    I have just come back from Seville. The number of Spanish flags flying from balconies is quite remarkable. Many still bearing the creases from when they were packed. It would seem that Andalucía favours unity.

    It's rather pleasing that the Supreme Court has withdrawn the EWA for Carles Puigdemont

    - and four others.
    Perhaps they should release the other 2 political prisoners whilst they are having second thoughts.

    El País are now talking up that the constitutional parties will get more votes in the election, although further down the page it says the secessionists will win more seats.
    So it will be a "Hillary" type victory for the constitutional parties, i.e. they lose.
    El País are also talking up the involvement of the government in restricting and countering comments by "Russian bots" on social media.
    I can't believe how partisan this newspaper is.

    Election day today. We wait with bated breath to see how the pro Madrid and pro independence parties do and what Madrid's reaction will be.
    Hopefully there won't be any voters beaten up by the police today.
