Referendum on independence for the region declared illegal by central govt, ballot stations open but dibble bussed in from outside preventing voters from entering

The Spanish government are completely stupid !

All they had to do was simply ignore it. The high court has ruled the referendum illegal so whatever the vote the Spanish government could then choose what to do using the courts as necessary.

This heavy handed approach is an affront. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Very interesting to see how this pans out.

If they get independence it sets an international precedence. And Catalonia has the highest gdp of any region in Spain.

If they don't, then the people are forced to remain in a union they don't want to be part of..

Very spicy.
