Catalonia’s leader: ‘We will declare independence in a matter of days’
- Speaking to the BBC on Tuesday, the head of Catalonia’s devolved government Carles Puigdemont, said his administration would declare independence from Spain “act at the end of this week or the beginning of next.”
From what I understand, if Catalonia declares its independence and separates from Spain they will be out of the EU. I am fairly certain that admittance to the EU requires all current members to approve any request. Something tells me that Spain might not be in a very cooperative mood!
That means that I could have avoided this 1,000nm round trip to Gibraltar and just stayed in place!!
