These so-called independence movements are a sham. They are encouraged by the EU in order to carve up nation-states in a divide-and-conquer fashion . . . and most of these new independence types declare that they want to be members of the EU post-independence, so it isnt independence at all. Just another way to tear away the power of the individual member state governments.

One wonders how often the Venetians are “bailed out”.

I don’t know about Venice....but in the case of Scotland, I think the Tories should encourage it. The Scots are hopelessly labor and I’ve always wondered why the Tories don’t let them go their own way.
Look at a UK election map. England outside of London votes overwhelmingly conservative. It’s London, Wales and Scotland that give the left almost all of their support. Let ‘em go and say good riddance!

What will happen to the Venetian blind, if they are no longer covered by Italian and EU social programs?
