Less than 40% voted "Yes".
2 million votes for Si, out of a registered vote base of 5.5 million.
There is a large, silent voting bloc out there who ignored this referendum.
This matches recent opinion polls which put it at 60-40 against breaking away.
If Catalonia gets it's wish, they will face serious internal communal strife.

It is only a matter of time. The state is doomed as soon as it finally runs out of borrowing ability.

A lot of money has been invested in catalonia region as a whole. The north of spain was always the industrial region, good land, resources and more moderate weather, so the money was spent there in the past.
If the government is forced to pull out, they could do what the french did in Guinea, take everything they can with them, nailed down or not.

Urban Dictionary: I'm all right Jack!! seems to be in fashion. I suspect an influx of foreign blood to catalonia would help make them feel less spanish.
But this is all greed. According to this, List of active separatist movements in Europe - Wikipedia, Nationalisms and regionalisms of Spain - Wikipedia there are 16 active independence movements in spain.
Difference is catalonia thinks it can go it alone and have more money in their pockets.

Spain was still a big boy in terms of voting power in europe, Voting in the Council of the European Union - Wikipedia, this would knock a fair chunk off there numbers. I think ireland would have more in common with spain then the rest, so I dont see it as a good thing.

And if by some miracle, europe doesnt go after our tax haven status, I would see an independent catalonia as direct competition to us as europes top whore.

Too many traitors in every corner these days, it might be too late for helicopter/plane rides over the atlantic for that lot.
