Spain's deputy PM on tv with scheduled speech 16 Oct
- Catalan leader has not replied to govt
- govt response on Catalonia is widely backed in Spanish parliament
- question to Puigdemont is not hard to answer
- he has the power to avert next steps by Spanish govt
- Catalan govt still has opportunity to rectify
- any dialogue must be held within the law
So the deadline is extended but Spanish govt seemingly in front-foot mode.
Earlier I reported Puigdemont's letter in which he failed to clarify the independence position.
EUR pairs a tad lower again.
Puigdemont - Still not answering the simple question. Have they or haven't they ?
