    Spanyards have got the right idea, seems everyone wants their own tin pot nation these days
    Give it time and the UN is going to be like the Galactic Senate in Star Wars. How would that play out?!

      Shit. I was hoping this wouldn't happen, but suspected that it would.

      Spain needs to do the right thing and announce an official referendum immediately... but, of course, they won't.

      Stupid thing is, the polls were pointing towards more people wanting to stay within Spain rather than independence. Spain should have endorsed the vote and got an agreement that it was a 'Once In A Lifetime' vote (but we've heard that before from the SNP).

      This has been handled badly and I can't see that this issue will be suppressed by violence/police. This is an emotive subject and I can see this becoming a bigger issue now for Spain.

      To be fair, rumblings over a second referendum have only really started since the EU referendum in which Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay in.

      If you believe that was the true cause, then IMO, you're mistaken. She jumped at the chance and, even before things became clear she was angling for another vote. She was even ignoring polls which pointed to the fact that most people din't want another referendum and only back-tracked after the bloody nose in the GE.

      Granted, it was probably an excuse to get another referendum on the cards.
