Catalan parliament votes to declare independence from Spain, just as Madrid looks set to impose direct rule.

Read full story here

What do you make of this? Are you surprised? Do you think there will be repercussion for the Catalans from the Spanish government?

[EDIT] Developing news Saturday AM: Spain has imposed direct rule and taken charge of Catalan government.

Fair enough.

I mean, the Catalonian parliment knew that their power will be taken away from them and the president will be ousted so they have nothing to loose.

Does that mean that Catalonia got out of the EU faster than the UK?

I’m Spanish and all I can say is that Spain won’t be the same without Catalonia. Barcelona was the city bringing most of the money to the table due to tourism, so in theory the economy was going well thanks to Barcelona despite the economic crisis in Spain. I think Catalonia thought that they could fund their own economy instead of giving control of most of their finances to the central government in Madrid, hence why they want to go. What they don’t realise is that they will be insignificant once they start being independent. They’ll be out of the EU and with that, Europeans will not even think about stepping Catalonia because of the complexity of obtaining visas to visit the city and more. Note that I’m only talking about one of the factors that could affect Catalonia badly.

I have one thing to say:

Covfefe


Other than that, I don't deserve an opinion because I don't live there.

Could they make it so Europeans don't need a visa? In theory?

Don’t know why we can’t just pull out the EU with immediate effect. We should have done that in June 2016, then we’d be a powerful free nation once again.

Because that would be a stupid idea. I don't see how that's relevant to Catalonia.
