Catalonia’s Parliament Votes to Secede From Spain by 2017

by Joshua Krause, Daily Sheeple:

Catalonia’s parliament recently approved a resolution that will push the province to secede from the rest of Spain by no later than 2017. The Catalan regional government now has 30 days to begin drafting a new constitution, and start establishing a tax office and social security administration. The resolution passed by a vote of 72 to 63 despite the protests of the central government, who have long asserted that no Spanish province has the legal right to secede.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said the vote would be challenged in court, before adding that “Catalonia is not going anywhere, nothing is going to break.” However, the pro-secessionists knew that their vote would likely be ruled illegal in Spain’s court system, so they added a stipulation to the resolution that specifically tells the regional government to ignore all orders issued by any higher court.


This all but guarantees a showdown between Madrid and Catalonia, and we’ll soon see what lengths either side will go to assert their sovereignty.

One thing we know for sure is that the debt riddled Spanish government can’t afford to lose their most prosperous province, which produces a fifth of their GDP. The European Union can’t afford to let the province secede either, even though the secessionists still want to be a part of the EU. If Spain doesn’t willingly let the province leave, the secessionists have promised that they won’t take any of Spain’s debt with them.

    “However, the pro-secessionists knew that their vote would likely be ruled illegal in Spain’s court system, so they added a stipulation to the resolution that specifically tells the regional government to ignore all orders issued by any higher court.”

    Hopefully, the Catalonians did not use the term “higher” court as does this article because that is tacit admission that another court has jurisdiction over them. Instead, they should use the term “other court” and not “higher court”. If they are to be independent, no other court should be allowed to give them any orders. The time of national governments holding their smaller units in thrall are over. It is now time for national governments to rule by the consent of the governed and not by mere force of arms. When a nation government fails to represent the people in a state or province, those in such a state or province MUST have the alternative of freedom from that sort of national government… and hopefully via a legal process and not via force of arms.

    Will never be allowed to happen…

    Just like Bo Baloney’s prediction of a Nov collapse… popcorn for the show watchers.
