Politics is just a game

I have been watching quite a few episodes of Game of Thrones of late. The world of Dragons, the Undead, the King of Fire, is so strange and so far from ours. And yet, the President of Kinglanding is making a pact with the King of the East to get to the iron throne.

And in the South Pudgemont is making is people crazy with the idea they can get independent and after the independence nothing will change, except that the Catalonians will be an independent republic.And if that plan, that riot doesn't go as planned, they flee to other country and:

Former Catalan regional President Carles Puigdemont was in a “discreet and secure place” in Brussels on Monday, the same day that Spain’s attorney general filed charges against him for rebellion, Catalan government sources told local broadcaster TV3.

In the Game of Thrones people flee all the time but usually they do not make it to the end of the season. It leads always to violence amongst their loyal supporters. With a "president" in exile "to speak freely" the chances are that his supporters will support him with the violence that comes from impotence. 

And the people of the Seven Kingdoms, they have to stand there and watch how the politicians play their game of power.

  2. I can't see the situation in Catalan ending happily.
    We're GoT fans here and most situations on the series are resolved quickly and brutally. Let's hope it doesn't happen here!

    1. Smile, they would know what to do with Puidgemont DF and you are right, it would be resolved quickly...
      I hope the Catalan people will be sensible, the Bask ETA is fresh in my memory...

  3. Game of Thrones is fiction, but here in the real world we see real events every day that make me cringe.

    1. A lot of politicians regard their work as fiction Leigh, for them it is a game and nothing more. And just like the tv-series their sole aim is power.
