Sir, Your leader (Oct 3) suggests that the EU will not mediate for fear of showing any explicit sympathy with Catalonia. That would be both unfortunate and wrong. The sine qua non of any mediator is to be neutral and impartial. It should not be impossible for the EU to find a mediator or mediation organisation that has no axe to grind with either the Madrid government or the separatists. In the UK, the courts have the power to financially penalise parties that unreasonably refuse to mediate. The EU could do the same with Spain.
