The ballot box for the purported referendum on Catalan independence made its surprise appearance before the media on 30 September 2017
By Christopher Collins
Yesterday, after cat-and-mousing it with each other for months, the Generalitat de Catalunya finally showed the box to the media into which they say the ballots of the secessionist referendum will be cast tomorrow, 1 October 2017.
The Government says no Catalan referendum will be held tomorrow.
There’s unease – and even anger and agitation – throughout Spain as the clock ticks away into D Day. Others find it hard to believe that some could think of such a referendum. There’s even melancholy in the air.
