Speaking to RT UK, SNP Angus MacNeil hinted that Scotland may be encouraged by the news of the Catalonia independence protests.

Thousands of people took to the streets in Catalonia to vote in an illegal independence referendum on Sunday.

But a brutal police crackdown left over 800 people injured as officers armed in riot-gear stormed polling stations and fired rubber bullets at protesters.

In response to the independence protests, Mr MacNiel said: “Catalonia was once an independent country, 200 years ago, it’s re-establishing that.

“On the Iberian peninsular, of course, we’ve had Portugal already so I don’t see what Madrid is particularly concerned about having Catalonia and Portugal staying in the peninsula with them.

“And there’s been many other parts of Europe watching with interest as to what is happening in Catalonia.

“But I think we have to look at Catalonia on its own merits and given all that has happened in Catalonia, it deserves that.

“I think every place is different but it looks like Catalonia is on the way to independence and it will certainly be encouraging for many others across Europe.”
