Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't see Catalan secession form Spain as a bad thing, but I see a war being fought over it. And I see an opportunistic Catalan party which has never been explicitly for independence until their own regional government became bankrupt due to the crisis, and which attempts to shift the blame to Spanish government austerity when they were in power a year earlier in the region and introduced the same austerity by themselves.
