Spain 2

Demonstrations in 50 cities in Spain on June 7th saw demands for a referendum on the monarchy.

This follows the abdication of King Juan Carlos in favour of his son Felipe, to try to restore the battered reputation of the monarchy. This  followed several corruption scandals and the austerity imposed by the Spanish government who wanted to use public money to save the speculative bankrupt Spanish banks. The king’s son-in-law and his companies are the focus of a fraud investigation involving millions in public money. The governing right-wing Popular party and the centrist Socialist opposition party are overwhelmingly in favour of keeping the monarchy. People shouted ‘Dear Felipe, no one has chosen you’ and ‘Referendum now!’

@theworkerorguk Here is the Labour party election leaflet from the 1979 June EEC election. The very first one. I knew the candidate in passing who advised me in 1982 when I was just 18 the sooner we are out the EEC the better. 34 years later I voted Leave
