So many reasons for not wanting to continue being a subjugated possession of the Banana Kingdom of Spain

There are so many examples of how misinformed some press sources are! Only a few media like the Financial Times care to send somebody like David Gardner to Catalonia to know the facts first-hand.

Here follow a few of them:

The Spanish government spends €5 millions just to renew the Spanish embassy in Rabat while the whole cost of ALL Catalan delegations overseas is €2.5 million.

Madrid, with a population of 6,489,680 pays
€154,797,343 in pensions while Catalonia, with a population of 7,539,618 pays only €75.370.809.

43 cents out of each euro we pay in taxes is not invested in Catalonia.

15 days without fiscal pillage would pay all cuts in Catalan health care for a whole year.

In two years without fiscal pillage Catalonia wouldn't have any debt.

The Spanish state finances between 80 and 90% of the cost of public senior residences while only finances 50% in Catalonia.

In Madrid public health care has been reduced €4 for each insured person. In Andalusia €6 and in Catalonia €170.

In Catalonia 67% of highways are toll roads while in Madrid only 4%. We Catalans pay a total in toll roads as... France while in Madrid one can use free highways to go anywhere in the peninsula.

In Barcelona there are 7400 openings in public kindergarten, while in Seville there are 22000.

In Catalonia there is a computer for every 5 students. In Extremadura one for every two students.

A course in a nursery college in Barcelona costs a minimum of 1423 EUROS. In Madrid €1088.

Catalonia has the highest tax base in Spain.

Public Catalan workers wages have been decreased 5% more than those of the rest of the Spanish state.

In Madrid teachers get paid for two extra hours this course. Right, not in Catalonia.

Public investment in infrastructures has been reduced 8% in Madrid, 7% in Castilla La Mancha, 45% in Catalonia.

There is no way Spain will admit the slightest approach to what a federal state is. That is why the only path to justice in this country goes through independence.
