Armchair politics


#202

Have been watching it on twitter at #CatalanReferendum unreal


#203

The clip of people being thrown down stairs, just really what the fuck.


#204

Easy to forget, but Spain has only been a democracy since 1978.


#205

I gather it’s why they are one of the few European countries that doesn’t have a resurgent nationalist right wing group. Many people there can still remember the last one.


#206

The Catalans have their own language, culture,and are geographically on the edge of the country and have always had an independence debate going.

A bit like Wales except with far more money and a much better football team.


#207

Potential for an explosion (sorry!) in support for a Catalan version of ETA.

First class toffcunt

And I’d like to know to know where he got 5 million quid. Coz he didn’t fucking work for it :rage:


#211

He doesn’t have any money invested in those pills, he dosn’t even run the investments any more.

(He’s still a toff cunt though)


#212

Wot? An internet meme that’s a load of bullshit? I’m shocked.


#213

There’s plenty of stuff to call him a cunt over so don’t see the need to make shit up.


#214

I haven’t looked into that hard but the missus just said she’s seen his response to it and it wasn’t that he doesn’t own the shares. I admit to not being that discerning when it comes to tory eejits.


#215

What is the support in Catalan for independence, is it overwhelming at eighty percent or something? Maybe What we are seeing is a lot of Leave voters protesting, the Remain voters may well just ignore this referendum if the Spanish government has called it illegal. It’s a fucking shambles and the nationalists are making the most of it.


#216

I jut caught the latest on the news. I don’t understand why the central govt is trying to stop people voting. Surely it would be easier to let the vote go ahead and just ignore the result? Or am I missing something?


#217

Scotland can’t call an independence vote without Westminster approval, I imagine the same applies in Spain.


#218

Their police were brought up under fascism, and still believe in it.

Beating up the elderly and disabled is part of the brief, much like Britain.

#219

Exactly. So rather than loads of violence let them get on with it and then ignore it.


#220

Then the violence would truly start, the remain voters would cry foul and the State would have to intervene.


#221

Surely An examples of a fully inclusive bit if policing, beatings for all.
