Going the legal route in Catalonia, we are told, requires a referendum of all of Spain.

UK exiting the EU under similar rules would have required an EU wide referendum.

I know, I know, member states vs sovereign states, clearly not the same. But still, the comparison does highlight the *fairness* of such a referendum franchise, and the certainty that Madrid will not allow Catalan independence. No matter what.
