Rather than the little local difficulty we've been fed by the media it rather looks like the second spanish civil war is about to break out. A complete mishandling of the matter by Madrid being the major factor. What we are seeing in Spain is what we've always been careful to avoid in the UK. It's also what could easily have happened if there had been an EU-style attempt to ignore or overturn the referendum result. The Catalans seem to be going about it in the right way in launching their own currency. If only the Greeks had had this much sense, or at least the sense to ignore the ECB and let the printing presses run whilst they still had the ability. Spain's plot to use Brexit to enslave the Gibraltarians is now looking like a silly joke, as yet another plank of the remainer case (the allegedly sensitive Gibraltar issue) is kicked away. Will the Basques seize this opportunity, or will the EU's mounting problems surface somewhere else first? The Leave campaign said we needed to be clear of the EU as soon as possible to avoid getting dragged into the looming mess with British forces becoming involved - we are not clear yet!
