one thing is for sure we do live in interesting times

Re: Catalonia Independence

Sounds familiar doesn't it. Maybe it'll all just go away if they ignore it long enough...

or it will fester and anger will grow until it erupts into civil unrest or even war , maybe the president is buying time to get his defenses in place before the inevitable battle with spain .

Re: Catalonia Independence

Surely not. That sort of thing can't happen in the EU, they won't allow it...

is there an EU directive against civil war within it's member states [doubtful ] more likely they will invoke operation blind eye and look the other way until the divorce bill is due .

Re: Catalonia Independence

Or maybe that's why they want a European army - to reinforce democracy when it goes the wrong way.

Nope. EU has very little ability to do anything on this matter.

It's almost as if member states are sovereign.

I guess you're too busy with the banter to answer my questions on the other thread. I presume you have some really good reasons for wanting to risk the UK's economy over and above personal prejudice and it'd be good to read them. We're all on here to listen to alternative points of view, right?

The war was over 72 years ago - you need to let it go.

I worked with members of the German Army and Air Force, who were ashamed of their past, but were proud to be part of NATO - they are now called the Bundeswehr.

btw, you were tautological- new and neo mean the same thing..

Sadly some are not that open to others views even if they don't hold the same view but l always say a open mind always learns more then a closed mind.
