The EU is going to collapse. But it looks more likely that the Catalans will be the brave ones to bring back democracy to the continent. There are so many cowardly Britons who want to be nannied, or who are worried about losing their Eastern European low-wage servants, that they probably will no longer be playing the role of democracy's saviour.

the catalans are brave indeed.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

It has nothing to do with the EU in this case. It's more than 200 years old.

Google "cause and effect," it's often important to get them the right way around!
