The threat of UDI looms but the Spanish establishment is not backing down:

In response, it seems Catalan leaders are determined to press ahead with UDI irrespective of far-reaching consequences:

The De Jure Duke of Parma, as inheritor of one of the competing Carlist claims, throws his weight behind the Spanish monarchy and preserving a federal union:

Some good noises at last. Spain simply SHOULD stay as it is UNITED and (hopefully from now on) unbound.

An update. Catalonia may have another election, given the separatists don't all like each other:

Actually, I've always believed that breaking up Britain and Spain is something that suits the EU agenda far more. The whole "progressive" narrative of Catalan separatism, like Scottish "nationalism", pretty much fits there.

I am a bit of a cricket aficionado, as well as being a monarchist.

The plans for a new Catalonian referendum on becoming an independent republic are becoming more and more concrete. The wikipedia page on the subject seems to a good overview of the current situation:

Spain isn't going to let them get their way regardless. After all, they've just concluded a 50-year plus war against the terrorist scum ETA, who have been worn down and announced their unilateral disarmament. I think the uncompromising Spanish stance is refreshing, frankly.

So do I! I hope they will keep it up.

I find it very hard to predict how the rest of the world would respond in case violence would erupt, which seems inevitable if Catalonia would really try to establish an independent state unilateraly. That's already a big 'if': they have backed down before and may do so again. Still, it's a scenario that seems to become more likely.

Spain is preventing secession at any cost. It's not unlawful when the constitution prohibits secession:
