You’ve Heard of ‘Elf on a Shelf’, So Why Can’t Catalonia Vote?

We’ve all heard of the popular new meme doing the rounds on social media, where the phrase ‘elf on a shelf’ is humorously juxtaposed with another rhyming phrase, usually expressed visually, but the more pressing question is ‘why is the Spanish government violently suppressing Catalonia’s right to self-determination?’

Elf on a shelf is all well and good – we’ve had a giggle, and we really hope it’ll pass soon, like the dab, the mannequin challenge and Katie Hopkins – but can a democratic country really prevent one of its districts from holding a seemingly reasonable ballot on whether or not they want to be a separate state?

Even if Britain got our last two independence referendums wrong, with Scotland remaining part of the UK, which then chose to leave Europe, and we all know elf on a shelf, the vote should still probably be allowed to happen, if the people it applies to want it to happen. Some would argue that Catalonia having its own language, culture and economy means a vote would be even more justifiable, and that police shouldn’t have injured 460+ who tried to vote…even if both sides are fully aware of know elf on a shelf.
