Catalan independence referendum to be tabled within weeks

ERC, the Catalan nationalist coalition, announced today in Congress that “within weeks” they would be tabling the proposed Catalan Independence Referendum Bill, together with a timetable, for the approval of Congress.

The PP has stated before that they will reject any attempt to table such legislation and will not permit a referendum, so this is going to cause a fuss.

Anyway, the question will be “more or less”: Are you in favour of the independence of Catalonia? Yes or No”, along with a timetable for the referendum.

Rajoy has replied, saying that the future is in union, not separation, and warning of the dangers of being a single little state outside of Spain and the EU.
