nah, it's about 25% but it's still hugely above many other regions.

Could you get this retrograde government out of power?

I'd say Rajoy really only rules with the centre-right party Ciudadanos, but it's a wafer thin number to do deals on. Strange that Ciudadanos (C's for short) put their reputation on being an anti-corruption party then team up with the most corrupt Spanish party of the whole recent democratic period in Spain. Yep, Spain is different!!!

Also, I have to say that I've always been pro-Europe EU ... up to now. But I am starting to re-evaluate. Now you see Poland getting its stick from the EU big-time for not taking enough refugees, but when the Catalans are really getting stick PHYSICALLY in the street as life-long CATALANS the EU seems to be doing nothing except turn a blind eye and say "be good boys". Worrying tendencies...

So, Spain are set to play Albania on Friday night. What scenes are to be expected there?! Especially if the Catalonians declare independence at the same time...which they've threatened too.

very intimidating and threatening probably. Alicante is where the game will be; very south of Valencia, almost Murcia/Andalusia. Sure to be hugely 'patriotic' against those 'naughty boys' up north !!! Laugh

If they go for independence against the wishes of Madrid, they could be in for a hard time.

As I understand it the state owned company that runs the air traffic control services could bring the three airports in Catalonia to a halt, the Army could be deployed to keep the streets clear of civilians and the navy could blockade Barcelona's port.

David, I do not want to put a damper on things but I just can't see Madrid letting Catalonia go it alone without a fight.

They want to be careful or Trump will administer a dose of freedom.

Dead right; talk at lunchtime of the army going across to do a back-up.
But it's ludicrous because there's no violence, the Catalans are totally pacific. Gandhi would have been so proud.
That makes it even worse for Madrid; they've got no obvious reason to go in, other than purely political and administrational ...
