Oct 13 2017 Catalonia
It is unlikely that Puigdemont will alter his position. (Puigdemont's) first reaction has been to insist on establishing a 'bilateral dialogue' with Spain with 'no prior conditions'; backpedalling on independence would only lead to an even bigger disappointment within the secessionist camp. The list must then be debated and approved by a specific committee, after which it will be sent to the plenary for discussion and a final vote.” said Antonio Barroso on this article: Catalonia given 8-day deadline to drop independence bid - but separatists 'unlikely to back down'.

Mar 16 2017 - Scottish independence

I think they'll deal with it when they have to deal with it; it's basically the decision-making mode of Rajoy. The Spanish government has been very adept at not showing its cards until the moment of decision. [It's] shown that trying to veto something and being left in a minority is a very powerless position. It might put you in a very difficult situation going forward because the EU isn't a zero-sum game; it's a repeated game in which different members states extract gains in successive negotiations.feedback
