Post 1 is what I meant. You admitted you're not sure why Andorra is involved.
nowhere was it suggested by anyone, not even Parish, that any funds were/are being sent to Andorra. You either just jumped to that conclusion or made it up for some reason. Either way it's nonsense.As above. Interreg is the EU's European Territorial Cooperation instrument, non-EU countries can participate at their own cost and many do because it makes sense for them to do so. Norway and Switzerland for example. I can't be bothered to do research into what Andorra may be participating in but given it's size, location and links with the EU it doesn't seem implausible that they wouldn't be involved.
The Santer commission ended in 1999, we're five commissioners from him now.Post 1 quotes a source on the role of the consultancy in drawing up a paper on centralising powers from Catalonia to Madrid, and how this group was working for the Santer Commission.
I any event, you're talking bollox - the article states:
The Spanish Ministry commissioned the report in question. The shadowy (oooh) Daleph group were only one of the authors. He doesn't even link to the report!Daleph is one of the authors of the 2013 Spanish Ministry of the Economy report, advocating reform of Catalan public institutions to return the authority of Catalan regional auton-omous institutions to Madrid.
He's also talking bollox there too, to wit:
In the 90s Spain had a Ministry of Economy and Finance, as the name suggests it has a very well defined and clear role beyond simply administering some EU finding. It became the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness in early 2000, and some functions were moved to the Ministry of the Treasury and Public Function.It is not clear that the Spanish Ministry of Economy has any other functions of substance.
So sunshine, it's just shít you and he have made up.Of course, some of my conclusions are based on a hunch rather than evidence.
Except it's not. If anything it appears that Spanish authorities may have been misusing EU funds.But the evidence is quite clear that the EU was meddling in the Catalan question
No, it doesn't. Even this Parish chap in his píss poor hint-hint nudge-nudge article doesn't suggest or allude to that.and that Andorra seems to have been involved.
