I thought El Ag had said it wasn't a state organised referendum and therefore the result would be ignored ... ?

Can't remember where. Probably the Brexit thread.

To try and get inside information, El Ag fluffs the illuminati. I wouldn't believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

Crazy that they have to resort to these tactics. No warrants etc.
If they'd allowed a proper referendum it would've gone the same way as Scotland.
There would've been enough pro-union and afraid of the unknowns to swing it.
As it is they'll do their best to disrupt things then poo-poo the result of anything that happens.
All of this behaviour is backed by a constitution that was never voted on and came in with the backdrop of Franco not long dead and the military waiting in the wings if people asked for too much.
We'll see what happens on October 1st.

Spain has never really stopped being a Francoist state, and events such as this prove it.

The Constitution was voted on and ratified - 87% in favour and 9% against: To view the link you have to Register or Login

I agree the government should have sought a "political solution" (a bribe) three or four years ago, but the conflict suits both sides.

They can't allow a referendum as you know - or change the constitution to allow referendums. For one thing it would mean 17 referendums and 17 bribes, and for another thing it would expose the country to a pretty absurd degree of uncertainty - communities would just demand a referendum every time they wanted anything. It would completely still intenral and external investment.

The problem is more what happens on October the 2nd than on the 1st, to be honest.

The constitution was a lash up. The alternative was to go back to what was there before.

They had already held the first free elections and elected a Parliament with members of every party and under universal suffrage, 18 months before the vote on the constitution.

With a bit of luck the whole country will see what a monumental cock up Rajoy has made of managing this; and with a bit more luck, nobody will get hurt.

As you can see, two of the seven fathers of the Constitution were Catalan, one of them representing the mainstream nationalist party in Parliament.

Perish the thought that a referendum might have that effect.
