As Catalan secession from Spain looks more likely, globalists are worried.
The original remark may not have been directly talking about Catalan secession from Spain. The Spanish politician may have been referring to the thuggish behavior of the Spanish police trying to stop the unauthorized election. That hurts the EU because it shows the violence that is inflicted on people to keep them in a “union” against their will.
The AFP reports, “Catalan crisis ‘bigger threat to EU than Brexit’, MEP warns.”
Images of the police crackdown on the vote drew a vocal reaction from some MEPs, with Belgium’s Philippe Lamberts, the head of the Green grouping in parliament, warning the crisis “threatened the spirit of European integration, even more than Brexit”.[…]
