    Background: SYNOPSIS: "But if Opus offers us little hope of internal political change, who then does"?
    "The general trend is towards a more conservative view of life... there is no free public opinion there is not a free election".

    Few men speak publicly against the spanish political system one of the few is the Count of Matrico Former Spanish Ambassador to the US in many ways a safe establishment figure. He has served his country with dignity he could scarcely be called a revolutionary. Yet as the result of a recent lunch with 17 sympathetic colleagues his passport has been seized and he is being questioned by magistrates for possible political offences.

    "I wouldn't call myself a man of the opposition. I am just a man who descents of some of the aspects of the actual government.. My position is one of a conservative democrat... that still hasn't happened as it should"
