According to emerging reports, Catalonia's parliament has voted to declare independence from Spain, and proclaim themselves a republic.

The news comes after the Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, warned that the region would ultimately face the repercussions of a violation of laws should Catalan lawmakers pass the vote.

In a 135-strong assembly, 70 votes went in favour of independence while 10 went against and two were abstentions.

The vote is likely to be declared illegal by Spain's constitutional court.

It is understood that the Socialist Party, the People’s Party (PP) and Ciudadanos exited the chamber prior to the vote in protest at the impending ballot.

A Twitter account called Trump Regrets has been set up, and it's pretty significant.

Significant because, well… it shows just how many people carry guilt about their decision to vote for Donald Trump.

The account has given an insight into Trump supporters and reveals all the different ways that the new president has let his fans down.


Here at SHEmazing! we’re not going to ask you to vote yes in tomorrow's marriage referendum. 

But then, we’re not going to tell you to vote no either. And we’re unwilling to weigh-in on what age our presidents should be.

Here’s what we are requesting: that you vote.

Tomorrow is a hugely important day in this country’s history. But in many other ways, it will be like any other Friday.

Because it will be busy and it will be hectic. People will be jumping on buses, sitting in traffic, going to work, juggling appointments, and honouring commitments. And we all know how unexpected annoyances crop up at the most irritating of times.

In short, despite good intentions it’s not always easy to make it to your local polling station.

But if you’re unable to vote, then you’re unable to make your voice heard, and you will be prevented from exercising your right to shape this country’s future.

So please, don’t assume you’ll vote “at some stage”. Instead, plan your day; leave your house a half an hour before you usually do; get an earlier bus home “just in case” – but do whatever it takes to guarantee that you are present and correct, free and able to mark the yes or no box as you see fit.

And then, as the result emerges over the weekend, you can at least know that you played your part – regardless of the outcome.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm. See www.refcom2015.ie for more information.
