Re: Basque complication
The problem is that if Catalonia gets independence then the Bask region will have a president for them to get independence as well.
The Spanish government are fighting this because the Catalan region is the most productive of all the Spanish regions. If they become independent where is the Spanish government get its money from?
It will also open the can of worms on the French side of the border because there is a strong movement for the old area that was part of Catalonia before the French took over to be reunited with the Spanish part.
