It's like they brought him from the 1930s with a time machine.  :lol:

YOu pretty much have to be a time traveler from the 1930s to be a socialist in this day and age. :contract:

Yet he's the conservative candidate.  :contract:

If you were a Catalan you'd be a die-hard voter of his party no matter what.

In my younger days, probably.

Not terribly interested in independence movements now though.

Mr Torra's first name is Quim  :hmm:

I wonder if he has ever holidayed in England and wondered what all the chuckling was about?

Nobody but the English holiday in England  :(

It's actually a relatively common name down here, I guess hundreds of Catalan Quims wonder why Englishmen are so jocular while visiting London every year.

To be fair, even the English avoid holidays in England, if possible.

London is a very popular tourist destination. The rest of England... not so much.

I've spent around a month in England throughout several trips, and the only thing I've seen outside London is Stonehenge.

Well more's the pity for both of you. There are a lot of cool things to see in England and the UK.
