Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When Valencians break off Catalunya?
Valencia may be part of the Països Catalans, but part of catalunya it isn't. And you should see the acrimonious debates that go on regarding whether Valenciano is a separate language, and whether Catalans want to exercise imperialism on Valencia... I mean, you really should.

Same think on whether "Euskal Herria" includes Navarra of the French Basque Country. Basque nationalist vote may be about 50% in what is now called Pais Vasco (50% in Bizkaia and higher in Gipuzkoa, but lower in Araba), about 10% in Navarra (Nafarroa) and about 5% over on the French side (Lapurdi and Zuberoa).

It's all nonsense, and at the same time it is not.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
