There was a time when politicians did not know how to solve an issue, so they created a committee. It was the way to cut off problems from the authorities, without the opposition being able to respond because it involved them in the search for a solution. The first to see that commissions were a scam was Napoleon, who wrote: “If you want something done, put someone in charge; If you want the matter to be delayed forever, make a commission.” But the commissions still enjoy prestige: it is enough to see that Independence has requested the formation of three investigative commissions, approved by Congress, into the Catalonia Operation, the 17-A attacks in Barcelona, and the Pegasus Affair.

On any given day, sides will require VAR, as in football, to explain themselves to their players, when they believe they have missed a goal across the penalty area.
