Frankly what the new Spanish government is doing is profoundly unhelpful. The country should be healing from the wounds of the Civil War, yet the Catalonia episode shows you how raw they really are.

I expect Henri VII, on the other hand, will refrain from comment. I am a little surprised that Don Luis Alfonso should so draw attention to his family connection with the detested (and detestable) regime of his great-grandfather, but I suppose it is admirable in a way that he is not afraid to do so. Compared to the Lenin mausoleum and the various statues and monuments to Princip I don't see Franco's grandiose resting place as a special cause of offence, ghastly as the man and his regime were, and I agree with you that it would have been better to just leave things alone and not risk inciting more division in a country already divided enough.
