Catalonia independence referendum.
#1
'If voting changed anything, they'd abolish it.'  Ken Livingstone.


It seems Franco has returned in Spain as the government uses force to stop the ballot taking place. The government couldn't have handled it any more badly. Prime Minister Rajoy is looking more like Erdgan.

What voters faced when attempting to vote.

This voter presented a clear and present danger to democracy.

Obviously having fought for 800 years to get some of our own independence, there's plenty of support for an independent Catalunya here.
I think they should let them have a vote. From what I read, the outcome would likely be to remain with the union.

Most opinion polls state the vote be 55%-45% to remain part of Spain. This behaviour could change that.

if Catalonia did go independent, then that will encourage the Basques to follow and Silesia to seek
similar from Poland, not to mention Bavaria leaving Germany.

Little wonder the EU is not even condemning the brutality, the situation in Spain could spin out
of control and make Brexit seem like a irritation in comparison.
