THE UK has refused to recognize Catalunya’s independence declaration.

In a statement from Downing Street, it said the vote was based on an illegal referendum and added that it wants to see a united Spain.

The statement read: “The UK does not and will not recognise the unilateral declaration of indendence made by Catalonia’s regional parliament.

“It is based on a vote that was declared illegal by the Spanish courts. We continue to want to see the rule of law upheld, the Spanish constitution respected, and the unity of Spain preserved.”

Germany and France also threw their support behind Spain.

French leader Emmanuel Macron said Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has his ‘full support’.

  1. Breathtaking hypocrisy from the Maybot and her mob. They would scream from the rooftops that Catalunya and Brexit are different situations, but the basic principle remains. Sovereignty and independence are sought in both cases. (Even though it would be a disaster for each)
