Catalonia's leader: 'We will declare independence in a matter of days'

Barcelona star Gerard Pique was reduced to tears after the Catalonia vote
Puigdemont warned that if the Spanish government attempted to intervene and take control of Catalonia's government, it would be "an error which changes everything".
The King condemned the referendum this evening accusing Catalonian politicians of behaving irresponsibly and risking the entire country's economic stability.
Many people in Catalonia who opposed independence said they would not vote in the referendum, which they denounced as a sham. Mindful not to encourage other separatist forces within its member states, Brussels has made its position clear that the Catalan referendum was "not legal". "When I see a country where we have known how to coexist and set a good example to follow around the world", he added, leaving the final part of his sentence to drift, unfinished.
Of those who voted, some 90 percent voted yes to independence.
The clash between Madrid and the rebel administration in Barcelona is escalating again after the king, whose word traditionally carries weight in Spain, sought to impose his authority in a televised statement on Tuesday night.
"Violence can never be an instrument in politics".
The king's speech is unlikely to persuade Puigdemont. "Each week, after every mistake, we've gained more support from society; a bigger majority in Catalonia who do not accept this situation".
The Spanish government is adamant that he can not and the country's constitutional court ordered the referendum to be suspended last month.
Catalonia, which is home to Barcelona, has its own language and traditions.
Autonomous Catalonia is Spain's richest region and has a separate language and culture.
But after Sunday's violence it was a delicate balancing act for a Spanish sovereign.
The Foreign Office said the referendum was "a matter for the Spanish government and people".
"What I find harder to understand is this indifference, or absolute lack of interest, in understanding what is happening here", he said.
"There were many arguments in favour and against, but we were playing for the points and the League and Las Palmas wanted to play".
The Catalan government has said there will be an extraordinary meeting of parliament on Monday to discuss the outcome of the disputed referendum.
