Here we go again...
On friday 9th June Carles Puigdemolt announced the next referéndum to determine Independence from Spain will be on 1st October 2017.

It appears though that support for Independence is falling..

Political crazyness....

Latest during the last two weeks is that:

- Carlos Puigdemont (Catalan president) told Oriel Junkers (second in command) to pay for the voting boxes (las urnas) but he won't do it alone. Artur Mas got into trouble for doing that last time.
- The Spanish government yesterday told the Catalan government they have to submit weekly accounts to the ministry of finance. This is to make sure they aren't spending public money to finance the referéndum. (Funny, they claim to have no money to pay the farmacias but have money to spend on the referéndum  Lips Sealed)
- If they are found to be funding the referéndum the central government will suspend all financing for Catalunya.
- Latest polling has shown support for Independence is falling, down to 41% whereas support for continuing to be part of Spain is rising, 48%
- This week the (non Independence) head of the Mossos de Esquadra resigned due to 'political pressure' and wes replaced by a pro Independence person.
- Same for 2 of the Catalan cabinet ministers. Both replaced by pro Independence people.

As to the voting, I haven't Heard anything but will keep checking.
