The EU should prepare for the breakup of member states, warned Catalonian regional leader, Artur Mas. On Wednesday EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso told MEPs that any break-away state would have to re-apply to join the EU. Earlier this week 1.5 million protested in Madrid against government austerity plans.
