He's back!!!!!!!!!!!

Colonel Antonio Tejero that is - the man who tried to bring down the government in 1981 by invading parliament and shooting his pistol.

Great piece by Giles Tremlett in the Guardian about him fulminating (along with other soldiers) about Catalonia's new proposed autonomy.

Turns out the government is creasing itself laughing 1) because the chances of a new coup attempt are so minimal as to be zero and 2) because these lot associate themselves with the rather gormless conservative opposition, creating a skunk-like smell which puts off anyone of moderately centrist views....
