    Think bullfight,Catalonia the matadors,Spain the bull.Catalonians ask for a referendum on independence,Spain refuses,Catalonians do it anyway,red cape torro torro Spanish bull rushes in.Tactically speaking all Spain had to do was say go ahead have your referendum,we'll ignore it.No they rush in like a bull and make themselves look foolish.Like the bull ,they will almost certainly lose.Now the Spanish King turns up with the bull shit.The very idea this cheeky ponce has the nerve to lecture the Catalan people about democracy,this state puppet ,a self serving parasite shows how odious and undemocratic,the monarchy are.

    Oh for the days of the beloved General. He would hold Spain together during such times. And punish the adherents. We say nay to democracy and yes to holding Spain together through violence blood and fire. Oh General where forth art thou?

    Meh a royalist republican. Too hell with communistic republicanism. Remember all Spains gold reserves were moved from their central bank to Russia under the republic as well as freedom to worship under the Catholic Church was restricted. Meh to the republic - being back the General

    France has said they will not recognise Catalan declaration of independence.
    In fact, apart from maybe Venezuela, I cant think of anyone who will recognise it.
    They will immediately booted out of the EU if they do so also. (No bad thing, may I add).
    Also, the main opposition party (Socialist Party) in Spain has backed the Govt stance on Catalonia


    The massive peaceful rally in Barcelona is what the unionists should have been doing for the last few years, instead of Rajoy's hamfisted approach.

    According to the BBC

    17:47
    Reasons for shock delay debated
    Speculation is rife about the reasons Mr Puigdemont's address was delayed at the very last minute:
    • Some Spanish sources say there is a possibility of international mediation - something the Catalan leader has previously called for
    • Others are reporting that his party's coalition partners, the left-wing CUP party, were not happy with the text of his speech
    • A third possibility being discussed is that national politicians from PM Mariano Rajoy's conservative PP and the centrist Ciudadanos have tried to have his parliament appearance cancelled

    France has Brittany, the Basque Nation and Corsica to worry about. In my experience politically the most down to earth people in French politics you will find are the "Identitarian" pro-Independence Bretons. I would like Breton and Corsican independence but I don't know enough about the Basque situation to say yay or nae. The same goes for Catalonia. Scotland faced big problems about getting into the EU if the referendum went the SNP way from France and Spain.
