    I have made this point elsewhere, but it cannot be wrong to repeat it again. Although I am not a flag waving Englishman, who shouts Viva Great Britain at any time of excitement, I am very proud of my country. (Not the leadership of UK/GB, but all of the people, and our history). You see, it is not necessary to shout and wave our flag. Instead, I relax and bask in the Democratic greatness of this little union of nations, and let actions speak for themselves.
    Word was received from Scotland, that they wanted to leave the union. Thinking in parallel to Spain’s action to Catalonia, what did we do ? We agreed to a referendum in Scotland. and even took on board their wish to change the minimum age of voting. The wise Scots voted to stay in our union. Job done with little to no violence, with the SNP licking their wounds and muttering !
    There is no need to repeat what is happening in Catalonia, except to say that a referendum on the matter of separation, has to be agreed by both sides, or it will have little to no standing. The position of Spain could, and should have been ridiculed in the world, until agreement to honour the vote was received, and then the referendum could have taken place. Instead the Police come in to prevent the Catalans from voting, and the Army is ready to give support. It’s rather nice to be proved right. Back in the 1960s I did a lot of traveling in Europe, and no country was missed, except Spain. Franco was still in power, and I tolerated Communism, but would never accept Fascism. I was not about to spend money in his country. (My loss, as there are parts of Spain that are very beautiful !). We now see that, even with the Crown back in place, the Franco approach is still alive and well.
    Spain and Catalonia have a huge problem. Not to be outdone, the wretched EU has to get in on all of this. Rather than acting as the peacemaker, the EU takes the side of Spain, because they are totally against the idea of the Democratic way. (UK/GB voters that wished to remain in the EU, please take note). Now attention all Scots. If at sometime in the future you have another vote for independence, realise that there is not much chance of friendship from EU. You will be condemned for using Democracy, and your fleeting independence would evaporate as a member of the EU. This is a fact !
