Interesting read. Now the British Forum/Advice column will enjoy eating crow with their less than realistic forceful assumptions that (The Healthcare will be free for all).

Possible lost in translation? I would rather believe the report from September in Spanish with the actual factual figures of the result, it was widely reported in the Spainsh media not just El Pais

https://www.eldiario.es/sociedad/Con...811569525.html
https://www.elplural.com/politica/co...rsal_202560102

Even video evidence of the event

Well, that's a mystery! Perhaps the El Pais in English story is a cock-up. Or perhaps there is another explanation. No doubt someone will tell us!

I’m no longer worrying about it. It isn’t worth the energy

No, it says the same in the Spanish version as well: https://elpais.com/politica/2019/02/...86319.amp.html

“Además, el real decreto ley para la universalización de la atención sanitaria, aunque fue aprobado por el Consejo de Ministros el 27 de julio del año pasado, no se ha desarrollado porque el Gobierno decidió transformarlo en proyecto de ley, cuyo trámite no ha comenzado en el Congreso.”

Basically, from that, to me it looks like although the law was agreed, the rollout of the law across the country has to be agreed by Congress, so it won’t be happening.

There is universal free health care in Catalyuna, including those without legal residence.

Please explain what part of the video I posted above of congress voting it through last September 173 votes against 133 that you can't grasp.

https://www.abc.es/espana/abci-congr...620_video.html

Also it was implemented in Andalucia within a few weeks of congress voting in favour.

The problem, I suspect, is that the link doesn't work (at least it doesn't for me)

Read the article in Spanish that I quoted above. Yes, everyone knows it was passed, but it has not been rolled out everywhere and now it will not be. And of course the next govt will probably try to remove it where it has been put in place.
