According to the European Union, if Catalonia was to successfully become an independent nation, breaking away from Spain, they would have to leave the European Union, joining the UK
A spokesperson for the European Commission said: “This is an internal matter for Spain that has to be dealt with in line with the constitutional order of Spain.
“If a referendum were to be organised in line with the Spanish constitution it would mean that the territory leaving would find itself outside of the European Union.
“Beyond the purely legal aspects of this matter, the Commission believes that these are times for unity and stability, not divisiveness and fragmentation.”
The Catalan referendum which took place on Sunday had no legal status after being blocked by the Madrid government and Constitutional Court for being at odds with the 1978 constitution.
If they were to become independent and ‘Catxit’, I am sure the UK government would support Catalan and become strong trading partners.
Do you support the idea of Catalan breaking away from Spain?
