Aznar, noble champion of democratic freedom:
Spain's outgoing ruling party has threatened to sue Oscar-winning Spanish director Pedro Almodovar after he accused it of planning a "coup".
The Popular Party (PP) was infuriated by the director's allegation that it planned to postpone Sunday's general election in a bid to maintain power.
