Not that much different to Scotland pre EU referendum really from that point of view. Obviously now if anyhthing having as a country voted to remain in EU while England voted leave, then now different.

Somehow I doubt that. This an internal matter for Spain to resolve.

You'd think Brexit would've been a good example of what not to do. No winners... Everybody loses.

I suppose that will become more obvious after Britain drives itself off the cliff. I suspect Catalonia may not get that far.

No doubt the Jackboot brigade are relishing the thought of an EU militia - ready to quell any dissent. Juncker's pathetic groupies ready to bear arms

But isn't this a different story than Britain? Not that I'm for it but funny enough Andorra seem to do alright and nobody is complaining.

It is a different story than Britain. In Britain, the referendum lost. Catalonia has already gone way, way, way past what Scotland did.
