Has anyone been paying much attention to Catalonia's situation? All I know is what Radio 4 has reported and talked about it in regard to it's independence. Is it at all similar to Brexit?  More like Ukraine? Or is it entirely different?

 

Eu seems to be very quiet. Scotland are obviously going to be for it, and our government isn't really saying all that much. I'm all for the people having an official democratic vote. But I guess it's too late for that now, how accurate was that vote if it wasn't 'official'. Conservatives living in Catalonia, seem to be for the vote but not for independence. 

 

Where do Spain and Catalonia stand internationally atm?

Scotland were given a choice by the UK to leave.

 

Brexit is a country leaving a not-quite-federal union of countries.

 

Ukraine has pro-Russian citizens who want switch to be a part of Russia.

 

It's more like Hong Kong. A historically/culturally distinct nation/area that wants to become independent from its parent country without being given any legitimacy to do so, nor any means of acquiring that legitimacy.

 

I fully support Catalonia's right to seccession, as I fully support Hong Kong's right to seccession.

People are saying it's a socialist movement? Or are they just putting people into a political box.

i don't think the sepratist have a magority hens why it was done the way it was done more like a slow moving coup 

 

think they may have elections in december that should give you a real idea for independence vs unionist support 

 

now that the big corps are moving there head office's out or the region the argument that they are net contributor becomes moot
