Democracy works in Spain, does not need to be restored, just protected instead. Some facts: 1: the Spanish Constitution was voted only 39 years before those events, it was voted in 1978, the results were 90,5% for yes in Catalonia and 89,7% for yes in Spain as overall. The article #1 of the Constitution, that catalans voted by 90,5% only 39 years before, says: "Spain is constituted as a social and democratic State of Law, which advocates freedom, justice, equality and political pluralism as superior values of its legal system. National sovereignty resides in the Spanish people, from whom the powers of the State emanate." The article 2 of the Constitution, that catalans voted by 90,5% only 39 years before, says: "The Constitution is based on the indissoluble unity of the Spanish Nation, the common and indivisible homeland of all Spaniards, and recognizes and guarantees the right to autonomy of the nationalities and regions that integrate it and the solidarity between them." 2: Since then in Spain there is a Constitutional Court, which is a jurisdictional body that is mainly responsible for making the primacy of the constitution effective. It has the attribution of interpretation of the constitution and of exercising control of the constitutionality of laws and other norms of infra-legal rank, that is, it has the faculty to review the adequacy of the laws, and ultimately of the bills and legislative or executive decrees, to the constitution. 3: there was one fake referendum, already declared as ilegal and suspended by the Constitutional Court not by the government, as the separatists try to convince themselves and everyone else. 4: the regional police refused to fulfill the mandate of the court to suspend the votes. 5: due to the fact that the regional police abandoned their duties, then the Spanish government decided in order to cover them and sent the national police to Catalonia only to prevent the votes to happen, fulfilling the mandate of the Constitutional Court. 6: the national police went to the election offices and blocked the entrance were still the people was not there or entered to take the votes were the people already was there. 7: it was not the government who attacked the people, that is totally untruth, but it was the people who attacked and challenged the police in carrying out of their duties. 8: There was not a "lot of violence from the spanish government", Catalonia has a population of 7,44 millions, the results of the 1st Oct 2017 are: People: 893 bruised or injured, 4 of the hospitalized. Policemen: 431 bruised, 10 were medically discharged. Considering that the policemen were very well equipped and protected it seems that the people attacked them, but you that does not create sensationalist headlines in the international media against Spain. In Spain as well as in every developed country, such as UK, in which the law is respected if the Constitutional Court declares something as ilegal and suspends it, then the police has to go to preserve the law, if you try to prevent the police from carrying out their duty, you know positively that you will be repelled, the damage that you will suffer will be only proportional to your insistence on going against the police, as simple as that. It will be like that in Spain, in UK, in Germany in France, in Holland, in Sweden, etc..., but it is very easy to do as usual in Europe and USA: let's throw misinformation based on half-truths about the Spanish barbarians, well... we have 500 years of experience on that called "Black Legend". This is simply what happened on 1st October 2017.

You Americans, can not give lessons of anything to Spain. You made a civil war where millions of people died, because the southern states wanted to be an independent country. Did you let them do what they wanted? you let them make a referemdum? you let them be a country to the confederate states? you let Texas be free? You do not have any moral authority to say that Spain should be independent from Catalonia, which has always been part of Spain and always will be, especially while most Catalans want it, as it happens today.

Para los hispanohablantes que estais por aqui simplemente dire: BERNARDO DE GALVEZ SIN EL APOYO DE LA CORONA ESPAÑOLA, LA ARMADA ESPAÑOLA Y LA MILLONADA EN CORONAS DE PLATA, MEDICINAS, ARMAS Y VESTIMENTA QUE DIO EL ESTADO ESPAÑOL A GEORGE WASHINGTON... ESTADOS UNIDOS JAMAS SE HABRIA INDEPENDIZDO DE LAS COLONIAS. EN ESE MOMENTO 2/3 DE ESTADOS UNIDOS ERAN PARTE DE ESPAÑA, DESDE LA FLORIDA HASTA LAS ROCOSAS, NI MAS NI MENOS QUE SE CONOCIA COMO "NUEVA ESPAÑA"... BERNARDO DE GALVEZ ES EL UNICO ESPAÑOL QUE APARECE EN CUADROS HISTORICOS JUNTO A GEORGE WASHINTGON Y EL UNICO QUE A DIA DE HOY TIENE UN CUADRO EN EL CAPITOLIO COMO UNO DE LOS QUE AYUDARON A LOS PADRES FUNDADORES DE ESTADOS UNIDOS. Asi que... Este señor es un SUBRNORMAL, otro de los muchos ANALFABERTOS AMERICANOS que votan a Trhump y que desconocen su historia.

I'm no a very big fan of Spain since I'm from the basque country but... dude... how do you dare to mock spain,??? the United States of America First wouldn't had get their independence from UK. If it was not for the support that spain held to the colonies with both money and weapons. And when you speak about the " carnage " that those you call conquistadores arguably made there... l really have to contain myself. That's the reminiscence of the Lutheran cristians hat tried to and succeed as we can see in this proud and not very readed guy known as Stephen. A guy that I used to respect. To spread the historic lie that spains's empire was nothing but a dark dungeon of inquisitors and torture. What a shame. Did you know that a lot of last names from south American people which I consider my brothers are from my land, the basque country???? Like Sofia VERGARA. That is because instead of killing every one like you did with native American people we mixed with them.

I didn't expect you such a frivolous aproach supporting the nacionalist cleptocracy discurse without even check last elections numbers. Do you want another easy 5 min speech? Just compare german Nazi arguments with the supremacists governing right now in catalonia.

Do get informed before talking!!!! It's NOT really a problem between Catalonia and the rest of SpaiN. The real problem is basically that Catalonia's society is split into two halves (those who feel Spanish and those who don't) that currently hate each other. Therefore, it's a problem between Catalans. Have you learnt that the current Catalan separatist leader is a xenophobic racist writer of thousands of hate articles?? He's texted twits on Twitter along the same lines.

They just created problems to themselves and to everyone else.

No need to ever tell me you are not a news show, Stephen. Holy damn that was astoundingly inaccurate information. Please tell your researchers to not go to Wikipedia for the information. Just to clear some facts: Yes the catalan parliament decided to vote for independence. However that vote was illegal. The Catalonian Parliament does not have the power to declare itself independent of the State. Just as the State House in Texas or in California cannot have tomorrow a vote to leave the Union. The Supreme court (our Consitutional Court in this matters) issued a ruling prior to the vote informing that such action was illegal and unconstitutional. The government did it anyway. More than 50% of the population do not support an independent Catalonia, but even if they did, the decision is one that purports the whole of the country, not a region, for the unity of my country is as much mine to decide as that of someone from Barcelona. So yes, if an elected official, whom, by the way has to swear an oath to uphold the Constitution violates that oath, divides the people of its region, puts my whole country in turmoil because suddenly the democratic rules do not apply to him, we will call for the justice system to take him and all of his supporters in. Not because of his ideals or ideas, which by the way are pretty fricking racist, and elitist, but because he broke the law. A law which is founded in our Constitution that has made Spain a vibrant modern democracy with important weight in the EU. Democracy its not only voting. It is the respect of the rule of law that enables among many things the right of the people to vote. In other words, either you cover something you do not have any kind of idea with a little more professionalism or you are going to say some pretty idiotic stuff like in Catalonia they have their own cuisine. Duh, you should come to Spain, every fricking nook and cranny of my country has a traditional dish. That does not make them a country. I want to imagine this is the first and only time I heard about this in your show because someone actually took the time to read about it and oh my, it seems we said some pretty stupid stuff. Even if that is the case get your shit together. I honestly do not care if you offend me, because hey, everyone has a right to their opinions but come on man, you are giving wings to these fanatics who talk about purity of blood and how inmigration from Andalucia (Southern Spanish region) are tainting their culture and heritage... This was just massively disappointing, and that's a pity because I am a big fan. Do better man, I know you are capable of doing decent coverage.

Catalans aren't taxed unfairly. They are taxed like everybody else, we have a system that taxes more heavily those who are wealthier, and in Catalonia there are more wealthy people ergo more taxes. But a Catalan and an Andalucian that make the same money pay yhe same taxes to the central government. Important to mention that in their last regional elections before declaring independence, the separatists lost the popular vote, although they did get the seat majority they needed to act unilateraly without taking into consideration the will of more than half the population, who voted for the unionist parties. Also Franco is not even brought up anymore in this debate, not relevant to the current situation.

1- Several regions of Spain have a different cuisine, language, music, dance etc and you don't have to travel very far in Spain to experience a difference. 2- Yes, Catalonia was a duchy in the kingdom of Aragon, but historical evidences from the time show that people from that time considered themselves part of a bigger 'country' ever since visigoths 700 hundred years before King Ferdinand and Queen Elisabeth united the 2 kingdoms 3- Franco's uprising was a military coup staged a the republic and once he got to power (something that happened by accident because he wasn't even the first candidate) he got rid of the people who opposed him all over Spain. Catalonia wasn't special. In fact, the number of victims in the whole Catalonian region during the repression don't even make it the 10th most affected region of Spain, Andalucía being the top region. 4- and I feel this might be the most important point. These people are not political refugees. They were talking about declearing the independance for years now and nothing had happened to them. Once they staged an ilegal voting, something that violates the Spanish constitution (which more than 90% of Catalonians ratified when it was signed) they were sent to jail, much like I can talk all I want about robbing a bank and not go to jail but as soon as I try to rob it, that constitues a criminal offense. 5- Yes some catalonians complain about having to support the rest of Spain and that could be seen as 'unfair' but when it comes to money, why not talk about the 3 billion euros ex regional presiden Pujol stole from the Catalonians over his political career and the 3% on illegal comissions the government in power imposed to business during their time in power?
