Wrong to sup­port par­ti­tion of Spain

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Letters -

Sir — Hav­ing in the past found com­mon cause with such regimes as ex­ist in Cuba and Venezuela, the usual ‘use­ful id­iots’ have now aligned them­selves with the cause of na­tion­al­ist sep­a­ratism in Cat­alo­nia whose aim would lead to the par­ti­tion of Spain.

Not­with­stand­ing the over­re­ac­tion and heavy-hand­ed­ness of the Span­ish po­lice in deal­ing with the un­law­ful ref­er­en­dum, the par­ti­tion of Spain as a po­lit­i­cal so­lu­tion is some­thing we in Ire­land should be not be urg­ing or sup­port­ing, par­tic­u­larly in view of our own un­happy ex­pe­ri­ence of Ir­ish par­ti­tion.
