Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And if Rajoy cancels the local government in Catalonia wholesale (legally or illegally), his government will fall and the next facing the same predicament. Only way out I can see for Rajoy is to call new elections in Spain and double down on the Strong against seperatists message.

I saw somewhere that over 700,000 ballots were cast and confiscated, and if those were from different voters than the counted votes (hard to know during the circumstances), and the proportions are the same there, then there already is a majority of voters supporting independence.
