I think Teresa May has a cheek speaking out and saying the UK doesn't recognise this bid for independence. Who is she to speak on this without the approval of parliament and with her tiny majority. It's really quite annoyed me.
Sounds like she's trying to suck up to Spain . At least Jeremy Corbyn has spoken up against the violence from the Spanish police which I admire him for. It was like some third world dictatorship watching those police attacking civilians.
It does leave a sour taste that the EU with all their mealy mouthed Human Rights will not speak out against this shocking police violence. I am disgusted really. Spain is in a bad way with huge youth unemployment. I don't think people can be battered into submission by police batons. It's hardly the way of a so called civilised nation.
You will find all the European Countries will back Spain here. This ^^ It's standard policy. It's not her personal view, it's not the Conservative view, it's the official line that any government would take regardless of party or leader.
