So, how do you feel about Trump bashing Puerto Rico this morning to deflect critisism away from his ego?

I'm not really disagreeing with you dude, I'm just trying to go deeper.

And of course I think it's incredibly unethical and typical of him.

Catalan referendum: Activists occupy school ahead of vote - BBC News

Seems like there will be trouble tomorrow. Surely it would be better to allow the referendum but make it clear it's not legally binding.
And you just know any bloodshed is going to be blamed on the Catalans. "We told them, we warned them not to turn up. This was an illegal referendum. We can't be held responsible" etc etc et-****ing-cetera.

You've got to feel for them tbh. Some of the lads I've seen on the articles doing interviews don't even necessarily want independence, just want to have a vote, and they're being silenced, which legitimises the independence movement and the idea that they don't have freedom.

I wonder what the lads in the Basque Country are thinking?

Better luck in 2020 boyz n gurlz...though if you believe Michael Moore it looks like he's a two termer.
The Republicans still control the house and the senate and they can't get their non sense passed through. It has nothing to do with DT really.

A resurgence in support for the rebirth of ETA?

Not sure but support for independence there must be growing seeing all this?

Mental scenes in Catalonia is anyone watching? Not sure what I was expecting, but wasn't expecting it to be as bad as that. Videos all over Twitter of people bloodied, being thrown around and hit with batons. Rubber bullets as well.

#BREAKING-#Catalan President Carles Puigdemont says "We will declare independence within 48 hours of announcing results of independence vote

Barcelona play later though might be postponed, Las Palmas are planning to wear Spanish flags on their kits, in support of Spain. They just posted a photo on their Twitter.

I respect Spain's sovereignty and understand why they'd be driven to try to stop the vote, but the way they're handling it is awful. Counterintuitive too, this will only drive more people (including formerly neutral Catalonians) to support Catalonia.
