    Maybe the English government might get involved when actually they don’t need to, its Catalonia’s decision and what if they decide to leave?
    Unless they start abusing the united kingdom.
    I think that’s a grate question St Gregory’s Catholic School.

    This is a really challenging question! I’m really not sure. I think it might because brexit was really important so I think Catalonia independence would probably be more of an issue. I think this because brexit is us just leaving the European union however Catalonia wants to be a single country.

    I don’t think it will impact us because we are not necessarily close to Barcelona so we don’t really rule them and have expectations for them. If Catalonia was to separate from Barcelona then I don’t think it would be a huge problem/issue to us but it might affect people from Barcelona and Catalonia.

  4. If it does have an impact on us we could ask Catalonia politely to join Barcelona again . If they do not we would just have to be happy that they separated and find other ways around it for our country.

    In my opinion,I think it won’t impact on us because it looks like they are leaving Brexit early.Although,the country wants to be independent,that could lead to other countries wanting to be independent and then there would be no such thing as the EU.We should get involved because what if war happens and then…you never know what will happen.So in conclusion,this change that Catalonia has decided to make will impact us because there would be less worries;there could be more worries like I said before,a war could occur and many other things and in the end they will probably blame us and other countries for not getting involved.Hope you like what I wrote

    • Hi BNC, this is an interesting discussion. RainbowUnicron246, it is important not to present a slippery slope argument. This is when one bad thing ends up in another really big, much worse thing happening; for example, the war you suggested. It unlikely that a war would occur as lots of other, smaller events would have to happen before getting to that point. It would be great for the next people who comment to give reasons for their opinions, and see if they can include facts or examples to support their opinions! Olivia

    I think it may have an impact on us or other country’s because if they do decide to separate from Barcelona, we don’t know where they will go from there. blueunicorn

    You should try to sort it out by putting people in positions they don’t like!

    Maybe you should come all together and do so many votes???

    I think that if it did impact on us in any way, it would impact on the area of trading. We get some of our everyday products and foods from Spain/Barcelona. If they did separate, we would have to try and keep in trading with both places for as long as we can.

    To be fair it’s none of our business but if our government decides to get into it then matters might just get worst.I think this because they could start fights and wars and that’s not what we want.To make this vote fair everyone around the world should decide not just Catalonia.

    • Why do you think everyone should vote? This is an idea I haven’t heard before so I am keen to hear what other people think about this. What would be the advantage of other people voting on this issue? Would it work? Olivia
