They don't even have a majority of the people of Catalonia supporting
them. The King is against, them, the Spanish Government is against
them, The Spanish Constitution is against them (Section 155), the
Spanish Constitutional Court is against them, The European Union doesn't
want to know, and the Spanish government has already shown what the
people are in for if they try to break away illegally. Of such things
are revolutions made, and of such things revolutions turn into
reaction. Catalonia is one of the richest areas of Spain and a lot of
money is made out of tourism and second houses bought by other
Europeans. An uprising will cost the political leadership and the lower
echelons dearly...methinks. And it will destroy tourism for a year or
two and bring down the values of private property...Perish the thought.
Still, that's the way of the world and it makes life more interesting, I
suppose...Anyways, I am off on a busmans holiday, doing some more work
on my French property before winter sets in...and it does...with a
vengeance in that part of France.
Have a peaceful and quiet time, you guys in America. Looks like you
might be getting silencers on your weapons to stop them making too much
noise at Music Festivals...If it had been some Islamic of course,
instead of some white middle class nutter, Trump would have been closing
the borders and issuing all sorts of controls, but there you are...:-).
We'll see what happens later...after I return...:-)
