Borrell has participated in a day at the Chamber of Commerce of Spain on the Brexit, which has reviewed the problems for the two parties in divorce and how to face the future. The rupture is "extraordinarily difficult," the minister stressed, even though it was a country that maintained its own currency and had not entered the Schengen area, so it maintained its own borders.
Both parties have to put an end to a network of fundamentally market relations and this "is extremely complex," he said. "And it surprises me that, being so, someone could believe that you can separate Catalonia from Spain overnight, by magic," he added, since the autonomous community shares currency, borders and institutions with the rest from the country.
Both independences, the minister added, are "a fantasy". In his opinion, in the United Kingdom "they have found that it was" once the Brexit is a reality; he regretted that the falsehoods that the defenders of the exit spread about their advantages, such as that the country would recover 350 million pounds per week, were not denied in time.
It has also opted to inform citizens in time; The report of the Bank of England known yesterday, which offers very negative economic projections if the exit is not agreed, should have been disseminated before. "Things have to be said before they have an effect on the population," the minister claimed, also referring to Spain.
