If the Germans want it, Spain will fall in line.  Can get around the Catalonia Thing by saying Scotland is the member of a United Kingdom, they are already a member, and the Kingdom of England and Wales leaving doesn't affect Scotland's membership.

How's that for a line of BS to get around the problem?

How about this: England & Wales leaves the UK. The United Kongdom of Scotland & Northern Ireland remains in the EU.
