DEPOSED Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has branded the EU a “club of decadent and obsolete countries” and said a British-style “Catalexit” might be the solution.

The pro-independence politician attacked the organisation as outdated in an interview for Israeli TV after his failed attempts to get European backing for his cause from his hideaway in Brussels.

He claimed the EU was a “club of decadent and obsolescent countries controlled by a small few and closely linked to increasingly debatable economic interests”.

Arguing Catalonia should turn the tables on EU chiefs who have warned there would be in place in Europe for the region if it breaks away from the rest of Spain, he added: “They’re constantly telling us we’re going to be left out of the European Union but the ones who should take that decision are the citizens of Catalonia.

“Lets see what the people of Catalonia say.

“Perhaps there are not many people who want to form part of this EU…so insensitive to the abuse of human rights, of the democratic right of a part of its territory only because a post-Franco right wants it to be that way.”

His comments, made during an interview for a programme on Israeli state broadcaster Kan called Zman Emet, were previewed in Catalan daily La Vanguardia.

The interview took place in Brussels where Puigdemont has been holed up since fleeing Spain following the Catalan Parliament’s unilateral declaration of independence at the end of October.

The declaration led to the Spanish government imposing direct rule over Catalonia.
