It's a decision for the Belgian government or judiciary, not the EU.  ;)
Does Belgium currently have a government? Thought it was under direct EU control following a hung parliament type situation  :-\

I think the democratic and civilised thing to do would be to give Catalonia a legal and fair referendum and put the issue to bed for at least a generation.

I think they do now have a government, but took over a year to hammer out a coalition agreement after elections a couple of years ago. So yes they didn't have an effective government for some time, which incidentally is the situation enjoyed by the Netherlands and Germany at the moment following their recent elections.  ;)

I don't think that Belgium ever came under direct EU control like Italy did a few years ago.  :-\

Let Spain & the EU sort it out in their dying days, where the rest of Europe has moved on following the UK's example. :y :y :y

All a bit concerning now.

The companies that “pulled out” of Catalunia ostensibly to continue to be able to abide by EU governance ( i read that as the ruling pp party asked them to) have started a snowball effect on the economy that might take years to recover from . The bottom line is less tax therefore a problem for the whole of Spain. Two of our local bars have signs up saying boycott Catalan goods!

Sure the elections in December may return some sanity but the damage is done. What a bunch of clowns on both sides .

Why should we be the only country with a weak and ineffective Government, (and opposition).

And the Dutch, who didn't have a government until the end of last month following their elections on 15 March!  :o

Next up is the Italian elections in March 2018 on a backdrop of bank bailouts, increasing government debt and economic stagnation.  ::)

Strong and stable? Nine, Nee, Nada!  ;D
