CATALONIA’S BITTER LESSON FOR THE SNP FANATICS


Here in Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon has been talking up the injustice of taking Scotland out of the EU ‘against our will’. How delicious that her beloved EU is taking the wrong side on Catalan independence.  As neither Madrid nor Barcelona can back down, the crisis could all too easily tip over into a civil war. Even without war, the dislocation in Catalonia will prove a bitter and deterring lesson for Scottish voters on the dangers of petty nationalism. Viewed in this light, Scottish nationalist support for Catalan independence is brutally ironic.
