Catalonia

Why should Catalonia want separation from Spain? It has been a part of Spain for hundreds of years and yet now it wants to separate from the rest of the country. The vote taken just a few days ago shows that a very small majority want to see the province separate from the rest of Spain and become an independent state. Why?

It is all down to the the exiled President Puigdemont who wants to rule the province on his own. Currently he is exiled in Brussels, but still he doesn’t give up fighting for an independent state in which he will be head of the government.

There are so many people in the world who want to have total control over countries, and this is not good for the people.  We see this everywhere, for there is fighting in many lands led by people who want to control their countries. So many people are addicted to power, and this is not good.

I believe the whole world is going mad, for we have so many people who lust for power. Puigdemont is one these people, and who knows what the outcome will be. Rajoy, the leader of Spain is steadfastly against the separation of Catalonia.

Most people in Catalonia really don’t know how things will turn out if they get independence, for it is certain that they will go downhill if they achieve this. The whole province relies on tourism as a means to make it wealthy, and if the numbers drop they will be in dire straits.

Catalonia is the richest province in Spain, and who knows what effect this will have on the rest of the country. Apart from tourism, which is the main source of income for the country, there is not much else that keeps the country afloat. If tourism were to end, and those who have bought houses and flats sell out and go somewhere else, there will not be much left of Spain, for it will be a poor country.

Already we see many of the young moving to other countries trying to get a job, for there is very little in the country in the way of employment. For sure, in the summer months there are waiters and cooks who serve in restaurants and cafe’s, but when winter comes many of these are shut down. During the winter the unemployment statistics are sky high.

Spain is a country the relies greatly on tourism for the health of it’s economy, and should the figures fall the country will be in dire straits. All the most popular places in Spain are the coastal resorts where people can lie on the beaches, but this does not say much for the inland cities and towns. Most of Spain’s wealth comes from the coastal cities and towns which the tourists frequent the most.

If Catalonia does become an independent state Spain will suffer significantly.
