shailesh us he is head of the madrid office of the european council on foreign relations also the author of a paper called three myths about catalonia independence movement francisco welcome to you and. we understand that you're a critic of this vote and the whole process that has led to it in the past week we know that the referendum it was first banned by the central government and then marred by scenes of police violence that all of us have seen on television why not just let the people of catalonia vote. well i think there's a very simple answer don't know if you know these referendum was criticised was known. or to. have they got a lot of people and especially the opposition parties which when this was. by they got them in parliament there really is at them or in minor for many says. well none of that since they left the bar lamenting this a bit and that's the big fear of catalonia now
a fractured society so this was this was never meant to be a preferred them about the referendum but at this moment and a show of force all the procession movement in the only which is true but were known this editions and he has don't no way with the either two got the law or it got the nationalists and if these would have gone forward in any way it has gone forward in sort of evil have meant to the provision of rights of all those people so this this was never going to be a lot of the question is what would have been the berber reaction and this is something we're discussing here yeah and i want to get to that reaction in just a moment but first i want to drill down a little bit deeper into the legitimacy of the vote because you wrote in your paper that in order for the cattle and people to have a self-determination referendum there would first need to be a fundamental reform of of you wrote the one nine hundred seventy eight spanish constitution but apparently there's no political consensus to do that it sounds
like what you're describing is an impossible situation so what are supporters of independence therefore to do. yeah i mean it would be impossible but we don't know because the plan for proposed by the got on board and was never discussed in the grid unlike a similar plan discuss by the basque overman ten years ago. the continents have voted for for their state as i voted at least twice and have old and thirty three times in the most cressy and twice in referenda one for the previous constitution overwhelming support ten years ago in the studies autonomy which was repealed by take out the parliament with this referendum on the disconnection of laws but it's important to understand that this was never about the vote is was oblivious and they're pushing ahead for you know drug aggression in the pen this which will make voters worse so what are they supposed to do well i
think first of all is the rest of got the owners will be a good way to begin with and try to try to full our constitution framer because yes we could reform this constitution and there are forces in spend who think about reforming the constitution and this could be put to a nationwide vote for so that the measure of friend i have to say most because they do so on the motors is certainly in the you to no teleport that only the u.k. but it required their consent for which mr so it is i understand i mean it's a very difficult situation but i think we're conflate in some government with the right for independence and this is i think these are two different things a lot of food for thought there and a lot of very strong opinions we know both in spain and in catalonia we thank you very much for sharing your perspective on it francisco the boys i last had asked head of the madrid office of the european council on foreign relations.
