This is a mess.
So over 90% of over 2 million votes were counted saying ‘yes’ to secession from Spain in the Catalonia independence referendum but the Spanish government is doing its utmost best to thwart their plans, at the same time, claiming that the polls were rigged due to poor administration of the polling process.
And you can see the Spanish police force are very serious.
