Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It has been my impression that until the recent focus on austerity, a strong component of Catalan separatism was middle-class tax-payer anti-solidarity ("don't bring our money to Andalusia"); in the veneer of Flemish-Belgian, Bavarian separatism or at EU level Brexit advocates. Does/did this appear in ERC's rhetoric in some form?

ERC has made very controversial statements against territorial fiscal solidarity within Spain. The Spanish left was pretty miffed.
