAUD says EU Report!

Finally the truth comes out, it never made sense, except as a way to get EU construction funds and fat commissions for Spanish politicians funds. Why would ‘Europe’ import gas to Spain and then pump it to France when they can get it cheaper through many underused local facilities? How would ‘Europe’ get cheap Algerian gas by pipelines which only have the capacity for half the Iberian market? We’ve been saying this for years, but now a report commissioned by the EU has said it… Does this mean the second half of Midcat will never be built?

Why destroy the country for a Pipeline which ‘will never carry gas’?

Exclusive: Viability of French-Spain gas pipeline questioned – report

/article/us-france-spain-gas-by Geert De Clercq – A report prepared for the European Commission has questioned the economic viability of plans to build a huge gas pipeline between Spain and France designed to boost security of supply in Europe, five sources told Reuters.

The Commission has long backed the 3 billion euro ($3.7 billion) Midi-Catalonia (Midcat) pipeline that would more than double the amount of gas that can be piped across the Pyrenees mountains that border the two nations.

9-N. Will Spanish forces attack Catalan ‘referendum’?


Its the moment of truth for the 9N Catalan ‘referendum’, now called the ‘consultation’.
The far-right Spanish government are playing the ”fascist card”, whipping up a dangerous frenzy of false nationalism to escape the avalanche of corruption cases being revealed daily against their top members.
WILL THEY USE MILTARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s POLLING STATIONS?
WILL THEY USE MILITARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s OF POLLING STATIONS?
The right-wing ”Spanish Constitutional Court” is about to ban it for the 2nd time (on orders from their political paymasters).    
Will  the Catalan government obey and order their own Catalan police, the Mossos, to attack the 40,000 volunteers who are all organized down to the the last detail and ready to go next Sunday?
If not will the corrupt and inept far Spanish PP government carry out its threat to arrest and jail the Catalan leaders, as happened so many times under the fascist dictatorship? Their direct predecessors even executed one legally elected Catalan president, LluisCompanys, along with tens of thousands of Catalan republicans, and banned the Catalan language from schools for 40 years, etc.

The Burning Fuse: How Long Before It All Explodes?

Last week the Spanish authorities backed down rapidly as a violent neighbourhood campaign against yuppification  suddenly spread across the State. Suddenly popular resistance is on the menu with the hitherto pacifist  15M movement calling dozens of demos. Now there is a lull with hopes that many cities will take up their greievances and fight the coming police state legislation , here and across Europe.

      Spain is home to almost one third of the Euro regions unemployed, with an unemployment rate of over 25% and it has been at that for six quarters in a row. That’s a lot of misery, poverty and deprivation, while the financial Mafia keep screwing the people and muttering about adjustments and growth.
