Now it's the turn of the Catalans - or is it?
Catalan parliament approves independence vote
Catalonia's parliament has voted overwhelmingly in favour of giving its regional president the power to call an independence "consultation".
Spain's government opposes the Catalan "consultation" vote and is taking the dispute to the Constitutional Court.
The move comes a day after Scotland voted against independence from the United Kingdom.
Catalan President Artur Mas said Scotland's referendum had "shown the way" for Catalonian independence.
